WWE announced that platinum selling singer, songwriter, producer and entertainer Tinashe will perform “America the Beautiful,” drop kicking off WrestleMania 33 on Sunday, April 2 in front of a sold-out crowd at Camping World Stadium (the Citrus Bowl) in Orlando and live around the world on WWE Network at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
“I’m excited to perform ‘America the Beautiful’ at this year’s WrestleMania,” said Tinashe. “Being part of WWE’s biggest event of the year is an honor and I look forward to seeing everyone in Orlando.”
Neil Lawi, Senior Vice President and General Manager, WWE Music Group, said: “Tinashe joins the likes of renowned artists Ray Charles, John Legend, Aretha Franklin, Nicole Scherzinger, and most recently Fifth Harmony, who have opened WWE’s annual pop-culture extravaganza. Tinashe will continue this great tradition and we look forward to her performance at this year’s WrestleMania.”
On Thursday, March 16, Tinashe released her brand new single, “Flame.” The track, which was produced by Sir Nolan, is available at all digital retail and streaming partners.
Never miss a local story.
The release of “Flame” follows on the heels of Tinashe’s critically acclaimed Nightride project, released late last year. The 14-track project, a companion piece to her upcoming studio album, includes stand-out track “Company.” The song recently received an attention-grabbing video clip, a full-on dance assault, all done in one take.
Here is the video for “Company.”
Nightride is the first of a two-part series, which will include Tinashe’s sophomore studio album, Joyride.
