POP SENSATION ANNE-MARIE NAMED RADIO DISNEY’S ‘NBT’ FEATURED ARTIST
Warner Bros. Records’ Anne-Marie has been named Radio Disney’s “NBT” (Next Big Thing) – a multi-platform program that spotlights breakout artists and showcases their journey as they chase their musical dreams.
Anne-Marie, a five-time BRIT Award nominee, will be featured in a series of exclusive “NBT” videos on Radio Disney, Disney Channel, the Radio Disney app, the DisneyNOW app and social media platforms. Later this month, Anne-Marie will stop by the Radio Disney studio to share her excitement about being named the “NBT” featured artist. Radio Disney will also go behind-the-scenes with Anne-Marie as she performs a sold-out solo show at The Roxy Theatre on August 20.
The multi-platinum singer-songwriter’s latest single co-written with Ed Sheeran, “2002,” is making its way up the charts landing on Radio Disney’s Top 30 for 10 weeks – peaking at No. 3. Anne-Marie’s collaboration with Marshmello on the RIAA gold-certified hit song “FRIENDS” rose to No. 11 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, No. 1 on the Radio Disney charts and stayed on Radio Disney’s Top 30 for 18 weeks. Anne-Marie will be opening for Ed Sheeran on his North American Tour that kicks off at the Rose Bowl on August 18 as well as headlining shows through September. Her first full-length album, “Speak Your Mind,” already stands out as the biggest-selling UK debut of 2018.
Radio Disney’s “NBT” program illustrates how the network is delivering on its commitment to identify and nurture emerging talent while providing them with a platform to help boost their careers. Anne-Marie joins an impressive roster of “NBT” alumni who have quickly grown to be some of today’s biggest artists, including Island Records’ Shawn Mendes, Epic Records’ Camila Cabello and Fifth Harmony, GRAMMY®-nominated Kelsea Ballerini, Def Jam Records’ and GRAMMY winner Alessia Cara, Hollywood Records’ Sofia Carson, Kemosabe/RCA Records’ Becky G, Buena Vista Records’ Temecula Road, Atlantic Records’ Why Don’t We and Unitas Entertainment LLC group JAGMAC.
