KELSEA BALLERINI, ALESSIA CARA AND JORDAN FISHER TO PERFORM AT THE 2017 RADIO DISNEY MUSIC AWARDS

Grammy Award-nominee Kelsea Ballerini, multiplatinum recording artist Alessia Cara, and Broadway's "Hamilton" star and Hollywood Records recording artist Jordan Fisher are scheduled to perform at the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards (RDMA), music's biggest event for families, on SATURDAY, APRIL 29, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The three added performers are alumni of Radio Disney's "NBT" (Next Big Thing) program that champions young recording artists and showcases their personal journey as they pursue their musical dreams. Ballerini and Fisher are also two of the five hosts named for the fifth anniversary show.

Kelsea Ballerini? is the only female artist in country music history, including female duos and groups, to reach #1 with her first three consecutive singles from a debut album. Her current single "Yeah Boy" is Top 10 and climbing at Country Radio, has been playing on Radio Disney and Radio Disney Country since September, and has spent five weeks on the Radio Disney Top 30. Her now gold-certified debut album "The First Time" includes the platinum hits "Love Me Like You Mean It" and "Peter Pan," and gold-certified "Dibs." Ballerini made her first RDMA appearance during the pre-show festival in 2015. At the 2016 RDMA, she performed a mash-up of the hit singles "Peter Pan" and "Hide Away" with Daya, and won an "ARDY" for "The Freshest - Best New Artist." Ballerini received a Grammy Award nomination this year for "Best New Artist," and is nominated for this year's RDMA in four categories, including "The Bestest! - Radio Disney Country Favorite Artist" and "Play It Again! - Radio Disney Country Favorite Song."?????

Fresh off her second #1 pop smash "Scars to Your Beautiful" and triumphant breakout performance on "Saturday Night Live," Def Jam recording artist Alessia Cara has emerged as one of the most powerful, authentic young voices in music today. From her multiplatinum breakout single "Here," to chart-topping smashes "Wild Things" and "Scars," Alessia's message-driven anthems and incredible live performances have propelled her debut album "Know-It-All" to gold status. In 2016, Cara opened for Coldplay in the European and North American legs of their A Head Full of Dreams Tour. Cara recently sang "How Far I'll Go" on the soundtrack for Disney's Academy Award-nominated "Moana," and is nominated for "The Buzz- Breakout Artist of the Year" at the 2017 RDMA.

Jordan Fisher is a Hollywood Records recording artist and recently starred on Broadway in the Tony award-winning production "Hamilton." The "NBT" alumnus starred in the Emmy Award-winning production of Fox's "Grease: Live" and the Disney Channel Original Movies "Teen Beach Movie" and "Teen Beach 2." He was a presenter at the 2016 RDMA and released his self-titled EP, featuring the hit song "All About Us," in summer 2016. Fisher also sang on the soundtrack for "Moana" in the end-credit version of "You're Welcome" featuring Lin-Manuel Miranda. This year, Fisher is nominated for a 2017 RDMA for "The Freshest - Best New Artist."

Voting for the 2017 RDMA is open now through Sunday, April 9, at Disney.com/RDMA, the Radio Disney and Disney Channel apps, Google OneBox, and via Radio Disney's Facebook and Twitter. Tickets for the RDMA are on sale now at AXS.com/RDMA.
