MCLEAN, Va. - 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.

"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.

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.
