COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Pop singer and Colorado native Nina Storey will perform at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs at 7 p.m. on April 2 at Clyde’s.

The concert is sponsored by the UCCS Office of Student Activities and UCCS Radio. The show will start at 5 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

Storey has been interviewed regularly on UCCS Radio, and after a successful concert at the Stargazers venue in January, Storey will follow up with another performance at UCCS.

“We are very excited to have such a talented performer visit UCCS,” said station manager Brandon Ortega. “Nina Storey is an up-and-coming musician, and we wanted to bring her to the university so the community can enjoy a great concert.”

Nina’s forthcoming album, Think Twice, delivers honest and hypnotic songs steeped in classic soul-pop. Storey describes the record as having “the sensibility of an old- school soul record from the likes of Eartha Kitt, Diana Ross and the Ronettes with a modern, Bruno Mars pop edge.”

In addition to Nina Storey, the concert event will feature other local artists, including VetLyfe, Doe Renee, A Black Day, and the Hopeful Heroines.
