Known for her single “I Think of You,” New Orleans native Teedra Moses was one of the featured R&B singers who brought their smooth, soulful sound to the opening day of ONE Musicfest stage on Saturday, Sept. 8. The talented performer, whose music career began more than a decade ago, helped kick off the two-day celebration of classic and contemporary urban music in Atlanta’s Central Park.
Before her set, fans were camped out near the stage, waiting for her to appear. One fan, Alexis Mosley, was pumped to hear Moses perform.
“I heard ‘Be Your Girl’ a couple of years ago, and I fell in love with it,” Mosley said. “I love her voice. I’m a fan of good altos and sopranos, and she has a perfect range of it. I heard she performs good live. I’m a live person, … so I’m excited to hear her live.”
Wearing bright colors, Moses walked onto the stage like she owned it, with high energy and ready to give the crowd a good show. Her silky voice filled Central Park with the rich sound of R&B as she sang “No More Tears,” “Take Me” and “Be Your Girl.”
And her performance did not disappoint. “I’m speechless,” Mosley said after Moses’ set. “It was everything and more.”
Before she departed, a grateful Moses gave back the same love and appreciation to the crowd that she’d received on stage. “I just want to say thank you, ONE Musicfest! Thank you to my band! Thank y’all!”
