ATL Live on the Park has a reputation for bringing the hottest R&B acts back to the forefront or breaking the careers of new artists, but Monday night was a lil bit different (August 26, 2013).
The popular showcase’s creators Shanti Das and Marlon Nichols joined forces with Peter Thomas and Gregg Leakes of The Real Housewives of Atlanta to produce the first-ever PLATINUM edition of ATL Live on the Park.
Scheduled performances included R&B crooner Case, new jack swing artist Christopher Williams (“CMB We all we got!”), King Shakes (Peter Thomas’ son), and while Porsha Stewart was listed on the flyer as one of the performers, she certainly wasn’t missed after R. Kelly hit the stage for a surprise performance! Kelz was then followed by other impromptu performances from Teddy Riley and hip-hop pioneer Greg Nice (of Nice ‘n Smooth).
Lifestyle specialist Kenny Burns alongside DJ Mars and the Teddy White Band continued to keep the crowd pumped, while several industry notables enjoyed the festivities.
Attendees included: Real ‘Housewives’ Nene Leakes and Cynthia Bailey, Tameka Raymond, Monyetta Shaw, Michael Kyser (Atlantic Records President of Black Music), philanthropist Chanita Foster (Beyond the Game), Devyne Stephens, Jazze Pha, Jevon ‘Vawn’ Sims, Benzino (Love & Hip Hop Atlanta) and more.
