The 32-year-old Flo Rida—aka Tramar Dillard from Carol City, Fla.—hit No. 1 for 10 weeks in early 2008 with his debut single “Low” featuring T-Pain. The rapper and singer-songwriter’s latest chart-topper, “Whistle,” sits near the top of the iTunes and Billboard Hot 100 singles charts, with global digital sales surpassing 4 million.

As for his embrace of electronic and dance music, Flo Rida says he grew up listening to all kinds of music, including the church songs his seven sisters sang in a local gospel group. “I like to take music from everywhere and put it in my style and let it be accepted,” he told MTV.com.

The Flo Rida performance serves as this year’s Fall Concert, hosted by the Division of Student Affairs.

UT Arlington students are eligible for a $15 discount on one ticket each for online sales only. Other tickets range from $35-$80 and are available at utatickets.com.
