Timbaland, Avicii and Agnes Monica To Perform At UN Global Youth Forum: Thursday, 6 December 2012, 6:30 pm WITA

Timbaland Named First-Ever Producer-In-Residence for the mPowering Mobile Platform™

BALI, Indonesia, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --



WHO:

Concert event will include appearances by:




- Global Music Producer/Artist: Timbaland
- Swedish DJ Sensation, Avicii
- Celebrated Indonesian Music Artist, Agnes Monica (a.k.a., AGNEZ MO)
- President of Mosley Music and Host, Monique Mosley



WHAT:

A-list performance marks the announcement of the five-year mPowering Mobile Platform, a groundbreaking program designed to encourage youth to define and share the global issues that are most important to them using mobile technology.




The mPowering Mobile Platform and mobile app will officially launch at a 2013 Grammy Week event, and will enable youth around the world to submit stories about their world, the issues most important to them, and gain access to organizations in their regions relevant to the issues they care about most. In short—mobile technology will become a passport for youth to make a difference on a global scale – one action at a time.




Some of the first digital content on the mobile application will include songs recorded at the concert, as well as an exclusive track by Timbaland and Agnes Monica (a.k.a., AGNEZ MO). Timbaland and Monique Mosley will co-host the evening and share their inspirational stories about causes dear to them. The mobile application will continue to bring in new songs and artists as the mPowering Mobile Platform debuts at other events around the world.



WHY:

With the world population steadily increasing, the resource constraints that come with such sustained growth will impact young people most severely. Yet young people, who account for 43% of the world's population (in some countries, such as Brazil, Nigeria and Tanzania, the number is as high as 60%), can be an innovative source of solutions to these challenges—if engaged and motivated. The mPowering Mobile Platform recognizes this potential by harnessing the power of music to captivate and inspire today's young people to take action alongside organizations that specifically work to improve global issues.



WHEN:

Thursday, 6 December 2012, 6:30 PM WITA

Red Carpet Arrival: 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM WITA



WHERE:

Nusa Dua Bali Convention Center

Bali, Indonesia



ABOUT AVICII:
Beginning his career at 18, the self-taught, fresh-faced Swede that is Avicii has had greater success at 22 than most could hope for in a lifetime. With chart-toppers such as Seek Bromance, My Feelings For You, Fade into Darkness, Silhouettes, and LE7ELS, Avicii has since 2008 risen from bedroom music-maker to international superstar. He has headlined Ultra Music Festival with Madonna, completed a $1M charity tour, done an exclusive collaboration with Ralph Lauren: Denim & Supply, and embarked on one of the biggest EDM arena tours-to-date this year. Kicking 2012 off with his unique 'House for Hunger' tour, Avicii and his manager Ash Pournouri personally donated $1M to the organization 'Feeding America,' by doing a not-for-profit 27-stop tour in the U.S. Additional information about Avicii can be found at: http://www.avicii.com/
