JUST ANNOUNCED: Mindless Behavior and the OMG GIRLZ with special guest Hi-RiZ

JUST ANNOUNCED: Mindless Behavior and the OMG GIRLZ with special guest Hi-RiZ come to Miller Auditorium on Thurs., April 17 at 7 p.m. Tickets range from $30.50-$40.50 and are on sale now.

MINDLESS BEHAVIOR male teen quartet (Prodigy, Roc Royal, Ray Ray, and Princeton) stir up a frenzy on their "Shout Out Tour" with R&B grooves, pop hooks, and hip hop swag to screaming fans.  In the tradition of The Jackson Five, New Edition, and B2K, they are the new vanguard for pop.  Prodigy wields incredible dance and vocal skills.  Ray Ray studied under legendary L.A. battle dancer Tommy the Clown, while Roc Royal started to rap at eight years old.  Princeton started his career at the age of four, starring in commercials for Sketchers, McDonalds, Nike and also music videos.

Since their 2011 debut album "#1 Girl," the group boasts eye-catching 21st Century fashion and impressive dance moves.  Their first single "My Girl" (2010) was nominated for a 2011 "Viewer's Choice" BET Award.  The group has opened sold-out tours for Backstreet Boys and Justin Bieber.  "Mrs. Right" landed at #1 on BET's 106 and Park three weeks in a row and was the #1 most added song at Urban Radio.

The new teenage girl group OMG GIRLZ, made up of the talented and gorgeous high school students, Miss Star (Zonnique Pullins), Miss Beauty (Bahja Rodriguez) and Miss Baby Doll (Breaunna Womack), are proving they have one-of-a-kind sass, swag, intelligence, showmanship and talent as they spread their message of female empowerment.

Officially Miss Guided (OMG) is a play on words just as fun as each girl's colorful hairstyle.  OMG stands for young ladies AKA "Miss" that are "Guided" in positive ways, hence "Officially Miss Guided."  Their mission is to let girls know they can stand together as friends in positivity, true sisterhood and solidarity.  Star and Beauty are lifelong friends.  Star brings a cutesy, prissy element to the group.  She is the quiet, laidback one; however, she hits the stage with raw and exciting energy.  Beauty brings a strong, demanding, turn-your-head element to the Girlz.  She's a tough one but wrapped up inside is a feminine, cute, fun-loving prankster.  Baby Doll is the animated, over-the-top rapper who loves to dance, be athletic and look just as flirty as she is cute and edgy. Together the powerful female energy of the OMG GIRLZ is reminiscent of iconic girl groups TLC, The Spice Girls and Destiny's Child.

The OMG GIRLZ have been featured on both BET's "The Tiny & Toya Show," and VH1's "T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle," but it was the release of their first official single, "Gucci Thiss (Gucci That)," and their performance on the "SCREAM Tour," that gave their careers a jolt to nationwide attention.  Their first official video "Gucci This (Gucci That)" became an instant hit on the Top 10 list of BET's 106 and Park.

Special Guest HI-RIZ girl band with Bobi (Lakilah B. Thomas), Hip Hop (Victorya Langford), Ivana (Monique Ivana Colson), and Sedne (Sedne Leilani-Marnai) blend pop, rock, hip hop and soul music as the new girl group of Generation Next.  Hip Hop is MC and dancer with storytelling rhymes.  Sedne is a young sassy soul singer with pop appeal and a powerful voice.  Bobi's love for modeling and designing fashion shines through her singing of the finer things in life.  Ivana adds soul to the talented group.
