Model and recording artist Nick Hissom debuted his much-anticipated new single, “Killin’ Tonight,” at Tryst Nightclub at Wynn Las Vegas, featuring a performance with electronic dance music deejay duo Manufactured Superstars, the DJs/producers behind the smash hit “Take Me Over” and Hissom’s new single.
Hissom’s mother Andrea Wynn and stepfather Steve Wynn watched from the front row, rooting the young star on inside the nightclub. Additional familiar faces surfaced in the crowd as socialite Paris Hilton and her father Rick Hilton came to cheer Hissom on, sitting at a table just off the dance floor. After the performance, Hilton and Hissom 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 Hissom as he came off stage and gave him props for his first live show.
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.
“Being able to perform tonight at Tryst on Memorial Day weekend was an incredible rush,” Hissom said. “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!”
