While his fame began with lip-syncing on musical.ly, it turns out social media sensation Jacob Sartorius can really sing! And now you can see him live!

Jacob Sartorius will be performing live at Newport Music Hall (1722 N High St. Columbus) this Wednesday Aug 9 at 6:30 p.m.   

After rising to fame via social media, Sartorius signed with T3 Music Group and released his debut single “Sweatshirt” on May 3, 2016. The song peaked at No. 90 on the US Billboard Hot 100, No. 81 on the Canadian Hot 100. Sartorius performed the song for the first time in Baltimore on May 7 during the Magcon tour, a tour where fans can meet and interact with Internet personalities and see them perform. Around that time, Business Insider predicted Sartorius “could be the next Justin Bieber”.

After the tour, Sartorius released two more singles, “Hit or Miss” and “All My Friends”. With “Hit or Miss” debuting at No. 72 in the United States, it is his highest charting single to date. In 2016, Sartorius undertook the All My Friends Tour, a solo mini-tour where he performed in six cities. Three months later, Sartorius announced The Last Text World Tour where he would perform in seven countries in 2017 in support of his debut extended play The Last Text. Sartorius’ E.P. was released on January 20, 2017. Mid-2017, Sartorius signed with RCA Records and on October 6, released his major label debut, Left Me Hangin’.
