It’s finally here. Get ready to go wild and dance like nobody’s watching! ASI is presenting its annual Big Event on May 12, 2017—a concert featuring R&B and Hip-Hop acts Jeremih, Juicy J and Ella Mai!
“This is always the biggest ASI event of the year!” exclaimed third year English major and Lead Program Assistant Kaila-Marie Hardaway. “It’s a chance to give back to students after all their hard work, allowing them to celebrate and end the year with a bang. There’s always a lot of hype and energy surrounding the event, but we’re raising the bar this year with what will be an unforgettable, unmissable performance.”
Rocking the Walter Pyramid stage is R&B giant Jeremih, whose catalogue boasts Billboard chart-topping songs like “Birthday Sex” and “Down On Me,” as well as Grammy-nominated “Planez” featuring J. Cole. Performing alongside him is Academy Award-winning rapper Juicy J, who is popularized by a prolific body of work, Grammy-nominated song "Dark Horse" with Katy Perry and World Music Award-winning song "23" with Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalifa and Mike Will Made It.
Joining them both on stage is London-based R&B singer Ella Mai, who The FADER dubbed “The New Queen Of The Breakup Anthem” for her hit single “She Don’t” featuring Ty Dolla Sign and produced by DJ Mustard. Her debut EP “Time” is amassing near-perfect reviews and was featured on OVO Sound and Beats 1 Radio.
In past years, the ASI Big Event has packed out the Walter Pyramid with entertainers like Trey Songz, Miguel and Wale.
The ASI Big Event will take place on Friday, May 12 in the Walter Pyramid. Doors will open at 6 p.m. For ticket information, visit www.asicsulb.org/bigevent2017.
