Grammy-nominated artist Drake to perform at Binghamton University
BINGHAMTON, NY – Hip-hop artist Drake is set to perform at the Binghamton University Events Center at 8 p.m. Friday, October 1.
This September, Drake begins his national Light Dreams and Nightmares tour, sponsored by AT&T and featuring special guest, the Clipse. The Binghamton show immediately follows two sold-out Radio City Music Hall dates.
Based out of Canada, and named "Best Male Hip Hop Artist" at the 2010 BET Awards, Drake released his extremely successful debut album "Thank Me Later" in June. His best-known songs "Best I Ever Had" and "Find Your Love" both broke the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, and the album went platinum within the first month. He has also collaborated with high profile rap and hip-hop artists such as Kanye West and Lil Wayne.
Others may also recognize Drake from his role on the popular television show Degrassi: The Next Generation.
According to Aaron Cohn, Binghamton University Student Association VP for Programming, “It is going to be a high-energy, exciting show. Drake is a hot act right now, and we felt he appealed to a wide group of students and community members. He's arguably the biggest hip-hop artist we have ever brought to Binghamton."
This program is sponsored by the Student Association Programming Board.
