There was an explosive vocal showdown last week in Atlanta when R&B heavy-hitters Tank, Case and K. Michelle showcased their talents for an intimate audience of music lovers at ATL Live on the Park. Each headliner shared their lastest hits and revisited some good oldies. From jumping on speakers (Case) to sharing her rendition of Mary J’s “I’m Going Down” (K. Michelle) and to singing, at times, without the assistance of a single musical note (Tank), the experience was like none other.
As the crowd rocked to the beats, the drinks and great-tasting food continued to flow. The night was filled with surprise guests as Keri Hilson, Floyd Mayweather, Jagged Edge, Chilli of TLC, Mishon, Dondria, R.L. of Next and cast members of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, including K. Michelle and Stevie J, attended the event, which provided live taping of a show set to premiere on June 18th.
It seems Atlanta is producing events that will assist in keeping R&B music alive and relevant. Hats of to music executives and the creators of ATL Live on the Park, Shanti Das and Marlon Nichols for an extraordinary event. Check out the live performances below:
