KYGO, the internationally-known musician, producer, songwriter, DJ and pop phenomenon that I am sure you are all familiar with at this point, will perform his infectious song “Carry Me” with guest vocalist Julia Michaels at the Closing Ceremony of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. This will air on live TV on Sunday August 21st, at 6PM CST/7PM EST at Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. The Norwegian superstar, the Olympic Channel and Sony Music Entertainment recently announced a content collaboration to promote the upcoming launch of the new worldwide digital platform.
“The opportunity to be a part of the Closing Ceremony of the Olympic Games in Rio is a huge milestone in my career and it will be the biggest performance of my life,”
“I’ve been a sports fan since forever, and to be able to combine this with my music and help to launch something like the Olympic Channel is a dream come true!”
The Olympic Channel digital platform will be available worldwide via a mobile app for Android and iOS devices and at olympicchannel.com following the closing ceremony. The goal of this platform is to engage younger generations, fans and new audiences in the Olympic Movement. This will be a free platform that will present original programming, live sports events, news and highlights offering additional exposure for sports and athletes all year round. This is exciting to me personally because the Olympics only happens every 2 years and I would love to watch these sporting events more.
