Campus saw them hit the dab with University of Michigan football head coach Jim Harbaugh on National Signing Day, and now they’re coming back to the University to give an even bigger show.  


Migos, an Atlanta based hip-hop trio, will perform at Hill Auditorium  April 13 for Music Matters’ annual charity concert, according to a statement from Music Matters. The group is best known for their chart-topping hits “Versace” and “Hannah Montana” and their viral single “Look at My Dab.”

 


 

Comprised of rappers Quavo, Takeoff and Offset, Migos are self-proclaimed University of Michigan football fans, having released videos on their Twitter account proclaiming their support for the Wolverines. Quavo and Takeoff were also at the University in February for the “Signing of the Stars” event, during which the two dabbed with Harbaugh and former Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland.

 

 

The concert will serve as a part of SpringFest, a daylong festival featuring food, performance and activities for the community during the day.

In a statement, Music Matters President Jibran Ahmed, a Business senior, said Migos’ popular acclaim made them the perfect fit for this year’s charity concert.  

“With Migos becoming an international rap icon, we felt that their energy and popularity will make them the perfect act to headline SpringFest,” Ahmed said.

Past performers for the annual charity concert have included Common, Two Chainz and Ben Folds.

According to Music Matters, ticket prices will start at $10 for students and $20 for the public with all proceeds going toward the organization's summer leadership camp for Detroit youth, which is set to launch in summer 2017. Tickets can be purchased on the Music Matters website beginning Thursday at 10 a.m.
