Hey LA readers, International Secret Agents (ISA) is coming back to Los Angeles. If you thought ISA Seattle and ISA SF were big, wait til you see ISA LA. The premiere Asian American event showcases rising young talent with headliners Interscope/CherryTree’s platinum selling recording group Far East Movement (FM) at Harry Bridges Memorial Park (formerly Queen Mary Events Park) on Saturday, October 1, 2011. Grammy nominated B.O.B. and platinum artist Sean Kingston will join FM at ISA this year performing at the all-day festival. This year’s event will offer extraordinary presentations in music, film, and dance, as well as workshops by non-profit charity 4C The Power.
“ISA has been a great platform to showcase an array of international artists and inspire the youth in communities through the concerts and working with 4CThePower. We aim to make it a fun, festival type of experience,” states Prohgress of Far East Movement. “Each year, the crowds and shows have been getting bigger. At the LA event this year we have B.O.B. and Sean Kingston performing along with Far East Movement. It’s going to be a fun day.”
With 4 sold out shows in the past two years between California and New York, ISA continues to expand and give international audiences a chance to connect with bright and talented young artists of the Internet Generation. Started in 2008, founders Far East Movement and Wong Fu Productions’ idea is now a reality recognized by thousands of young people from diverse races and cultures; their ISA LA and NY concerts each drew 3,000+ people last year.
YouTube sensations Ryan Higa (aka NigaHiga), behind the 2nd most subscribed YouTube channel of all time, along with the 9th most subscribed YouTube comedian Kevin Wu (aka Kev Jumba) and singer Cathy Nguyen will host the event that aims to inspire and empower both performers and spectators.
The show will include performances from America’s Best Dance Crew 2011 champions I.aM.mE, Sundance and Cannes filmmakers Wong Fu Productions, 7th most subscribed musician on YouTube, David Choi, and rising musical stars New Heights.
FM and Wong Fu Productions set out to make this grassroots movement not only an active participant in the international entertainment landscape, but also a helping hand for non-profits and community-based organizations. 4C the Power is one of those organizations, providing professional training to youth in the arts to increase academic engagement and high school graduation rates. ISA gives spectators a chance to engage with the arts and their community.
