SOUTH BEND — Mindless Behavior and the OMG Girlz with special guest Hi-RiZ and host Perfect Laughs are going to light up the stage at the Morris Performing Arts Center this spring.
Concert tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday, March 3, for the Shout Out Tour coming to South Bend on April 19.
Mindless Behavior is known for slick R&B songs, sharp dance moves and hip-hop style. Think The Jackson 5 and New Edition meet B2K. Members Prodigy, Roc Royal, Ray Ray and Princeton have been singing together since 2008 and released their debut album, “#1 Girl,” in 2011.
Mindless Behavior’s first single, “My Girl,” was nominated for a 2011 Viewer’s Choice BET Award. “Mrs. Right” snagged the top spot on BET’s “106 and Park” for three consecutive weeks. The teen boy band has shared the stage with the Backstreet Boys and Justin Bieber on sold-out tours.
The rainbowlicious trio OMG Girlz gained national attention with an electric music video for the group’s first single, “Gucci This (Gucci That),” which became a hit on the top 10 list on BET’s “106 and Park.” Miss Star, Miss Beauty and Miss Baby Doll have the energy, sassy attitude and eye-catching style of TLC, the Spice Girls and Destiny’s Child. The OMG Girlz have been featured on BET’s “Tiny and Toya” and “T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle” on VH1.
The music of Hi-RiZ has been inspired by some of pop and R&B’s most popular artists including Alicia Keys, TLC, Beyonce and Janet Jackson. Members Bobi, Hip Hop, Ivana and Sedne have appeared in Word Up Magazine and were featured on the 2012 BET College Tour.
