The 2012 edition of the Greatest Homecoming on Earth – a title that N.C . A&T State University has long given its slate of Homecoming events – will be highlighted by some of today’s hottest music stars.
On Saturday, Oct. 27 at 7:30 p.m. – hours after the Aggies take on Norfolk State, R&B crooner Trey Songz and rapper 2 Chainz will headline a Student Government and Student Union Activities Board-sponsored concert at the Greensboro Coliseum. The concert will also feature rappers Young Jeezy and Big Sean and up-and-coming singer Elle Varner.
“During the summer, we put together a survey and we asked the students who they desired. We tried to give them what they wanted, keeping our budget in mind,” said Precious Bradley, vice president of external affairs of the SGA. “We wanted to welcome everybody home, so we wanted to appeal to all Aggies, in all age groups,” she said.
