The ASU Summer Concert series is kicking off today, Thursday, June 4 with a virtual concert by singer, song writer Jason Derulo.
It’s an exclusive free concert for ASU students, alum, faculty – and the entire ASU community to connect during this time.
The concerts will be produced live and will include a Q&A session following the performance.
Questions can now be submitted by using the hashtag #ASULiveJason for an opportunity to ask Jason Derulo a question during the Q&A.
Live from his studio, Derulo will perform for thousands of members of the ASU Community including students, faculty, alumni and staff. The ASU Summer Concert Series, Live from ASU, was conceived by ASU President Michael Crow as a way to engage with students and the ASU Community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each concert will be an opportunity to reinforce ASU’s commitment to students, culture of innovation, as well as provide an interactive shared experience with artists.
