Ben Rector and Hilary Weeks to headline BYU Spectacular!
Hit-making Nashville-based singer-songwriter Ben Rector will be the featured talent for BYU Spectacular! 2019. Joining him will be prolific LDS-Christian crossover artist Hilary Weeks for an audience-wowing performance at the Brigham Young University Marriott center as part of BYU Homecoming 2019. Joining them will be music, dance, and athletic talent from BYU’s storied performance groups.
BYU Spectacular! offers two performances: Thursday, October 17, and Friday, October 18, 2019 at 7:30 pm. Tickets for the general public go on sale July 15th at BYUtickets.com, with advance ticket sales for BYU alumni and students and ArtsPass holders the week prior.
Rector’s breakaway hit “Brand New” on his sixth album, “Brand New”, came in at #9 on the Billboard Top 200. His ceaseless touring, prolific writing, and multi-instrumental talent has clocked up more than 41 million streams on Spotify and put him in trailers and movie spots everywhere—from Disney’s Moana to the MLB World Series.
Weeks’ 11 CDs are well known to her fans, and the Every Step, Say Love, and Love Your Life albums all made it into the top ten on the Christian Billboard charts. Her creative output hasn’t been diminished at all by her Wasatch Front residence.
BYU Spectacular! brings world-class performers to the large audiences joining BYU in its Homecoming celebrations. Its two 90-minute shows are presented by BYU Alumni and sponsored by Deseret First Credit Union.
This year’s headliners will be joined by BYU performing arts groups Vocal Point, Men’s Chorus, Young Ambassadors, Ballroom Dance Company, Cougarettes, International Folk Dance Ensemble, and Dunk Team.
