Blaqshion, a group from the Black Student Alliance, will soon host one of their major shows of the spring semester, “World Tour.”

The show will be on April 15 in the Russell Union Ballroom. The preshow will start at 5:30 p.m., and the main show will start at 7:30 p.m.

“It will be a world tour concert. We chose five famous people, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Lil Wayne and Kanye West. We will be giving performances as well as displaying some of their most iconic looks,” Christopher Zenn, junior fashion major and coordinator of Blaqshion, said.

Blaqshion consists of hair, makeup and fashion departments and a modeling troupe. The organization was started by Michael Knight, the founder of the Dyverzion Dance Team.

“Here, we like to implement dance, modeling and clothing. Mix it together and you get Blaqshion,” Zenn said.

Blaqshion is building a large presence on campus through performances, pop-up events, and partnering with other organizations.

Zeno said, “They have always had a huge presence on campus, and this year as coordinator, I’m just trying to keep that up, keep that spirit that they have always had.”
