The greatest North American K-pop convention revealed the third artist to join the line-up!
Following the first announcement just about two weeks ago, KCON 2016 USA gets us excited with the revelation of the third Korean star to perform at KCON 2016 New York! According to the official statement, SEVENTEEN and MAMAMOO will be sharing the stage with none other than Korean-American diva Ailee!
Ever since her impressive pre-debut performance with Wheesung on MBC’s Chuseok special episode of ‘Singer and Trainee’ in 2011, Ailee was receiving a lot of attention, praise and recognition for her outstanding vocal skills and confident stage presence. Her debut song “Heaven”, which was released in February 2012, became a hit and a strong start in Ailee‘s music career.
With every next release, Ailee‘s popularity was growing, bringing her ‘The Best Rookie Singer’ award. Her appearance on KBS’ ‘Immortal Song’ left a strong impression, as Ailee showcased a lot of emotional and sincere performances. Every stage the singer performs on turns into a grand party, and every person that listens to her singing turns into a fan with just one song.
We cannot imagine the Korean music without Ailee anymore, so this is your opportunity to see the real artist live! Check out Ailee‘s teaser video for KCON 2016 New York above!
