COLUMN: Sean Kingston is the perfect performer for SAA’s SpringFest

Sean Kingston, singer and rapper, will be performing at the 2023 SpringFest at 8 p.m. April 14 in the Johnson Coliseum. Kingston has been a staple artist in many students’ childhoods, and he’s the perfect artist to perform, and somewhat heal one’s inner child, at this year’s SpringFest. 

When you hear the name Sean Kingston, you may think of a few classic songs, like Beautiful Girls,” Fire Burning” and Eenie Meenie” featuring Justin Bieber. Kingston has been a staple artist in many students’ childhoods, and he’s the perfect artist to perform, and somewhat heal one’s inner child, at this year’s SpringFest. 

SFA’s Student Activities Association is presenting SpringFest, where Kingston will be performing. SpringFest is an annual event that focuses on celebrating students, staff, faculty and other community members with entertainment. The performance is going to be at 8 p.m. on April 14 in the Johnson Coliseum. Doors will open early at around 6:30 p.m.  

The performance by the Jamaican American artist is mainly being held due to the cancellation of the Homecoming concert last fall. Kingston made a name for himself in 2007 when, just at 17 years old, his hit song Beautiful Girls” rose to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and remained there for three weeks. He’s also known to do philanthropic work for non-profit organizations.  

SAA picked the perfect performer for this year's SpringFest. He’s an artist that was in many current students’ lives, especially as children. I also think he’s going to do an amazing job at SpringFest!I hope to see everyone at SpringFest not only jamming out but destressing and having fun!
