AY Young Community Concert & Ice Cream Social
April 12 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT| Free
Come join us for a pop-up concert by AY Young at the Arboretum at Penn State alongside free Berkey Creamery Ice Cream sponsored by the Sustainability Institute.
AY is a producer, singer, songwriter, entertainer, and entrepreneur. He first began writing poetry at 14, a reaction to the great disparity in Kansas City known as “the Troost divide” While touring the USA, AY learned that over 1 billion people lack access to electricity. So AY began powering concerts using renewable energy, raising awareness about sustainability, and fundraising to bring people electricity. Thus, the Battery Tour was born and has plugged in 17 countries to date.
AY landed on The X Factor TV show in 2012 and received four YES’s. Inspired, AY hit the streets performing his original music, garnering a grassroots following and has played with artists Wiz Khalifa, SHAGGY, T-Pain, Flo-rida, Aaron Carter and others. An official UN Youth Envoy, he also performed at President Biden’s inauguration.
This fun event to build community is free and open to all, campus and community. RSVPs are encouraged HERE to help us plan how much ice cream to provide.
