MIAMI LAKES, Fla. (www.orangebowl.org) – The Orange Bowl has announced that multi-platinum recording rapper and singer-songwriter Flo Rida will perform at the Discover Championship Fan Experience presented by Bud Light & Dr Pepper, taking place January 5-6, 2013. The free, two-day family-friendly fan experience created by the Orange Bowl as a community celebration of the 2013 Discover BCS National Championship Game, will take place on famed South Beach, and feature a Sunday evening performance by Flo Rida. Additional performances by some of the music industry’s hottest artists will be announced at a later date.
The Florida-born rapper has become a chart fixture thanks to his blockbuster singles “Low (feat. T-Pain),” “Right Round,” “Club Can’t Handle Me,” and his most recent chart-topping hits, “Good Feeling” and “Wild Ones (feat. Sia).” He’s also broken down barriers by uniting millions of fans of pop, hip-hop, and club music around the world, and establishing himself as an international, genre-busting superstar in the process. Flo Rida is quickly approaching a remarkable 60 million singles sold worldwide, with “Wild Ones (feat. Sia)” marking the superstar’s sixth consecutive RIAA platinum certified single and his fifth top 5 hit on the all-encompassing Billboard “Hot 100” chart.
In addition to the exciting musical entertainment, fans of all ages will enjoy an interactive “fan area,” featuring inflatables, a zip line, games and more, as well as performances by National Championship team bands, cheerleaders and local talent. Fans will also have the opportunity to take a free photo with The Coaches’ Trophy Presented by Dr Pepper. The Discover Championship Fan Experience presented by Bud Light & Dr Pepper will take place from Noon – 8 p.m. on Ocean Drive between 7th and 10th Street. Admission to the Discover Championship Fan Experience presented by Bud Light & Dr Pepper is free and open to the public.
As part of the Discover Championship Fan Experience, Discover will be offering fans the opportunity to experience the glory of scoring a touchdown for their team during the 2013 BCS National Championship Game with a personalized video or photo through its "Get in the Game" interactive display.
