Celebrated Recording Artist, Andra Day, Launches Contest with Hilton Worldwide All Suites Brands to Encourage Fans to “Rise Up”

Hilton Worldwide (NYSE: HLT) announced today that its All Suites brands – Embassy Suites by Hilton, Homewood Suites by Hilton and Home2 Suites by Hilton – have joined forces with award-nominated singer and songwriter, Andra Day, asking fans to share their #RiseUpRitual. Now through February 20, 2016, fans are encouraged to share photos of their morning rituals for a chance to win the “Rise Up with Andra Day” contest.

Inspired by Day’s hit song, “Rise Up,” the contest will award nine grand prize winners two night’s hotel accommodation for two people, tickets to one of her concerts, plus the opportunity to meet Day at an intimate breakfast at a Hilton Worldwide All Suites hotel in one of three cities: Houston, Chicago or Washington, DC.

“It’s not every day I get to speak one-on-one with my fans in an intimate setting and chat about what inspires them to wake and rise up,” said Day. “I had an incredible experience singing on the Homewood Suites by Hilton float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade last year, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Hilton Worldwide again. I’m looking forward to celebrating the remarkable daily morning rituals of people from around the country.”

“Partnering with Andra Day to inspire our guests to “Rise Up” and share their #RiseUpRitual is a natural fit for our All Suites brands,” said Bill Duncan, global head, All Suites Brands for Hilton Worldwide. “Our guests consider us their home away from home, and many of them start their day with our complimentary breakfast as part of their own morning rituals. This partnership is just one of the many ways we strive to deliver exceptional, memorable experiences for our guests and encourage them to connect with the world around them.”

Hilton Worldwide is the official hotel sponsor for Day’s US tour, which will hit 17 cities nationwide, beginning February 29, 2016.

Fans can enter to win by posting a photo showing their morning ritual on Twitter. Each photo must be accompanied by a Tweet using the following hashtags: #RiseUpRitual and one of the three meet & greet tour stops: #Houston, #Chicago, or #DC. Entrants must follow @AndraDayMusic and one of the three All Suites brands: @EmbassySuites, @HomewoodSuites, or @Home2Suites, for valid entry. All entries must be received by 11:59pm EST on February 20, 2016 for consideration.

Each grand prize winner will receive a one night’s hotel accommodations for two people, an invitation for both guests to a private breakfast meet & greet with Day and two tickets to Day’s concert. The accommodations are as follows: Home2 Suites by Hilton Houston/Katy (March 5-6, 2016), Homewood Suites by Hilton Chicago-Downtown (March 14-15, 2016) or Embassy Suites by Hilton Washington, DC Convention Center (March 20-21, 2016).
