The industry was thick as last night’s ATL Live on the Park monthly music showcase witnessed history in the making. Band mates Teddy Riley, Lenny Harold, Dave Hollister, Chauncey Black, and Tony Tyler re-united to perform some of their biggest hits from the 1990’s New Jack Swing era including “Before I Let You Go”, “No Diggity” and “Don’t Leave Me”. Before Blackstreet’s high-energy performance, Teddy Riley honored the crowd by performing some of his biggest hits he created for platinum-selling artists including Michael Jackson’s “Remember the Time”, Guy’s “Let’s Chill”, Bobby Brown’s “My Prerogative” and more.

Credited for the creation of the New Jack Swing era, Teddy Riley received the Icon Award from Devyne Stephens and his foundation Devyne Intervention, for his commitment to the entertainment community.

 

Ceasar Mitchell, President of Atlanta’s City Council also presented Riley with a proclamation from Atlanta for his contributions to the city and the music industry.

 

Guests also enjoyed sneak performances by American actor, singer, comedian and television personality Wayne Brady. The Georgia native returned to his home state to perform new music from his untitled album scheduled for release February 2013.

ASCAP and Devyne Stephen’s newest label, UM3G also presented performances by new artists Mishon, Amber Bullock, Brittnee Camelle, Saint Nick and Marques Anthony.

Lifestyle specialist, Kenny Burns pumped the crowd as DJ Trauma and the Teddy White Band kept the crowd on their feet. Last night’s performances proved why ATL Live on the Park is considered the city’s most anticipated music showcase.
