The Stanislaus County Fair Welcomes
Turlock, CA (May 6, 2022) – The Fun is back! “I could take you there!” to the Stanislaus County Fair.
The Stanislaus County Fair Welcomes Double Platinum Hip Hop Star Sean Kinsgton!Monday, July 11, 2022, at the Xfinity Mobile Concert Series on the Coors LightStage at 8:30 p.m. The concert will be hosted by KWIN 97.7, 98.3 and is free with the price of Fair admission.
“I can’t wait to hear everyone sing “Somebody call 911 Shawy fire burning on the dance floor whoah~!” said Jose Piña, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. We are looking forward to having Sean Kingston with us this year, make sure to bring your dancing shoes!
Dedicating nearly his entire life to music and achieving superstardom when he was just 17, Sean Kingston has amassed an untold amount of experience as a singer/songwriter over the years. On his third-full length album Back 2 Life, the 23-year-old builds on that experience by greatly expanding his songwriting role, nixing the multi-producer approach of his last release, and pushing for a fresh new sound. Like his 2007 self-titled debut (featuring the double-platinum breakout hit “Beautiful Girls”) and sophomore album Tomorrow (featuring the smash singles “Fire Burning” and “Face Drop”), Back 2 Life fuses reggae, hip-hop, R&B, and electro to create melody-soaked pop. But on Back 2 Life, the singer/songwriter blends his newly strengthened vocals with fiercely inventive effects and hard-hitting live instrumentation—a formula that’s yielded his most passionately inspired work to date.
With a voracious appetite for music including “everything from Taylor Swift to Ne-Yo to Musiq Soulchild to Paramore”—as well as a deep reverence for artists like Bob Marley, Outkast, and Lauryn Hill—Kingston has recently broadened his musical role by serving as a songwriter for such performers as Jason Derulo (“What Ya Say”) and Iyaz (“Replay”) and discovering new musical talents (including Iyaz, whom Kingston found online and signed to his Time Is Money Entertainment label). Still, having sold more than 12.5 million tracks to date, Kingston’s top priority is continually elevating his own music into new and unexpected territory. “A lot’s happened over the past few years—I’ve traveled the world and had relationships and dealt with breakups, so I’m singing from the heart about things that I actually went through,” says Kingston. In capturing those experiences on Back 2 Life, he adds, his main ambition was to keep positive. “I knew I needed to address some difficult things on the album, but my goal was to do it in an upbeat sort of way,” says Kingston. “So the songs on Back 2 Life are catchy and uptempo and everyone can have a great time to them—but at the same there’s no doubt that it’s all the way real.”
