Rock the Stage

The Beautiful and Determined (BAD) 2nd Annual Concert and Celebration was held at the Louisville Downtown Hard Rock Café Sunday night. 

If you weren't there you definitely missed out on a FREE and amazing event showcasing local and independent talent. 

Throughout the night people signed up to join team BAD for the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk taking place on Saturday Oct. 28th, Louisville Waterfront. 

The show artist lineup consist of 7, each performer brought a diverse style to the stage . 

Alexa Morgan opened up the show by singing an a cappella song.  She eventually brought her guitarist on stage to accompany her for the remainder of her performance.

Following her was CJ2Much, he worked and hyped up the crowd had everyone putting their 2's up in the air. It was the first time a waiter of Hard Rock Café heard his music and seen him perform. She personally said to me "he's good!" I'm glad to know she was impressed to the point she could hardly focus on taking my order. 😂

Our third performer of the night Sean P, gave us another a cappella opening. Singing his rendition version of "Let Me Love You" by R&B singer Mario followed by his own original single "Pantiez". 

"That's how we do it out here went straight from let me love you to take your panties off"  😂 

A moment that slightly shocked us all! We thought that at one point of time clothes were being taken off. However, in a very tasteful and respectful way. 

DestineeRai, from Lexington, KY gave us some Black Girl Magic mixed with some 'tricks' down her sleeves. Opening her performance with "I've Already Cried." Eventually ending her performance singing "Just U" with Emmit Jay and a somewhat different outfit then before.  

Gio El Futuro, gave us the Latin feel for the night. Most people were not familiar with the words to his single "Dime" but the beat is so dope it'll have you thinking you know just about every word and it's meaning. Gio brought alongside of him Chris Major to perform a cover of 'Location' by Khalid. Gio wrapped up his performance by giving a tribute to Puerto Rico and the tragedies that they are currently facing from the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.

She was the youngest performer of the entire night, Shania Robinson, is truly a songbird! I was alongside vibing with her as she performed one of my personal favorites, 'Boy'. 

Tez of 2deep, co-host who played a huge role in putting the show together was our final act of the night! He was the only performer who had back up singers to accompany him. Telling everyone to "get up on their feet, they need to get their lives ... can't worry all smiles!" During his performance he brought up his niece to showcase her vocals, singing SWV's song 'Weak.' We hope to see her advance her career within music, she has an amazing voice.

We even had DJ PartyAllWknd, off in the cut on the 1's and 2's keeping the crowd hyped and playing the talents music. 

Wknd with Tez Radio Show team was in the building.
