Tonight I had the time of my life rocking out to various artist at the 5th Annual One Music Fest! This was truly an event that shut Atlanta down! I had the opportunity to enjoy good food, drinks, and people while listening to voices of some of my favorite performers!
In the day time event goers had the pleasure of listening to the soulful and hypnotizing voices of Cody Chestnut, Bilal, Isaiah Rashad, Daley, Amel Larrieux, and Alice Smith. I really could not choose a favorite because they all did a great job; however, it was something about British singer Daley! He has only been on the scene for a couple of years, but he has won over so many hearts in that short period. Although I was in a trance when he performed “Time Traveler,” I truly enjoyed when he got on the keyboard. Daley admitted to the audience that he was still “new” to it and was slightly nervous.
Later on in the day, it was time for Jhene Aiko, Method Man and Redman, Kendrick Lamar, and Nas. The gorgeous Jhene Aiko did her thing as she performed pieces from her last and new album. However, the highlight of her performance was when she paid homage to the late Tupac Shakur! Of course, Method Man and Redman delivered, and the crowd could NOT wait for Kendrick Lamar’s performance. It has been about two years since he dropped his last album; the fans wanted to see if he still had it! Lamar’s energy on the stage was contagious! Lastly, it was Nas’ turn, a Hip-Hop legend from the 90’s! It has been about 20 years since he dropped his first album “Illmatic;” therefore, he had a lot to celebrate! He performed various songs from his albums and reminded us why we considered him a “lyrical genius!”
