It was definitely a phenomenal event held at SOBs on October 13th which celebrated women of color in a showcase with several acts from various genres of music. The first act of the night was Be’la Dona, an all female band that brought the house down with their rendition of songs by popular artists. If you were in the building that night, you would have enjoyed performances by Lil’ Mama, Rah Digga, Melanie Fiona and Estelle, all of whom showed why they rock with their amazing stage presence and vocals.

If you weren’t at SOBs last night you missed an amazing show! Our acts included Leila, Dallas Lewis, Kwamie Liv and our headliner, Allen Stone. Words cannot express the intensity and emotion I felt during Allen Stone’s set but simply enough, this guy gave me chills. One of my favorite songs he performed was his Bob Marley cover of “Is This Love,” I have to say this song is what captured the crowd. If you’re not familiar with him or any of the artist mentioned above, please look them up, you won’t be disappointed!
