A new annual concert series at Bradley University is starting with a bang. Or three of them, perhaps.

Rapper T-Pain and singers Jesse McCartney and Andy Grammer are headlining the first "Recess," presented by the Activities Council of Bradley University.

The three are to appear for a show that is to begin at 7 p.m. April 6 at Renaissance Coliseum on the Bradley campus in Peoria.

T-Pain, whose real name is Faheem Rashad Najm, has won two Grammy Awards. He's known for his hit songs "I'm Sprung," "I'm 'n Luv (Wit a Stripper)" and "Bartender," among others.

In 2007, T-Pain's second album, "Epiphany," reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Between 2006 and 2010, he was featured on more than 50 chart-topping singles.

Grammer is famed for hit singles "Keep Your Head Up" and "Honey, I'm Good," which has been certified triple-platinum and was among the top 10 best-selling songs of 2015.

McCartney once was a member of the boy band Dream Street and also was an actor on the television soap opera "All My Children." As a solo singer, his hits include "Beautiful Soul" and "Leavin'."

Each entertainer is to perform for an hour, according to an ACBU news release. McCartney, Grammer and T-Pain are to appear on stage in that order.
