BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

A chart-topping singing artist will perform a free acoustic concert to 1,000 fans in Bethlehem.

Cody Simpson's concert is set for July 31 at 11 a.m. at ArtsQuest's Musikfest Cafe, at 101 Founders Way.

After debuting with the single “iYiYi” (featuring Flo Rida), Simpson released his first EP, 2010’s 4 U, which spawned the No. 1 Radio Disney hit “All Day.” In 2011, he made his chart debut with Coast to Coast, which entered Billboard’s album chart at No. 12 and earned him his second Radio Disney No. 1 hit, “On My Mind.”

Simpson has co-headlined tours with Big Time Rush, as well as headlined on his sold-out “Welcome to Paradise” tour.

In 2012, he launched his first European headlining tour and also hit the road as support for Justin Bieber, playing to crowds of 20,000.

The free concert is open to the first 1,000 people in line that day--no tickets are needed.

Concert sponsors B104 radio and ArtsQuest will also be giving away a limited number of VIP tickets and meet and greet passes for the performance. These are available via contests on B104 as well as online at www.B104.com and www.artsquest.org.
