SINGAPORE - American singer Nick Jonas will perform on the second day of Hyperplay, an Asean music and eSports festival that will take place on Aug 4 and 5 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

He made his name as one-third of successful sibling pop trio Jonas Brothers (2005 to 2013), and released his self-titled solo debut album in 2014. He is also known as an actor who has starred in movies such as adventure-comedy Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (2017) and television series like drama Kingdom (2014 to 2017).
