Top model and recording artist, Nick Hissom, debuted his much anticipated new single, “Killin’ Tonight” at Tryst Nightclub, featuring a performance with electronic dance music DJ duo, Manufactured Superstars, the DJs/producers behind the smash hit “Take Me Over” and Hissom’s new single last night.
Nick’s mother, Andrea Wynn, and stepfather, Steve Wynn, watched from the front row, rooting the young star on inside the Wynn Las Vegas nightlife venue. Additional familiar faces surfaced in the crowd as socialite Paris Hilton and father, Rick Hilton, came to cheer Nick on, sitting at an exclusive table just off the dance floor.
After the performance Paris and Nick chatted about their musical journeys and posed for some photo opps. She later tweeted, “@NickHissom, congrats on an amazing performance tonight! So proud of you! Love your new song with @MF_Superstars!”
Lil Jon, who took over the DJ responsibilities following the performance, greeted Nick as he came off stage and gave him props for his first live show on stage.
The entire evening was also captured for a music video featuring behind-the-scenes look at the making of the single, directed by Kenny Ortega, the creative mind behind High School Musical and Michael Jackson’s This Is It concert tour.
Following the set, Nick said, “”Being able to perform tonight at Tryst on Memorial Day Weekend was an incredible rush. Filming a music video with Kenny Ortega, and recording a song with Manufactured Superstars are things which, quite honestly, I thought I’d never have time for due to my studies at the University of Pennsylvania… I guess life is full of surprises! I don’t know where the entertainment industry will take me, but I do know that I’m working hard, thankful to my team, and having the time of my life. I can’t wait for my next performance in New York this Wednesday!”
Hissom’s Las Vegas performance marks the first of many dates with Manufactured Superstars as they embark on a summer long tour across the U.S. and Europe at notable venues to promote the single. Hissom will perform next on May 30 at Gabrielle’s Angels Foundation Millennial Ball at LAVO NYC. Photo credit: David Becker/Getty Images
