DECORAH — A Grammy-winning rapper and singer is coming to a college campus in Northeast Iowa this spring.
T-Pain, known for hits like “Buy U a Drank,” “I’m N Luv” and “Bartender,” will perform at 8 p.m. May 3 in the Regents Center on the Luther College campus in Decorah.
The performance is sponsored by Luther’s Student Activities Council Concerts Committee. T-Pain, who lives in Tallahassee, Fla., is credited with popularizing Auto-Tune pitch correction to create distinct vocal sounds.
He has won two Grammy Awards, for Best Rap Song in 2008 with Kanye West for “Good Life,” and for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal in 2010 with Jamie Foxx for “Blame It.”
