SPA To Host Jason Derulo For Virtual Concert August 27

Penn State’s Student Programming Association (SPA) will host singer-songwriter Jason Derulo for a virtual concert on Thursday, August 27.

Derulo’s performance will begin at 8 p.m. that night. The concert will be streamed through a virtual link presented by WPSU Radio. Students will receive access to the link once they sign up and reserve their spot using this form.

Referred to as a “worldwide entertainer,” Derulo is known for pumping out middle school bangers including “Watcha Say,” “Ridin’ Solo,” and “It Girl,” among others. He currently has nearly 50 million monthly listeners on Spotify and more than 100 million followers across all social media platforms, according to SPA.

His latest single, “Take You Dancing,” released with a popular music video that’s already amassed more than 14 million views.

Derulo has also appeared on television programs including “Dancing With The Stars” and “Empire.” Additionally, he played Rum Tum Tugger in 2019’s “Cats,” a box-office flop based on the 1981 stage musical of the same name.

Like every SPA event, Derulo’s performance is free for students and funded by their student-initiated fee. Students will need to verify themselves using their WebAccess IDs before entering the virtual event.
