Jeremih To Headline SPA, Movin’ On’s ‘LightsUP’ Event August 28

Pop R&B singer-songwriter Jeremih will perform a free concert on the HUB Lawn next weekend to ring in Penn State’s fall semester.

In collaboration with Movin’ On, Penn State’s Student Programming Association (SPA) will host a full slate of activities at a new event called “LightsUP.” The event begins at 5 p.m. on Saturday, August 28, on the HUB Lawn, while Jeremih’s concert will start at 9 p.m.

LightsUP will feature performances from the Caliente Dance Team and a few student musicians. Attendees can also check out a photo booth or receive airbrush tattoos.

The full event is completely free for students. According to SPA, LightsUP aims to celebrate the start of the school year and bring students together.

LightsUP will ultimately follow Penn State’s current COVID-19-related guidelines, which are subject to change. SPA said more details on safety protocols will be released “in the very near future.”

Jeremih leaped into the mainstream in 2009 with his top-10 hit, “Birthday Sex.” Since then, he’s released three studio albums, worked with artists like Future and J Cole, and earned a Grammy nomination.

In years past, SPA and Movin’ On have collaborated to bring T-Pain and Ty Dolla $ign to the HUB Lawn to respectively celebrate the beginning of 2018 and 2019’s fall semesters.
