Last night I got my life! Once a month here in Atlanta, there is an event held called ATL Live On The Park. It is a monthly music showcase that features LIVE music from established and emerging artist. There’s food, drinks, press, celebrity attendees and all that jazz, you get the picture. Well last nights talent line up included Marcus Canty, Q-Parker, and Latocha Scott. Bay-Bay when I tell you Latocha Scott sang that place down, she sang it down! Don’t sleep, Marcus Canty did his thing too. Quiet as its kept, I didn’t half no who the hell Marcus Canty was, but I definitely know he he is now. This brother sang This Woman’s Work and gave Maxwell a NASTY run for his money.
Though I love live music, I tend not to care for artist showcases because artist get up on stage and start singing a bunch of music that nobody knows, and ain’t nobody got time for that. Contrary to what i expected to take place, Latocha Scott took the stage and sang three of Xscapes biggest hits, You’re My Little Secret, Who Can I Run To, and Just Kickin’ it. She also took time to let us know what she has been up to.
According to Scott, we can expect a Christmas album from her this year as well as her much anticipated album Truth In The Booth. Scott also let us know that reality tv may not be too far out for her either, that she had some things on the tv front in the making. Honestly chile, nobody was hearing any of that, we just wanted mama to sang some more. Y’all may not believe me, but before The Doll checks out of this place called earth, I’m gone get my Xscape reunion. Oohhhhh Kandi… Did I fail to mention that Latocha is looking good. Yes GAWD. Pretty soon, we gone have to stop calling her “Big Girl From Xscape.”
Who Can I Run To
She hit that high note! Yes GAWD!
Just Kickin’ It
This is my jam right here. I know all the dance moves
You’re My Little Secret
Like I mentioned earlier, I had heard of Marcus Canty before but I wasn’t really up on what he was really all about. Needless to say, he has made a fan out of me. Marcus placed 4th on the first season of X-Factor and he is out to show folks exactly what you are supposed to do when given a platform like that. Marcus sang several songs, but the one performance that sent everyone through the roof is when the pint size crooner had the nerve to sing the Kate Bush classic This Woman’s Work, Maxwell style. Hunty, by the time lil man got through singing in his his falsetto, all the old ladies in the building had to leave, and not because they had to go to work in the morning. OKAY!
