Singer Valentino Mitaj Sponsors Billboard Music Awards Programs

International recording artist Valentino Mitaj is an official sponsor of the Billboard Music Awards programs for the show, which airs May 21 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

Mitaj built a name for himself as a performer in his native Albania, and recently debuted his American EP that includes five songs and is available to listen to and download via SoundCloud.

His music is a unique blend of pop, dance and poetry, with a nod toward his Albanian roots. After achieving a level of celebrity in Albania, Mitaj realized his dream of coming to America. He lives in Detroit and has operated a successful restaurant for a decade to support his musical aspirations. Now he wants to fully commit to launching a successful music career in the United States.

FX Group in Tampa is working with Mitaj on promotions, marketing and advertising. The agency will connect Mitaj with music industry representatives at the Billboard Awards. Mitaj will attend the awards and several after-parties to meet members of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
