98.5 KISS-FM is bringing Atlantic Records teen star Cody Simpson to Peoria for a special performance at Limestone High School, winners of the "KISS-FM Back To School Spirit contest." Cody, often compared to teen sensation Justin Bieber, will perform his single "On My Mind" as well as answer questions from students, and sign autographs for his fans.
Limestone High School won this honor by accumulating the most votes in a two week online contest at www.KISSpeoria.com. All schools in Central Illinois were included in the contest.
Cody Simpson grew up on Australia's Gold Coast and learned from his father to play guitar at age 7. By the time he turned 12, Cody had posted videos of himself performing cover versions of songs by his influences including Justin Timberlake, Jason Mraz and The Jacksons. His YouTube Channel has been viewed more than 41 million times and he has more than 152,000 fans worldwide who subscribe. It was through his YouTube success that Cody got his first record deal and the chance to perform his first single with Flo Rida. Cody is currently on a tour across the United States to promote his new EP, "Coast to Coast" that will be available September 20th. For more information on Cody Simpson, visit www.codysimpson.com.
