Chris Breezy

V103 Atlanta’s Winterfest definitely did not disappoint! What do you think happens when you put Yo Gotti, Chris Brown, Jeezy, Trey Songz on the bill for a concert? You get a sold out Phillips Arena! The night wouldn’t have been complete without special guests K Camp, Bone Crusher, Drolo Polo aka Young Dro, Rich Homie Quan, Dej Loaf, Jacquees, and the Ying Yang Twins.

Jacquees

Bone Crusher set the tone that this was going to be a classic ATL night. Followed up by the Ying Yang Twins. The audience went buck wild! Jacquees brought out Dej Loaf, and K Camp made everyone turn up with “Cut her Off. Yo Gotti all clad in white came with that heat performance and contined the turn up with DM  and break it up .

Trey Songz

Ryan Cameron and Aunt Edith gave away over $10,000 to guests in attendance via the GA Lottery. Trey Songz made a red head young lady from the audience very excited bringing her on the stage for her 23rd birthday! There was just surprise after surprise. Trey Songz literally almost performed all his greatest hits from Bottoms Up, Say Aah, Can’t Help but Wait, Girl Tonite just to name a few.

Jeezy

Jeezy ended the night with his street team parading the arena with signs promoting his new album “Pressure”, snow flakes falling from the sky  and dropping hit after hit after hit after hit for everyone who was born in the ATL and stayed loyal from day oneand then brought up up to date with hits from his new album.`

Oh what a joy Que Parker & his wonderful talented celebrity singing friends were able to bring to these Senior Citizens.Throughout the night Que Parker did give thanks to several organizations and people who made the night possible. He never forgets to thank those that constantly support he and his wife’s endeavors to create these amazing events for the brothers, for the single women, for couples and he saw what was missing; supporting the elderly and senior citizens who are not able to get around and do the things they did in younger years.

This was such a kind gesture and it was a great opportunity to support upcoming new groups like Glamour, who did a marvelous acapella singing a Christmas song dear to their heart. This was a group formerly introduced to us by Kandi Burruss. The two singers from Black Nativity made my big toe curl up in my boots! I can’t remember when I have ever heard sanging like that. Oh what a night. Check out the photo gallery and the video of the sanging is coming soon. Yes I know it’s sing but they were sanging last night!!!

Dora Whitley & hubby, Ray Lavendar! What up Ray!

She recently received the city of Atlanta “Proclamation” which means the city honored her own “Stephanie Mills Day!” We recently spoke with Ms.Mills about her newest projects. She stated that she’s preparing for Broadway for next year and has also sung the hook for the song titled “Dreamin” on Fat Joe and Remy Ma’s debut album “Plata O Plomo.” As far as new music, Ms Mills says that she is indeed making new music but taking her time to make sure it’s right before she releases it. Here is a clip from last night’s performance !  We salute you and it was such a pleasure speaking with Ms Mills. Your down to earth spirit and genuine heart will forever be remembered.
