Students wanted a big musical act to come to campus and Centre's Student Activities Council delivered. Ben Folds, singer and pianist, will be performing May 7 at Centre's Norton Center for the Arts.
Famous for songs such as "Brick," "The Battle of Who Could Care Less" and "Fair," Folds will visit the College as part of his solo tour.
"I've never found anyone that I like more than Ben Folds," says sophomore J.P. Isele from Hopkinsville. "Even though some of today's more mainstream bands feature a piano, Ben Folds has mastered the art."
Folds came to prominence in 1993 with the group Ben Folds Five. Ben Folds Five's 1997 album Whatever & Ever Amen won platinum status and made it alternative-rock and college radio favorites.
