Tampa, Fla. — Multi-platinum pop music artist Gavin DeGraw will headline the Super Saturday Concert presented by AT&T, a FREE event being held during NCAA Women’s Final Four festivities in Tampa Bay. The event, announced by the NCAA and Tampa Bay Local Organizing Committee, will take place at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park on Saturday, April 6 doors open at 5:30 p.m.
The Super Saturday Concert is one of the premier fan events held during the Women’s Final Four and offers an evening of fan-friendly entertainment between semifinals and finals action. The celebration of women’s basketball includes live music, NCAA basketball men’s semifinal coverage and a special fireworks display over Tampa’s famed Riverwalk.
Gavin DeGraw is a multi-platinum selling singer, performer and songwriter. He first broke through with the 2003 release of his debut album, Chariot, which sold over 1 million copies, earned platinum certification, and yielded three hit singles: “I Don’t Want To Be,” “Follow Through,” and the title track, “Chariot.” Gavin’s self-titled second album debuted at No. 1 on the digital sales chart and at No. 7 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart in 2008, earning Gavin his first Top 10 album. It spawned the hit singles “In Love With A Girl,” which Billboard dubbed “a rocking home run,” and the gold-certified “We Belong Together.” His third studio album, Sweeter, was released in September 2011 and produced the smash single, "Not Over You," co-written with OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder. The track reached #1 on the Hot AC charts, was a top 10 hit on Top 40, and was certified double platinum. In addition, Gavin was nominated for his first Grammy for “We Both Know,” the song he co-wrote with Colbie Caillat for the 2013 film, “Safe Haven.” Since then he has been consistently touring around the world, including sold-out dates with the legendary Billy Joel, and hit a milestone with the release of his first greatest hits compilation titled, “Finest Hour.”
