It only seemed fitting that singer Angie Stone would headline the final chapter of this season’s ATL Live on the Park. The singer has a strong following the city and her music is loved by many. Held at Park Tavern, the event was hosted by Taiye Samuel and DJ Mars provided the music. Carol Blackmon (radio personality), Jaquitta Williams (news anchor), Okevia Wilson, Jae Christian, Gwen Boyd-Moss (cast of “Sellin’ it in the ATL”), Todd Tucker (Bravo producer &TV One “Hollywood Divas” producer), Peter Thomas (“Real Housewives of Atlanta”), and Atlanta City Councilman Kwanza Hall were spotted.
Shanti Das and Marlon Nichols continue to produce these wonderful events the second Tuesday of the month. Tops is the annual hip hop awards week edition where the planners get to take things back to the old school and you never know who’s going to show up to perform. Musicians including Teddy Riley, Devyne Stephens, Sean Garrett, Wayne Brady, and R Kelly have graced the stage. Lil Jon Roberts (drummer for Janet Jackson) even made a special point to come through before heading out to Honolulu on Janet’s next tour stop.
As another chapter closes and a new one will begin in the spring, Angie Stone took us down memory lane with some of her favorite hits like “Wish I Didn’t Miss You” and “Brotha.” However, Stone took time to introduce the audience to her new songs from her latest album, Dream.
Stone has a new team, a new look and a new attitude. Make sure you download her new album and purchase it online. We can’t wait for the next chapter of ATL Live in the Park to begin in the spring. Special thanks to Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey for being an event sponsor. Check out the photo gallery.
