LOS ANGELES, March 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Top 40 pop artist TINO COURY performed at actress Eva Longoria's birthday party this past Friday night (March 18) in Las Vegas, where the "Desperate Housewives" actress celebrated at her nightclub Eve. The Los Angeles-based 22-year-old singer-songwriter-producer and multi-instrumentalist performed (at the invitation of Longoria) his pulsating new single "Up Against The Wall"--the follow-up to his 2010 Top 40 and #11 Billboard Hot Dance Club hit "Diary"--and offered an endearing "Happy Birthday" serenade to Eva. Friends and family joined in for birthday cake including Mario Lopez, Courtney Mazza, David Spade, Josh Strickland, DJ Sky Nellor, Anthony Cools, Nathan Burton, and Jabbawockeez.
"As I have grown to know Eva, I've learned that she is a truly amazing person, beautiful inside and out," shared TINO. "It was an honor to perform for her on her birthday."
TINO digitally released his new 6-song EP PAGE ONE via ELEVENTH RECORDS on February 22. It will be followed by his full-length debut album due out late summer, also on ELEVENTH RECORDS (distributed via Universal's Fontana). The rhythmically propulsive "Up Against The Wall" was just added to Sirius's BPM, a leading dance station in the U.S. TINO produced the song himself, working with Grammy-winning mixer Manny Marroquin (Usher, Alicia Keys).

2010 was a break-out year for TINO and 2011 finds him running full-steam ahead. TINO has earned fans all over the country by performing on national and local TV and appearing at concerts with Jason Derulo (at the sold-out The Fillmore New York at Irving Plaza), Drake, Train, Iyaz, New Boyz, Mike Posner, Kelly Rowland, Kris Allen, and The Backstreet Boys, among many others. TINO recently performed as part of Los Angeles' #1 hit music station 102.7 KIIS FM's 2010 Jingle Ball Village in L.A. LIVE where later that night Katy Perry, Nelly, B.o.B., Far East Movement and Bruno Mars, among others, took the stage.
