Sabrina Carpenter was born in the Lehigh Valley in 1999. She began her acting career in 2010 with a guest appearance on “Law & Order: SVU.” She is best known for her role as the best friend of Rowan Blanchard on Disney Channel’s “Girl Meets World,” the sequel to 1990s sitcom “Boy Meets World.” In 2014, she landed a deal with Hollywood Records, and her debut single, “Can’t Blame a Girl for Trying,” was released in March of that year. She has since released two full-length albums, “Eyes Wide Open” and “Evolution.” Her upcoming studio album, “Singular,” will be released on Nov. 9.

PrettyMuch is an American/Canadian pop boy band formed by Simon Cowell in 2016. The group gained attention on social media in 2017 with their cover songs and dance videos. Their debut single, “Would You Mind,” was released in 2017 and peaked in the Top 40 on Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40 charts. They released their debut EP, “PrettyMuch an EP,” on April 19, and their new summer single, “Summer on You,” written by Ed Sheeran, was released in June.

Formed in 2016, lovelytheband is a Los Angeles indie pop band that topped the Billboard Emerging Artists chart in October. Their single “Broken” quickly earned over three million streams on Spotify and charted on several Billboard charts.

They performed at the Scranton Iron Furnaces in July.
