Global Superstar WILL.I.AM Meets Summer Dance Winners and Performs in Front of 4,000 EF Students
American superstar will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas performed his hit songs at the annual EF Summeranza party yesterday to a crowd of more than 4,000 EF language students. As the party's headlining performer, he also congratulated the winners of the EF Summer Dance competition, who had choreographed a dance routine to his chart-topping single, "Nothing Really Matters".
Earlier this summer, "Nothing Really Matters” was named EF’s official Summer Song 2012 and students entered the Summer Dance competition for the chance to meet will.i.am and perform at the event. The winning team's choreography was voted on by people from around the world and their dance moves were watched by over 5,500 people on www.ef.com/summerdance.
Will.i.am met the winning team Force Out, five friends from Russia, before giving the private concert to EF students studying in the UK. The exclusive concert took place at London’s Kempton Park where language students from around the world met for a full day of fun and celebration. The event reached its peak when the entire crowd began dancing in unison to “Nothing Really Matters”.
"We can't believe we got to meet will.i.am and perform our dance in front of this huge crowd," said Force Out, who had been preparing for many weeks. "It was incredible to see so many people dancing along and definitely something we will remember."
In addition to preparing students with top-rated language learning courses, EF International Language Centers offer a full array of activities and events, highlighted by the annual Summeranza megaparty.
"We are thrilled to have will.i.am here to perform the EF Summer Song in front of our students since he’s such an idol to many of them" said Mauro Cuervo, President of EF Language Travel. "The Summeranza student party is a great opportunity to show that language learning abroad goes far beyond traditional classroom learning. Our students actually live the language – and have the summer of their lives, too."
The excitement of this unforgettable experience remained on the glowing faces of the students as they boarded buses back to their EF course towns across the United Kingdom.
