SPA To Host Charli XCX For Virtual Concert April 23

Boom, clap, the sound of my heart, the beat goes on and on and on and on…You get the picture.

Penn State’s Student Programming Association (SPA) will host singer-songwriter Charli XCX for a virtual concert on Friday, April 23. The event will kick off at 8 p.m. that night.

SPA is working with WPSU Radio to stream the event. Penn State students can sign up to attend here, where they will be sent a link to view the concert.

Two-time Grammy-nominated artist Charli XCX has been widely successful in both singing and songwriting. One of her most famous songs that she is credited for writing is the Shawn Mendes banger “Senorita,” while she also sang on Icona Pop’s “I Love It,” and Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy.” Some of her most successful songs include “Boom Clap” and “Boys,” as well as her May 2020 album, “how I’m feeling now.”

As always, SPA’s event is free to Penn State students and funded by their student-initiated fee. Students will need to verify themselves via their WebAccess ID to access the virtual concert.
