Description

Welcome to the 1st annual Frisco Education Celebration! A benefit concert & esports tournament for the Frisco Independent School District hosted by 2018 American Idol Top 24 Finalist, Ron Bultongez. The 4 hour event is a fun time for parents and students (all ages) to come out and celebrate the beginning of a new school year in Frisco. We have an amazing line up of performers that include top music artists from the past season of American Idol, incredible sounds from veteran artists and also an up and coming pop star that is an incoming Frisco ISD highschool senior.

The goal of the Frisco Education Celebration is to raise awareness about the importance of educational achievement for every student in the district and also to support the school district with a financial gift to support the purchase of school supplies for teachers & students. The Frisco Education Celebration will be an awesome integration of gaming & esports, live music, great food and fantastic prizes for attendees.

Host - Ron Bultongez -Singer-songwriter Ron Bultongez is living the American Dream. From growing up in the Democratic Republic of Congo to being named the “Hometown Hero” of Plano, TX and becoming a Top 24 Finalist on American Idol 2018, where he left Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan in awe of his voice. Ron’s dreams have taken him far. His journey, depth, and spirit are evident in his smooth yet raspy vocals and his bluesy, soulful songwriting.

Performer - Britney Holmes of Frisco auditioned for American Idol’s 16th season. After initially being told "no" by the celebrity judges (Luke Bryan, Lionel Richie and Katy Perry), Katy Perry brought Britney back for a second chance to audition during the 2017 American Music Awards. After fans voted her back into the competition, Lionel Richie officially announced Britney as the first contestant to receive a golden ticket to Hollywood. Britney advanced into American Idol's top 50 and is now working on her debut fall release.

Harper is currently performing around Dallas, Fort Worth and Nashville. "I knew music was my destiny, and I want to create music that will one day touch the hearts of girls and inspire them to always follow their dreams."
