On Friday, April 21, Colleges Against Cancer (CAC) and the Campus Activities Board (CAB) will team up to bring Aaron Carter to perform at the Spring Fling: Concert for a Cure at DeSales’ Relay for Life.

The artist for the concert was revealed at a throwback to the 2000s sleepover party, hosted by CAC and CAB, in McShea on Wednesday, March 21. Students who attended enjoyed free pizza, sleepover snacks, hair dye, and crafts.

Leading up to the reveal, students were invited to vote on who they thought the Spring Fling artist would be. After some guesses for Jesse McCartney and Joey Fatone, junior Penelope Placide made the correct guess of Carter and won a basket prize.

Carter’s claim to fame in the late ‘90s and early 2000s were pop chart-toppers such as “I Want Candy” and “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It).” His second album Aaron’s Party (Come Get It) was certified as 3x Platinum for selling over three million copies. He has released four albums, appeared on various Disney Channel and Nickelodeon TV shows, finished in fifth place on season nine of Dancing with the Stars, and starred in his own reality TV show House of Carters. His latest five-song EP, LØVË, includes singles “Sooner or Later” and “Fool’s Gold.”

Assistant director of student engagement and leadership Tracy Gallagher is excited to bring Carter to DSU.

“[Carter] was on our possible list, and I knew he did very well at Muhlenberg a few years ago, so we just went for it!” she said.

All traditional day students must register with a Relay for Life team if they wish to attend the concert. Students who do not already have a team to register with will be able to register with a generic team set up through CAB.

Tickets for the general public are $15 and are available here. The concert will be held outside, weather permitting.
