The election of the 45th President of the United States is turning out to be a tightly contested event. Many have seen the need to have every vote counted and have come together for the Wilton Manors Get Out The Vote Bar Crawl.
The Crawl Starts at 2 p.m. on Sept. 30 at Sidelines and concludes at Matty’s at the opposite end of the Drive. Crawlers will be treated to a performance by rising star and Internet sensation Brandon Hilton as his Frozen Heart Tour stops in South Florida.
Brandon Hilton, born Brandon James, is the epitome of an Internet sensation. He stated as a model at the age of 14 with ad campaigns for designers and department stores. At 18, like many his age, Brandon started a MySpace page that launched him into Internet stardom.
"It freaked me out at first, because all I did was create an account, post a picture, and then bam!” said Brandon.
In 2007, Brandon released his first single, “I Wunna Meet You,” on MySpace that garnered him a cult fan following and a YouTube hit with over 2 million views.
In July 2010, just shy of his 23rd birthday, Brandon released his debut album, “Dirty On The Dance Floor.”
The album would eventually make it to number ten on the electronic/dance charts. 2011 would prove to be his breakout year with his second album, “Nocturnal,” peaking at a career high 63 on iTunes’ pop charts. Brandon now has 17 tracks, 4 singles, 3 music videos, accumulated over 4 million YouTube views, over 150,000 MySpace fans, over 40,000 twitter followers and over 15,000 likes on Facebook.
2012 will mark the release of his second studio album and third album overall. He pre-released two singles, “One” and most recently “Set Fire to the Night,” to a very pleased crowd of listeners. The currently untitled album is slated to be his best yet with tracks co-produced by producers who've also worked with Foster the People, Britney Spears, and many others.
Brandon has called the album "a dance floor killer" and his "masterpiece of pop music!"
Be sure to catch Brandon, his voice and his beats this Sunday at Matty’s On The Drive. And if you haven’t registered to vote or updated your information, workers will be on hand to assist you take care of all of that so that come November, just like Brandon, your voice is heard.
