Philadelphia’s own Jazmine Sullivan performed at the Made in America festival on Sept. 3. This was Sullivan’s first performance at the festival, and she put on quite a show for R&B lovers.

With the recent talk that R&B is dead, Sullivan quickly debunked those rumors and gave the fans an old-soul vibe, while also satisfying the new generation of music junkies with her explicit lyrics.


To get the women engaged, she asked “raise your hands if you got good p—-.”

Sullivan went through her catalog of songs, starting with “Bust Your Windows,” followed by “Put it Down.” She also performed her two most popular songs, “Lion, Tigers, and Bears,” which is on her debut album Fearless, and “Pick Up Your Feelings,” which is on her latest project, Heaux Tales.


To give an old-school R&B feeling, Sullivan performed “Holding You Down,” which uses the sample “Killing Me Softly With His Song” by the Fugees.

In the middle of the performance, the singer showed love for her city and announced that prior to coming on stage she was awarded a Liberty Bell from the city of Philadelphia as a token of appreciation.

To end the show, Sullivan spoke life into the crowd and gave them some words of encouragement: “Always show sympathy, because you never know what somebody is going through.”
