Jay Sean to perform at SASA’s spring concert

Jay Sean will perform at Northwestern as the headliner for the South Asian Student Alliance’s spring concert, the group announced Friday.

SASA’s annual spring concert usually showcases South Asian performances to raise money for a charity. The group has not announced this year’s charity yet.

The group chose Sean to appeal to a larger audience, said Weinberg freshman Meghna Katta, who arranged for Sean to come to NU.

“We look to see if they’re relevant at the time,” she said. “It’s more fun when you attend the concert if you’re really familiar with their music.”

Last year, the audience filled McCormick Auditorium, which fits more than 350 people. The venue for this year is Ryan Auditorium, which fits twice as many people.

The group hopes to have larger attendance than last year because Sean is the most well-known artist SASA has hired to perform at its annual concert, Weinberg junior and SASA’s former president Amar Shah said.

The concert will take place April 17.
