The Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB) is pleased to announce singer, songwriter and performer Tinashe and multi-talented artist Nick Jonas are confirmed to perform for the 2nd Annual Guam Live International Music Festival slated for June 5-6, 2015 at Paseo Stadium in Hagatña.
The Rising Star
The stunning 21-year old star, Tinashe brings a distinct and dynamic vision of R&B punctuated by hip-hop attitude, pop flavor, rock swagger and electronica spark. This specific and unique mixture of genres can be traced back to her childhood in Los Angeles and her father’s Shona Heritage from Zimbabwe.
Tinashe’s released Aquarius, her debut studio album including her recent single “2 On” featuring Schoolboy Q and produced DJ Mustard, making a solid presence to the people.
In addition to her music career, Tinashe has had TV and film roles in The Polar Express with Tom Hanks and a recurring spot on Two and a Half Men. She is currently on tour with Guam Live headliner Nick Jonas and also teamed up with him for a remix of his chart topping single, “Jealous.”
“Tinashe is a welcome addition to our lineup for Guam Live,” said GVB General Manager Nathan Denight. “With a variety of local and international acts expected to perform live in paradise, there’s something for everyone. This GVB signature event will no doubt draw thousands and help stimulate our local economy. We encourage everyone to come out and share some of that Guam Love at the music festival this June.”
Stepping Out on his Own
The 22 year old former Disney star, Nick Jonas made a name as part of the Grammy nominated Jonas Brothers. He began to step out on his own after the release of his self-titled album, NICK JONAS, with his singles, “Chains” and “Jealous” making it to the top of music charts and airwaves. He also recently played an MMA prize fighter for the television show Kingdom.
“We’re excited to welcome Nick Jonas to Guam as a headliner for GVB’s second annual Guam Live International Music Festival,” said Denight. “GVB created this signature music event to benefit our local community and take tourism to greater heights. Music unites people from all walks of life and what better way to do it than on our island paradise. We encourage everyone to stay tuned as we continue to announce the line-up for all international and local acts to be featured at Guam Live.
Tickets have officially gone on sale at www.guam-live.com and at all 76/Circle K locations. The two-day GVB signature event will feature pop, rock, reggae, hip-hop and island music performed by international artists from all across the globe. The Guam Live festival grounds will include Chamorro Village, Paseo Park, and surrounding areas. The event is expected to draw thousands of visitors to our region, boost the local economy and help with revitalization efforts in Guam’s capital city of Hågatña.
The additional headliners for the 2015 Guam Live International Music Festival will be announced soon. Last year, top-rated acts from all over the world performed at Paseo Stadium, such as Sublime with Rome, Matisyahu, Steel Pulse, and Guam’s own Pia Mia. Talent from Guam’s major visitor source markets also took the Guam Live stage including Japan’s Home Made Kazoku and Izah Blue, Korea’s Brown Eyed Girls and NU’EST, and Taiwan’s Popu Lady.
