Shanti Das and Marlon Nichols delivered one of the most memorable musical productions to ever take place at ATL Live on the Park. Brought to you by Gentleman Jack and Monster Products, the April edition of season four featured performances by members of New Power Generation (NPG); the legendary band known for touring with music icon Prince and 80’s R&B diva Cherrelle.
Hosted by Lifestyle Specialist Kenny Burns, Members of New Power Generation and Cherrelle gave the audience an electrifying show that only seasoned artists could give. NPG artists Shelby J, Elisa Fiorillo and Liv Warfield each took the stage performing past and current music. Shelby J ripped open the set with “How I Know Love” followed by “Use Me Up”. She later closed her dynamic set by performing an original song about her home state titled “North Carolina” that features Anthony Hamilton. Elisa Fiorillo performed next by taking the audience back to the 80’s and performing fan favorites such as “Who Found Who” and “On the Way Up”. She later wowed the crowd with her hit single, “Share it With You”. In addition, five members of the NPG horn section played and brought the house down with their solo performances.
R&B diva, Cherrelle hit the stage next and immediately brought the audience to their feet. From her dance moves to her crowd interactions, Cherrelle proved that her music and talent is timeless. The 80’s star performed her most notable duet, “Saturday Love” with Quinn of the Jukebox Band and her signature hit “I Didn’t Mean to Turn You On”.
New Power Generation’s Liv Warfield literally murdered the stage and closed out the evening on a high note. Warfield performed hits “Why Do You Lie” and “ I Decided”. Warfield’s raw, hard-hitting vocals were reminiscent of the iconic singer Tina Turner. In closing, all three NPG artists, Shelby J, Elisa Fiorillo and Liv Warfield performed “Que Sera, Sera”.
Notables in attendance last night included Big Krit, Chaka Zulu (Ludacris manager), producer/DJ Eddie F, Comedian Joe Clair, Professional Drummer Lil Jon Roberts, Grammy Award-winning producer Big Jim (Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis), TV producer Wendy Eley, and Atlanta’s true music aficionados!
