(From The Campus Lantern – April 30th, 2015)
On Sunday, April 26, CAB hosted their annual Spring Concert featuring T-Pain with special guest DJ Earworm. Doors opened at 6:00 pm, and the show kicked off at 7:00 pm. DJ Earworm started the show playing remixes to popular songs by artists such as Beyoncé, the Notorious B.I.G., and Lil Jon. The crowd had a positive reaction to the special guest; hands were in the air the whole set, and students were dancing to the beat of the songs.
After DJ Earworm, T-Pain’s entourage came onto stage and got the crowd pumped up for the featured artist. Finally, T-Pain himself came on stage and the show really started. The rapper started off with his 2011 hit “Booty Wurk.” Throughout the night, he continued to play hits such as “I’m In Love With a Stripper” and “Buy U a Drank.” He also played some songs that he was featured on, such as “Kiss Kiss” by Chris Brown.
To the crowd’s surprise, the rapper also covered artists such as Queen and Lorde at the show. Throughout T-Pain’s set, lights flashed and the crowd danced and sang along to the songs. T-Pain and his entourage wore Eastern t-shirts on stage, which gave the concert an atmosphere of Eastern pride.
Hundreds of Eastern students attended the concert. It was another great success and there is no doubt that the whole student body is looking forward to the concert that will take place next fall.
