R&B singer/songwriter Jhené Aiko to perform at RamFest Aug. 24

Grammy-nominated R&B singer-songwriter Jhené Aiko, who recently surpassed 1 billion streams on Pandora Music, will be the headlining act of RamFest, Colorado State University’s annual large-scale fall event. This year, it will take place in Moby Arena on the CSU campus, with doors opening at 5 p.m. on Aug. 24.

In 2011, Jhené Aiko debuted with the release of Sailing Souls, featuring Kanye West, Drake, Gucci Mane and Miguel. A Grammy nomination, albums and many hit singles later, she continues to shine as one of the most influential and engaging stars in R&B.
