Hosting the night was a challenge, alongside organising everything else that came with it, but we managed to pull it off & I couldn't have done it without the sound guys Demetrious & BJ & D-lo.
Shout out to D-lo for asking me in the first place to jump on board with his event here.
I HAVE TO SAY ON BEHALF OF THE TEAM A HUGE THANK YOU TO THE AMAZING PERFORMERS:
Edward O Micah - it's never easy going first but this dude has amazing tone & voice & he opened the show amazingly with his John Legend cover.
Lilas Le Fleur - Loving her flavour she brought to the stage and her over all vibe and energy, her meaning in her songs. Check her out. She uses her art to help raise awareness for charities also which is what it's all about! love and respect lady.
Kemelia Tebb brought some arab music to the stage which for me was SICK and so original!! bring your ROOTS to the stage people!! don't copy be original!!!
Christina Blue as young as 19, came all the way down from Liverpool, her voice is special and I believe she is going to do well in the scene.
Debbie Aramide loved her song about "When the curtain falls down are you still smiling" how everyone is fame hungry with fake smiles i liked her message and she has a beautiful voice SAAAAANGG GIRLLLL wow.
Nathan Zion & Alec Crafter brought my favourite cover song to the table "Bruno Mars Grenade" TUNE and Jessie J "Do it like a dude---mans version"!! and they sung a lovely original, they are ones to watch, great energy, nice stage presence and hope to see them again.
The Commission - 4 boys singing hip hop from Liverpool. I enjoyed them a lot. My mum i could even see her smiling!!!! :-) nice work boys check them out.
Klash Gabriel, each rap artist was SO different and I liked Klash for his message and his vibe too. When they are live they are all so unique. I enjoyed his performance.
Leslie Black singing about the soldier ting!! love Leslie, positive all over and amazing lady. BIG UPP. real artist. right there.
Try Stevens -- sick. loved him. comedian slash producer slash REAL LYRICS. and real performer.
Project G these ladies brought SUCH an amazing set to the table and it was SOO nice to have dancers there.....they had a variety of styles and they nailed them ALL!!! RESPECT TO YOU.
The Waacktitioners --I can't be too biased here as this is my group but the feedback was very nice and the 70s waacks and funks/leather and lace seemed to go down well ;p well done my girls.
Miggy - all i can say is SICK. SOO creative with his medley of songs, his voice. The audience actually participated and loved him. This dude is so on point and a pleasure to work with. One to watch.
Paul Jukeboxx - graced the stage so confidently and I loved again his vibe and his words. He's REAL CHUUCH.
Phoenix Martins I know the combination of the keys I played and her voice and PRESENCE mesmorised the entire place coz everyone went silent :-) NUFF SAID. She brought her ROOTS and HEART to the stage. Check her out on youtube singing "Marigold" and yes that covers was about London town!! brap brap.
Bianca Simmone - this girl is all about the PLACE!! Modelling in Birmingham then coming to sing on the stage!!! BOE!!!!!! "PRESSURE" check out her video.. more songs coming form her later this year. she werked it.
Jake Emlyn - Jake makes me laugh, the boy doesn't even need to try and the talent just ozzes out of him "SHALL I SING A DEPRESSING SONG OR A FUNNY SONG, OKAY ILL SING A SONG CALLED JOHN LENNON STOLE MY GIRLFRIEND"!!!!! Jake you smashed it again.
Chloe --- what a hot mami... It was lovely to hear feedback on the song "What I'll Be" some girls were saying that was there TUNE of the night....her vocals were on point, i'm proud of Chloe.
JFX Music -- these boys are amazing performers and know how to work the crowd i loved them and expect big thing's from them. You get the Tinie Tempahs but they are not bringing what these boys have.
J Marie Cooper.-- Kylie Minogue was right in saying "Why is this girl not signed".... don't worry Kylie she's going to be really soon. SMASHED your songs and how nice to end on "Warrior Woman" and leave a positive note to the PEOPLE.!!!
So that was a brief, off the top of my head summary of the night... everyone was amazing, ALL the acts deserved to be there.
MORE NIGHTS TO COME. THE MUSIC/DANCE/ARTS SCENE LOVES A BIT OF REAL TALENT AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE IS SEEN/HEARD AND APPRECIATED.
I can happily say everyone there was dope. :-)
I also want to say a Happy Birthday to my friends Kate Bond and Del Mak, it was nice going to their bdays after and celebrating the night at Shoreditch house raving it up in 6 inch heels (ouch) still fun. Enjoyed seeing Blie and Bruno Mars too.
