Nick Cannon Concert

Famed Rapper Set To Perform Feb. 21 at Wittenberg University

You’ve seen him in the movies Drumline, Men in Black 2and Love Don’t Cost a Thing, which is still in theaters. At 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 21, the Springfield community can get a closer look at one of the entertainment industry’s hottest young stars when Nick Cannon stages a concert at Wittenberg University in the Health, Physical Education and Recreation Center.

Cannon’s versatility is evident. He has proven his acting abilities on television and in films; he has enjoyed success as a singer, and most recently he became the executive producer of the hit Nickelodeon series The Nick Cannon Show.

Cannon made his debut in late 2001 with a remake of DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince’s 1988 hit, Parents Just Don’t Understand, which appeared on the Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius soundtrack. Cannon returned in early 2003 with his self-titled debut album and its leadoff single, Your Pops Don’t Like Me (I Really Don’t Like This Dude), followed by hits Feelin’ Freaky and Gigolo.

Concerned Black Students (CBS), Union Board and Student Senate are sponsoring Cannon’s visit to Wittenberg.

“CBS believes that Nick Cannon’s talent can be enjoyed by a very diverse group of people of all ages, and we hope everyone will give him a warm Wittenberg welcome,” said junior Kia Armstrong, vice president of CBS.

Tickets are $10 for Wittenberg students and $15 for the general public and can be purchased in advance at the Benham-Pence Student Center or at the door the evening of the concert. Call (937) 327-7815 for more information.
