July 1, 2014 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-EllisFollowing the annual BET Awards taking place on Sunday night, ‘Best New Artist’ of the night August Alsina will be hitting the road with his Testimony Live Tour.
The Def Jam artist released his debut album Testimony earlier this year and the 21 year old has had a great reception from the world of Hip Hop and RnB, with the album’s lead single ‘Make It Home’ alongside Young Jeezy, giving listeners just a fraction of what his honest and stripped back testimonial had to offer.
The tour will kick start today in Toronto, Canada, with dates in his hometown of New Orleans also featuring, as well as Las Vegas, West Hollywood and a closing night in Kansas City on September 21st. Tickets are on sale now.
The annual BET Awards took place at the Nokia Theatre, Los Angeles on Sunday night and other big winners of the night included Pharrell Williams (Best Male RnB Artist) who also opened the show, Beyonce (Best Female RnB Artist), Viewer’s Choice Winner August Alsina, KeKe Palmer (Young Star Award) and Lionel Richie for his Lifetime Achievement.
