The Daya Rocky Pop Concert is now a free, outdoor concert as part of Student Appreciation Day on Tuesday, April 19.
The Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, along with opener Josie Dunne, will perform at noon on the lawn outside Memorial Field House on The University of Toledo Main Campus.
The special concert is sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs and Campus Activities Programming. For a full list of planned activities for Student Appreciation Day on Main Campus and Health Science Campus, visit the event’s Invonet webpage.
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.
