Homecoming Live is a student organized event to showcase the talent of the student body as well as the talent of our headlining performer, Tinashe. Not only is Tinashe a multi-platinum-certified R&B disruptor singer, writer, and dancer, but she also produces, mixes, engineers, creative directs, and edits. As a result, she blazes past any and all boundaries taking full control of her independence as she revs up to release her latest project “333”; a multi-track compilation featuring her singles “Pasadena” featuring Buddy, and “Bouncin”.

Tinashe’s music can be described as seductive R&B, edgy pop, and a nocturnal electronic sensibility, she emerged as a fascinating, focused, and fiery outlier in 2014 with her full-length debut Aquarius. Powered by the double-platinum smash “2 On” featuring ScHoolboy Q, the album reached the Top 20 of the Billboard Top 200 upon arrival before popping up on year-end lists by Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, Stereogum, The Guardian, and Vulture.

Between headlining two world tours and accruing over 2.9 billion global streams with over 1.8 billion global tracks downloaded she has worked alongside Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Chance the Rapper, Brittany Spears, A$AP Rocky, Calvin Harris, and Maroon5, she created the official mixtape Nightride. Rolling Stone Magazine and Fuse both proclaimed it among the “20 Best R&B Albums of 2016.” Along the way, she graced the covers of Complex, V, Dazed, and Nylon, Schön, Gaytimes, and L’Officiel. Tinashe performed the lead role of Mimi Marquez in the Fox television special Rent: LIVE. She also has performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Conan, and Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! She is represented by Roc, Nation, UTA and imPRint and can be found at www.tinashenow.com.

The FSU Homecoming Council is proud to present both an innovative and exciting week of events that provide a warm welcome for those returning to FSU as well as newcomers experiencing Homecoming with us for the first time. This year, the FSU Homecoming Council has worked extremely hard to channel classic Florida State tradition while also providing an experience to make new memories among students, alumni, faculty, and staff. The FSU Homecoming Council invites everyone to attend and enjoy the following week of events from September 26 to October 2.
