To celebrate UToledo students as the semester winds down, the Division of Student Affairs has scheduled a free, outdoor concert for Student Appreciation Day on Tuesday, April 19.
The Student Appreciation Day Concert, with Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Daya and opener Josie Dunne, begins at noon on Centennial Mall.
At age 18, Daya scored a double-platinum debut single with “Hide Away” in 2016. A year later, her collaboration with the Chainsmokers, the nine-time platinum single “Don’t Let Me Down,” won a Grammy for Best Dance/Electronic Recording.
Daya has followed up on the gold success of her debut album, “Sit Still, Look Pretty,” with several singles and two EPs, most recently 2021’s “The Difference.”
A singer-songwriter from Chicago, Dunne cites Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles and Amy Winehouse as influences in her own style of dance-pop-and-Motown soul.
