Texas Black Expo, host of the largest African-American empowerment festival in Texas, June 19-22 in Houston, announces Nick Cannon featuring Ncredible Artists Kreesha Turner and Wonder Broz has joined the epic lineup of events on Saturday, June 21, 4:00 PM at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
Nick Cannon will be in Houston exclusively for Texas Black Expo. The multi-talented artist will host a concert featuring performances by Ncredible artists Kreesha Turner and Wonder Broz. Admission to the Expo and the concert are free, and are on a first-come basis.
“I can’t wait to hit up Texas with the concert. Texas Black Expo has a lot of incredible entertainment, this just adds slamming performances from the fieriest up-and-coming artists, to an already dynamic event,” says the actor, musician, and TV and radio host.
Kreesha Turner is a Canadian singer-songwriter whose star is steadily rising. Her 2008 tune “Don’t Call Me Baby” from her first album became a number one single on Billboard’s U.S. Hot Dance Club Play. She was also nominated for two Juno Awards for “Best New Artist” and “Best Pop Album of the Year.”
Brothers Gennis and Tool of Wonder Broz are a powerful duo with a loyal following of young fans. Their popular “Chitty Chitty” single and video went viral and propelled them to the forefront of the industry, garnering more than 2.9 million views. Wonder Broz have opened for acts such as Mindless Behavior, Diggy Simmons, the New Boyz and the OMG Girls, and currently have a new hit single “Drop It” featuring Sage the Gemini.
“The positive energy from my fans drives me, and my passion for music,” Kreesha says. “I’m especially pumped to be face-to-face with them at an event that’s dedicated to empowering the community, like Texas Black Expo.”
Approximately 25,000 attendees are expected to attend the 2014 Texas Black Expo Juneteenth Summer Celebration, which also includes a health and wellness exposition, entrepreneur and youth empowerment summits, entertainment events, and a small business marketplace.
