MIAMI- Rising star Hailey Knox will be performing live at the Miami Open Experience Beach on Friday, March 24th at 7:00pm and again on Saturday, March 25th at 7:00pm. She will be performing 15 minute sets both nights and then will take stadium court prior to the evening session matches to perform “America the Beautiful” on Friday and the National Anthem on Saturday.
The performances, which are being sponsored by Margaritaville, are free to anyone with a ticket to those day’s sessions.
2016 was a breakout year for Knox. She released her debut EP A Little Awkward, was named one of People Magazine’s “One’s to Watch” in 2017, performed on the Today Show, and toured the U.S. with pop star Charlie Puth.
Throughout A Little Awkward, Knox showcases both her guitar playing and soulful voice where she stays true to herself. The 18-year old shows such great maturity through the delivery of her musicianship. Staying true to herself is often shown through her music; “Awkward” is unapologetic in its demand for others to accept Knox as she is.
This year, she has been nominated for an iHeartRadio Music Award and completed two national tours. She has been featured in the NY Times, Teen Vogue, Billboard, and Seventeen Magazine.
Her debut album will be released later this year on S-Curve records.
