Fordham Dance Marathon (FDM) announced the lineup for their annual fundraising event on Monday, March 3 at their weekly committee meeting.

Representatives confimed that Logan Henderson will be performing as the headliner, with Maude Latour opening for him at FDM this Saturday, March 7. All donations will benefit the Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation.

Henderson and Latour will be joined by a diverse collection of student-led and independent bands, all represented by Quadio. Performers will include Hot Notes, Doov and the Fordham University acapella group the B Sides.

Early in his career, Henderson starred in the Nickelodeon series “Big Time Rush” in the role of Logan Mitchell. The show told the story of a Minnesota-based boy band and their adventures on the course of attempting to become famous and move to California.

As of today, Henderson is a solo pop artist based out of Los Angeles. His music career is flourishing, with his two top hits on Spotify being “Pull Me Deep” and “Sleepwalker,” which each have been played more than two million times.

Rebecca Besada, GSB ’20, said she was excited about getting Henderson to perform because of his name recognition from his acting days.

“We wanted to go for someone that everyone would recognize since we wanted to bring as many people to the event for fundraising purposes,” she said. “Since everyone grew up on Nickelodeon we thought it was a good fit.”

Latour is a sophomore at Columbia University who recently released an EP called “Starsick,” which has over four million streams on Spotify.
