Opening acts on tour sometimes suffer from the fact that crowds are visibly distracted during their sets, often times arriving late and chit-chatting with their friends as the artist tries to do their thing. This most certainly was NOT the case for last week’s show at the Beacon Theater here in New York City that featured Chrisette Michele and Keyshia Cole performing together. Both are fully capable of being headline performers, and the crowd definitely treated each artist as such when they performed together on Thursday night.
Guess bad news is good news. Chrisette Michele recently went to the top of the charts with her new disc, Epiphany, even though the CD’s songs are all about a particularly heart wrenching breakup. Stylistically, the young soul singer is ultra impressive, bringing a variety of approaches to the tunes on the record. Some are sweaty, some are wispy, a couple feel like a kick in the gut. Without question, she sees R&B from a number of perspectives.
We’ve been documenting Chrisette’s gorgeous rasp and passionate performances for awhile now. Check out the way she recently glided through our “SoulStage” presentation, and watch her get intimate with her tunes during one of our Unplugged shows.
