Opening Act™ Competition Winner Opens for Coldplay, Maroon 5 and Doja Cat

Young in a Million rocked Audacy's We Can Survive Concert

Young in a Million won the 2021 Opening Act Competition, which allowed them to play in front of thousands of fans during Audacy's We Can Survive concert at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, October 23, 2021.

The online voting competition gives musicians the opportunity to compete for a $10,000 cash prize and the opening slot at Audacy's annual benefit concert, opening for major recording artists. While previous winner, RAINNE, opened for Taylor Swift, Lizzo, Billie Eilish, and more, Young In A Million performed ahead of Maroon 5, Coldplay, The Black Eyed Peas, Saweetie, Doja Cat, The Kid Laroi, and Shawn Mendes.

"Exactly two years and eight months ago, we played our first Young in a Million show. It was in a small house in Nashville with 50 people. Tonight, we will be playing our first ARENA show with 17,500 people. It's also with our favorite band of all time, Coldplay," said Young In A Million before performing at the sold-out event.

The duo says their music is meant "to make you dream again, risk again, love again, and live again." With Alex's background in dance music and Kody's experience as a former hardcore singer, the pair managed to find a sweet spot in pop/rock with a message of hope and transformation. 

Opening Act, LLC will donate a portion of the net proceeds from this year's competition to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, an organization dedicated to saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide. AFSP is celebrating 30 years of service and has chapters in all 50 states.
