“IM5” is a five-member boy band co-founded in 2012 by Spice Girls and American Idol creator Simon Fuller, creative director Jamie King, and blogger and television personality Perez Hilton (http://perezhilton.com/
The band fuses pop and rhythm and blues melodies with vocal harmonies and dance routines. Members include Cole Pendery, 18, of Dallas, Texas; Will Jay Behlendork, 18, of Los Angeles; Gabriel Morales, 19, of Miami, FL; Dana Vaughns, 16, of Pittsburgh, PA; and David Scarzone, 18, of Chicago, Illinois.
“Everything About U,” the band’s first digitally released song, caught the attention of Radio Disney programming directors, who put the song in rotation lasting the year. The band has headlined multiple Radio Disney Live events and was recently nominated for a Radio Disney Music Award for Ultimate Breakout Star.
Five other artists are scheduled to perform. Among them include Texas natives Branden Mendoza (http://www.brandenmendoza.com/

"The mission behind our tour is to educate and combat bullying in schools,” said AllStar Nation Tour founder Dillon Smith. “By joining forces with the Stand Up Tour, we can deliver the next big thing in music, such as IM5, to an already impressive line-up.”
After the Michigan concert, the tour is scheduled to visit more than 100 schools and public venues in 30 districts throughout Texas from September through the end of 2014 before heading to Florida in early 2015. Performance assemblies are free to schools.
