All Mahomies within range need to perk up their ears for some big news. Austin Mahone is not only presenting at the 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards, he’s also going to perform at the event. Mahone has been on quite a tear recently. He released “The Secret,” his debut album, and he’s been spotted in the studio with none other than Justin Bieber. He’s headlining a massive tour this summer, and he recently knocked everybody out with his performance at the Kids’ Choice Awards. On top of all that, he just turned 18. Whew! That’s a lot to have on your plate at such a tender age.
Austin also blew the minds of a posse of students at the Miami Sports, Leadership and Management Academy when he dropped by and played three songs for the star-struck kids. That was when he announced that he would be presenting and performing at the 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards. He’ll be in good company at the awards show with other presenters like Julianne Hough, Kelly Osbourne and Cody Simpson. While at the academy, he hald a raffle to win a trip to fly to Los Angeles and go to the awards show, which is being held on Saturday, April 26 at the Nokia Theater at L.A. Live. The show will be televised the next day, Sunday, April 27 at 8:00 EDT and 7:00 CDT. If you want tickets to the awards show and after party, contact us at VIP Concierge. We’ll hook you up for the time of your life.
