Let start off with the Isley Brothers and Chaka Chan August 22nd at The Aretha. You know when Mr. Bigg is involved, the sex appeal is going to be on high!

Ron’s voices was as smooth as ever and his Brother Ernie's guitar playing was crisp. Neither one of these two legends were in rare form that night.

Not to be outdone, Chaka Khan was as beautiful as ever and hasn’t missed a beat We were treated to an old school real music concert and we loved every note.

August 28th 29th Kem play two sold out shows also at the Aretha. Kem’s voice was soothing and sexy. Kem’s vibe is always right were you need it to be and the crowd rode the vibe all night long.

The second night was delayed by rain but once the rain stopped the vibe continued making it another incredible event.

September 1st The Roots played the Russell Industrial Center certainly not the best venue for a concert acoustically but the Roots more than made up for that, the band was tight and of course Black Thought’s Flow was spot on.

The Crowd was electric and we were treated to hit after hit from the Roots.

And as if that wasn’t enough, Slum Village opened to show. Slum was also fantastic, taking us down memory lane with their J Dilla produced tracks.

It was a great night for Hip Hop but a better night for Detroit.

Then Detroit’s adopted son Jezzy came home for two shows on September 2nd and 3rd. Of course you know when Jezzy is home the whole city comes out. The First night he was supported by Fabolous.

Fab opened the show with his legendary silky delivery and clever word play and was the perfect set for Jezzy.

Jezzy as usual had the home team rocking, the whole crowd recited every lyric and the energy was electric.

For the second night Scarface and State Property opened the show. They both took us down memory lane with hit after hit, it was a night to remember. In an emotional moment, Scarface shared with the crowd that he was just a few days away from getting a Kidney Transplant and his son was the donor. He introduced his Son and they both received a rousing ovation.

Saturday September the 11th , Erykah Badu played the Freedom Hill Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre. Ms. Badu filled the venue with her divine feminine energy. Seeing her is an emotional experience; you feel empowered after an Erykah Badu show and I’m still vibing.
