iHeartRadio 2016 Tribute Video Wins Fans Over on Social Media

2016 will be remembered as the year we lost many iconic figures— including David Bowie, Prince, George Michael, Debbie Reynolds, Carrie Fisher, and more. To celebrate the lives of these artists and celebrities, our team here at iHeartRadio created a video montage to the tune of “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go” by George Michaels’ first band, Wham!

The lively and upbeat video clearly resonated with both music-lovers and pop culture enthusiasts alike, making iHeartRadio the first AdAge social MVP of the year. The video on Facebook went viral with over 22 Million views and 500,000 social shares. In addition, iHeartRadio held the top spot on Twitter when we urged Justin Bieber fans to vote for him in the iHeartRadio Music Awards #FanArmy category.

The fourth annual iHeartRadio Music Awards will take place Sunday, March 5 at The Forum in Los Angeles. You can witness music history at the fan-fueled awards show with an exclusive Chase Cardholder Pre-sale here, or pick up your tickets as soon as they go on sale on Saturday, January 7 at 1:00 p.m. ET, and continue to honor the legendary artists you love by tuning in today to iHeartRadio!​​​​​​​
