Charlotte North Carolina’s Last Night in White was a breathtaking experience for music lovers.
As the Turn Up Kings turned up, you could feel the air grow warmer and thicker. This group comprised of Mr. Wood$, Kyrk, Jus K, and Big Bronze had literally warmed up the crowd.
Jus K professed his love in song and Mr. Wood$ gave us a peek in to his Woods Wear Fashion line as he rocked a white tee with his signature wings and told us all not to sweat the haters because sometimes it “Beez Like That.”
Next, came the force I wasn’t prepared for in the form of Mr. Rudy Currence. This PK (preacher’s kid) has taken the soulful sounds from his spiritual background and done wondrous things. I don’t know if I was most amazed by the piano playing or the old school crooning laced with something new and almost electric.
While he sent the crowd soaring with his performance, he was nothing short of approachable and down to earth despite his very impressive resume that includes several ASCAP awards, having a song featured in The Bourne Identity, and even being signed to Ludacris’s DTP records at one time.
Then a raspy voice came over the sound system and the room let out a shout as Lyfe Jennings began his set. His laid back demeanor quickly moved the audience into a space that seemed so familiar.
He used life lessons and anecdotes to keep the audience mesmerized as they patiently awaited the songs that made them love the scratchy voiced phenom.
Keyshia Cole closed the evening with a few songs that had the crowd rocking. She ended the evening with an acapella rendition of “Love” and it was a good end to a great night.
