Headlining Performers

Multi-platinum singer-songwriter Alessia Cara has been topping charts and swaying hearts since her 2015 hit single "Here" debuted to critical acclaim, showcasing her song-writing skills as well as her larger than life voice. In 2016, "Scars to Your Beautiful" reached the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 and hit #1 on the US pop radio charts. Cara's single "How Far I'll Go", written by Lin-Manuel Miranda for the Disney film Moana, has been a runaway hit since its release. Her latest single "Stay" featuring a collaboration with producer and DJ, Zedd, is the summer jam of 2017.

Chicago-based songstress Eryn Allen Kane will open the evening with an electrifying performance. In November 2015, the budding superstar released her solo debut Aviary: Act I. The stunning 4-track effort featured both of Eryn's breakout singles "Have Mercy" and "Slipping," as well as new fan favorite "Piano Song" (featured on BET's Being Mary Jane) which catapulted to #5 on Spotify's "Global Top 50 Charts." "How Many Times," the hit single from her 2016 Aviary: Act II EP is a testament of her momentum as a star on the rise.
