There also will be live performances at the “Rock The Quad” show featuring music artist from the ODU community like include Masego, Wrighteous, UnCommon Ground and more.Masego – Hip Hop, Smooth Jazz, and Contemporary Christian“I think the unpredictable aspect of me as an artist makes live shows something to look forward to. I’m known to freestyle, sing and rap, I do what you call live looping on stage and I always solo on the sax and piano.I’m in the process of currently finding out who I am and what I want to be known as artist wise.”Check out his music at MasegoMusic.com or Youtube.com/Kingzkid24Wrighteous – Hip Hop and Alternative“Anyone who comes out to the show should expect to just have fun. Performing is an experience that is one of a kind and I want to give as much as I possibly can.” Check out his music at http://thatkidwrighteous.bandcamp.com/UnCommon Ground – R&B and Pop“UnCommon Ground is made up of a group of friends who decided to put their vocal and musical talents together to create a band.With Darius Mines, Rivers Taylor, and Clarence Cartwright on vocals, the band creates a unique soul sound that is entirely original and growing.”Check out their music at uncommonground.bandcamp.com
