As part of Good Morning America’s annual free Summer Concert Series, the multiplatinum international pop trend-setter will perform in Central Park on Friday July 3. It will be broadcast live on ABC’s Good Morning America that morning, so make sure to tune in.
The songs from No Place In Heaven continue drumming up considerable buzz. The first single “Talk About You” has drawn over 2 million VEVO views thus far and has been the most played record on BBC’s Radio 2 for two weeks in a row, while “Good Guys” has been featured by Huffington Post, Out, The Advocate and more. Meanwhile, the clip for “Last Party” remains a milestone for a few reasons. An ode to Queen frontman Freddie Mercury, renowned fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh directed the video—in addition to snapping the album cover photo—making for his first collaboration with a music artist.
Speaking of hit videos, MIKA’s viral clip for the gold-selling hit “Popular Song” feat. Ariana Grande just crossed the 100-million mark on YouTube/VEVO. It’s now his very first VEVO Certified video.
MIKA‘s music continues to bubble up throughout pop culture with multiple high-profile syncs this summer. “Lollipop” was utilized in the box office smash Pitch Perfect 2, while upcoming film Spy also boasts a hit song from the singer. Currently, he’s gracing the covers of both L’Uomo Vogue and Vanity Fair Italy too.
Outside of music, his influence continues to expand worldwide. MIKA has been a judge on the X Factor Italy and a coach on The Voice France after topping the charts in France with the release “Boum Boum Boum.” He’s also been tapped by watch innovator, Swatch, as a creative ambassador creating striking designs for the line. In addition, he’s collaborated with Italian fashion leader, Valentino, architecting suits with the creative directors for X Factor Italy.
