On Friday, June 24, three artists are hitting the stage for a performance you don’t want to miss. LivSuite Presents Summer Soul Session Vol. 2, featuring Lauren White, Chris Turner, and Ife’. These artists are an eclectic mix of R&B, Neo-Soul, Jazz, and Funk.
Lauren White has performed with great acts, such as Chante Moore, Anthony Hamilton, and Will Downing. Her first solo album, “The Biography”, debuted in November 2009, and her next album is set to be released later this summer. This Washington, DC native has been described as dynamic and commanding and her performances are “guaranteed to keep the listener entertained, engaged, feeling like they are a part of the experience.”
“Love Child” Chris Turner decided at the tender age of 4 he wanted to be a singer, just like his father. This Oakland, CA native has been performing most of his life. Past affiliations include the SF Jazz High School All-Stars and GRAMMY High School Jazz Ensemble. Chris has been on tour with Gwen Stefani, Chris Brown, Kelly Clarkson, and Bilal Oliver. Currently working on his first full album “LOVEchild”, Chris was selected in February of this year by BET Music Matters as an “Artist to Watch”.
Not only is Seattle native Ife’ a singer and songwriter-she has also started her own company, Crescendo Entertainment. Her hope for Crescendo is that it will be “the conduit through which I not only create and produce various projects that I’ve been wanting to bring to life, but also will allow me to use my creative expression to help uplift people in their lives. It starts with music, but that’s really only the foundation; it’s my platform to share my gifts with the world.”
As you can see, this show on the 24th is going to be filled with wonderful talent, and if you’re in the DMV, you definitely don’t want to miss it. The venue for Summer Soul Session Vol. 2 is XII Restaurant and Lounge, located at 1123 H Street NE, Washington, DC. Advanced tickets can be purchased now for $20; they will be $25 at the door. Bring your man, bring your girl, or just come by yourself. Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
