It’s not Toby Keith, but Tara Keith (no relation) who will be making a splash at this year’s GRAMMY awards. The Hamilton, Ontario-based singer won Hitlab’s Emerging Talent Competition and in doing so grabbed herself a GRAMMY gig. The competition launched back in November and was designed to provide an unsigned musician the chance to perform at an official GRAMMY Week event.
Keith, a former contestant on Canadian Idol, was selected by a combination of fan votes and a blue-ribbon committee of music professionals. The 22-year-old, who is now living in Nashville, will perform as a headline act at the 3rd Annual Social Media Rock Stars Summit reception on Friday, Feb. 10. As part of the grand prize, Keith will also walk the red carpet and attend the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards and official GRAMMY Celebration after-party on Sunday, Feb. 12.
Keith’s performance will be streamed live on GRAMMY Live, a three-day live stream platform of coverage on GRAMMY Week events on GRAMMY.com and CBS.com.
