Crystal Nicole’s impressive set prepared the audience for a surprise performance by the beautiful songstress, KeKe Wyatt! Once Wyatt hit the stage, the crowd was treated to a vocally stunning show of her single “Fall in Love” off her new self-titled EP followed by a jazzy performance of her classic remake of “If Only You Knew” .
Shanti Das and Marlon Nichols were not done yet – after Wyatt wrapped her act, the sultry and smooth R&B great, Joe shocked the audience by taking the stage and performing two of his greatest hits, “All the Things Your Man Won’t Do” and “I Wanna Know”. Before exiting, Joe thanked the audience for “showing R&B love” and promoted his upcoming album, Bridges, that will be hitting stores on June 3rd. Although, he wasn’t a female performer, Joe’s surprise serenade proved to be the cherry on top of this month’s sweet “Ladies Night” edition of ATL Live on the Park.
