Damn, Halsey. After scoring her first No. 1 single, the Chainsmokers collaboration "Closer," the about-to-turn-22-year-old New Jersey singer has shot to a new, unexpected place. This December in Oslo, Norway, Halsey will perform at the 23rd annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert. The event is held in celebration of that year's prize winner.
Billboard broke the news, adding that the lineup's only other performers on the bill at this point Norwegian rockers Highasakite.
Norwegian Nobel Institute director Olav Njølstad tells Billboard:
“Through her music, [Halsey] will be helping share the message of peace to a global audience. Not only will those in attendance be able to watch an electrifying performance, but fans across the world will be able to stream the special event on YouTube.”
Since its 1994 inception, the Nobel Peace Prize Concert has featured talent like Destiny's Child, Jennifer Lopez, Janelle Monáe, Mary J. Blige, Ellie Goulding, Melissa Etheridge, Alanis Morissette, Jewel, Mariah Carey, Shania Twain, Bon Jovi, Elton John and Boyz II Men. Last year's concert, honoring the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet, included Jason Derulo, a-ha, Kygo and MØ.
