My kids are now at an age where they get excited to see their favorite stars on TV. Just this year my kids started watching “real” shows… as in real people vs cartoons. “Girl Meets World” is one of their favorite shows… so they were excited to hear that Hollywood Records recording artist Sabrina Carpenter was scheduled to perform at the 2016 Radio Disney Music Awards (RDMA)! I have a feeling that my kids will be wanting to stay up past their bedtime on Sunday, May 1!
Carpenter joins previously announced artists including Ariana Grande, DNCE, Flo Rida, Hailee Steinfeld, Zara Larsson, Daya, Laura Marano, Sofia Carson, Kelsea Ballerini and Jordan Smith on SATURDAY, APRIL 30 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
