(DEC. 8TH UPDATE – VIDEO ADDED) The annual Jingle Ball of WNCI 97.9 has always filled its lineup with the most popular artists of the year. The 2008 Jingle Ball featured Katy Perry (“I Kissed a Girl”), Natasha Beddingfield (“Unwritten”) and 98 Degrees ex-member Nick Lachey (“What’s Left of Me”) who was also the host of the show.
Last year’s 2009 Jingle Ball had The Fray (“How to Save a Life”), former American Idol contestant Jason Castro (“Hallelujah”), and Bowling for Soup (“I Melt with You”). The Ting Tings (“That’s Not My Name”) was actually the main attraction of the show but canceled due to sickness. Though many were disappointed, the hosts of WNCI shows still kept the audience very animated through games and prizes.
This year, expect more fun and great music from the 2010 WNCI 97.9 Jingle Ball. The show will be opened by New Hollow. The band is composed of three members: Mick, Evan, and Chad. Checkout their smash-hit debut single, “Sick”, here.
Train, who were inescapable this year thanks to the hit song, “Soul Sister ”, will also be performing. If you’re not familiar with Train, then you only need to know that they’re a Grammy award winning band for their song “Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me) ” and they have been in the music business quite a while. They have actually started out in 1996, and have released five albums to date; they have been busily touring for the past twelve years.
Mike Posner, who has just released his debut album last August 10, 2010, is another act to catch on the Jingle Ball. His first single, “Cooler Than Me ”, reached the top 10 in the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
With a lineup like that plus Charice, it’s a no-brainer that you should attend. Charice, most likely will be performing “Pyramid” and maybe that new dance song she’s working on with Jim Beanz, if it gets finished by then, and of course, soaring ballads that she’s known for.
The 2010 WNCI 97.9 Jingle Ball will be on December 7, 2010 at the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion, Columbus, OH. Tickets go on sale Saturday, October 16, 2010, they’re $30. You can also win free tickets just by tuning in to WNCI 97.9. For more details, please visit the Jingle Ball page here.
