This year, Verizon Wireless will be bringing back its much anticipated national APAHM Concert Tour, casting the spotlight on none other than Korean-American superstar, Jay Park. The tour will make stops in Washington DC, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Considered by many as a pioneering music artist, Jay Park is a multi-talented entertainer known for his vocals, song-writing, dancing and acting skills. With a growing fan base that crosses global boundaries, Jay Park is also known for his charismatic and confident personality, making him one of the most popular and admired artists of this generation.
Born and raised in Seattle, Washington, Jay Park embraces his roots as an Asian American. His background and accomplishments enable him to inspire and resonate with the Asian American community. While he enjoys a great deal of success in Korea, Jay tasted a glimpse of stardom in the U.S., when he posted a cover of B.o.B and Bruno Mars’ “Nothin’ on You” on YouTube, which went viral in a matter of minutes. Jay Park’s songs are known for consistently claiming the top spots on the charts and his music videos continue to gain millions of impressions worldwide.
With the rising popularity of K-pop in the U.S., Verizon Wireless is looking forward to celebrate Asian Pacific Heritage Month with Jay Park’s return to the states. Jay will be performing hits from his latest album, “New Breed,” his first full-length album as a solo artist. “New Breed” has already sold over 80,000 copies, topping the iTunes charts in Canada, Australia and the U.S.
Opening for Jay Park in Washington DC and New York will be Dumbfoundead and Viennie V. Dumbfoundead is one of the first Asian-American hip-hop artists to break the underground hip-hop scene.

Viennie V, a rising Asian-American pop singer, is known for her sultry vocals. Songs from her latest album, “Nightmare or Dream,” hit the top spots on the YouTube music charts.
