This past Sunday (June 22nd), I had the opportunity to attend the “Art of Love” tour featuring Chrisette Michele and Raheem DeVaughn live from inside Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason center. The show started around 8PM and opened with Solange, she did about 3 or 4 songs from her forthcoming album, Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams. Her performance was very Supreme era with a lot of attitude, “I feel good, I look good, but I broke my Goddamn toe!” exclaimed the soulful singer. If I had not already known about Solange breaking her toe (prior to that remark) I probably would have been shocked; she held her composer extremely well. I cannot remember but two songs I think I liked; they were “I Decided,” which was a song written by Pharrell Williams and Solange herself, and “T.O.N.Y.” an acronymic song Solange said meant “The Other Night Y”. Unfortunately, I did not get the chance to meet Solange or interview her, but overall my experience with the show was fun! Also, Chrisette did an amazing job and was simply beautiful. Meanwhile, Raheem, by the way congrats on the BET J Award, commanded the stage! He had a painter in the background, Raheem was on the floor singing and crawling, running around the building — it was a performance. Raheem will really give your money’s worth.
