N.C. State’s own Carizma Thomas performed on the All-Star Edition of BET’s 106 and Park Wild Out Wednesday competition. Thomas, a senior majoring in Communication- Media walked away from the competition having racked up more than one thousand votes.
When she took to the 106 and Park stage on August15, Thomas did so in an N.C. State red blazer and a sparkly gold bustier, performing her single “Just Go.”
In support of Thomas, friends and fans organized a viewing party on the campus of N.C. State in the lounge of Bragaw Hall. There they ate pizza and voted for Thomas with the 106 and Park interactive app.
Thomas, a 21-year-old native of Queens, N.Y. has performed once before on the 106 and Park stage, previously winning the Wild Out Wednesday competition. While Thomas has always had a love for music, she did not begin pursuing music as her passion until the eighth grade, when she took a trip to the recording studio with her brother.
Ironically enough, when the Carolina based rapper takes to the stage her ‘carizma’ and personality instantly shine through. In regards to her music career, Thomas said, “I don’t want to be a one-hit wonder. I want to be one of the greats. I want to be a legend. I don’t want to be forgotten.”
