Breakthrough Atlantic recording artist, Netta Brielle kicked-off June’s show with a rock-style performance, opening with a cover of Mint Condition’s Pretty Brown Eyes. Netta closed out her set strong, performing her new single, More to a Kiss.
Songstress Mathai came and dominated the stage, singing an eclectic intro including a mix of The Eurhythmics Sweet Dreams transitioning to Jay-Z’s hit Empire State of Mind, and finishing with Sweet Dreams, by the Eurhythmics. Mathai then performed her new single, Girl like Me, from her upcoming EP, Girl like Me, scheduled to drop on Independence Day, July 4th. Changing the pace of the show, she transitioned to a rendition of Pusher Love Girl, from Justin Timberlake and closed her set with Inside Out, a classic single from her debut album from earlier this year, Once Again.
Closing out the show was Grammy Award winning artist and songwriter, The Tony Rich Project, who opened with his popular single Like Me. Tony continued to thrill the crowd with his platinum hit single “Nobody Knows” and wrapped his performance with his latest single, “Speak Me,” which is off his album Speak Me, which is due summer 2013.
