Last Friday many numbers congregated at Camden’s hotspot Proud, waiting in anticipation for RnB prodigy Miguel take to the stage. The show was opened by some much-loved femmes from all corners of the earth, including Yasmeen, Hayley Cassidy and the Voice star, Lovelle.
Lovelle, treated us to some sumptuous offerings including her TV audition; Diamonds cover by Rihanna.
She performed this track acoustic, showing off her soulful and ethereal vocals over a reggae backdrop which was uniquely wonderful. She also performed her own song Not For Girls and Last Step with British rapper Lioness.
This was really a night to prove why she deserved a coveted place on Jessie J’s squad.
After some hot dance, old school and Hip-Hop tunes, a swarm of Miguel fans filled the room – there was very little space to breath let alone shuffle!
The 27-year-old Californian singer gave us a hot rendition of his much-loved tunes, including Sure Thing, Lotus Flower Bomb, Adorn and new release, Power Trip where he features on the hit with J. Cole.
Miguel’s soothing R&B vocals and affable character makes him one of the most charming men in the scene right now. His talent cannot be capped and his performance at Proud is a true testimony to this.
It is safe to say that there were no risky surf jumps that night as there were at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, so everyone was safe and sound (thank God).
A tad gutted that he didn’t perform How Many Drinks? but other than this and the fact that there was barely any room to maneuver… his performance was spectacular (if brief).
