The Washington State Fair welcomes R&B artist Ciara on Friday, Sept. 13, part of the Columbia Bank Concert Series.
Ciara is a Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, producer, model and actress. Over her 13-year career, she has sold more than 23 million records and 16 million singles worldwide, including chart-topping hits “Goodies,” “Ride,” “Oh,” “1, 2 Step,” “Body Party,” and “I Bet.”
Most recently, Ciara has been scorching summer with her new song, “Level Up,” which has transformed into a defining moment for the culture with the subsequent movement it has incited.
Beyond clocking more than 150 million views on YouTube, the song spent several weeks at No. 1 on the iTunes Top R&B/Soul Songs Chart and top 10 on iTunes overall, and attracted Missy Elliott and Fatman Scoop for a high-profile remix, which also shot up the iTunes charts. Its high-powered dance initially inspired fans to shoot their own videos with the hashtag #LevelUpChallenge – stirring up a viral buzz that has seen millions of posts throughout social media and launched the video to a top trending topic on YouTube.
