Nick Jonas performs exclusively for Cal State L.A. students at concert presented by Microsoft

April 6, 2015

Cal State L.A. hosted a special performance by Nick Jonas on Saturday at the Luckman Fine Arts Complex. More than 1,100 students attended the show, which was free for students.

The April 4 event was co-sponsored by Associated Students, Inc., Cal State L.A.’s Information Technology Services, Luckman Fine Arts Complex, University Auxiliary Services and the University-Student Union.

Jonas’ performance to the enthusiastic fans included his multi-platinum smash single and No. 1 U.S. radio hit, “Jealous," as well as his current single, "Chains."

“The entire Cal State L.A. community would like to thank Nick and Microsoft for bringing this great event to our campus,” said President William A. Covino, who introduced the performer to thunderous applause.

Before the concert, Jonas held a Meet and Greet for 20 contest winners. Students who showed proof of Office 365 ProPlus activation before the show had entered for a chance to win and meet the performer.

Cal State L.A. was the winner of the Office 365 “Activate Your Campus” contest. The student population had the highest percentage growth of Office 365 ProPlus activations during the contest, which encouraged students to download Office 365 ProPlus for free, compliments of their school. The winning school would receive an exclusive performance on their campus presented by Microsoft.

Jonas was the youngest member of the Grammy-nominated Jonas Brothers. He is now stepping out on his own and re-inventing himself, which is reflected on his self-titled album debut. The album was released in November 2014.
