Last night, ATL Live on the Park season 6 continued to heat up the summer at Park Tavern in Piedmont Park with live performances from classic R&B group, Silk and emerging female artist Vina Mills. Taiye Samuel a.k.a "The Wild Afrikan" hosted the event and pumped up the crowd alongside DJ Mars and the house-band, Quinn and the Jukebox. July's edition of ATL Live on the Park was sponsored by Gentleman Jack and Magic 107.5.
The night kicked-off with an energetic performance from indie R&B artist Vina Mills. The up-and-coming songstress commanded the stage covering classics and performing an original titled, "Love Em Good."
Event Co-Founder Shanti Das also sent her mentee, Ryan Bolton to the stage to warm up the crowd performing Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come." DJ Mars kept the crowd entertained with a mix of old school classics and today's hottest hits before introducing the main act of the night.
Finally, event headliner Silk took the stage and immediately captured the hearts of true R&B fans performing the classic hit "Meeting in My Bedroom." Next, the group gave the audience a sneak preview of their forthcoming album (set for release Winter 2015) with new songs titled, "Brown Eyed Girl" and "Love 4 you to Like Me." Just when the crowd thought the night was over, Silk came through and performed some of their greatest hits including, "Don't Stop Singing," "Freak Me Baby" and "Lose Control." Silk continued to surprise attendees as they doused the audience with water and brought several audience members to the stage including R&B star J. Holiday, for a brief cameo performance.
Notables in attendance included:
J.Holiday - American R&B artist
Cyrene Tankard - Star of Bravo TV's Thicker Than Water
Mishon - American R&B artist
