We checked out Charisse "Swanzilla" Swan's (second from left) weekly R&B showcase Love Jones last Saturday at the Delmar Lounge. This week was a special sista soul version of it. Pictured were participants after the event (from left) Coco Soul, Swan, Shaneitha, Tendai Morris, Katrina Reece and Reecey (not pictured Ms Trish and Tiffany Elle)
We got there an hour in the showcase.
Miss Tish sang two songs. One was Jill Scott's "Lonely Whenever Youre Around."
Tiffany Elle performed.
Swan brought on Coco Soul, who was greeted with a welcoming hug by Swan when she arrived. Swan told the crowd that Soul created Cafe Soul and was one of the singing greats in St. Louis . Although she wasnt planning to sing but with much egging from Swan, she sang Chaka's "Aint Nobody."
Soul gettin into the tune.
NOTE: This was a landmark moment as some of the STL area talented female singers showcasing their talent. It was like a STL-soul version of Lilith Fair. It was laid back and enjoyable. Now if we could only get an explanation about the guy who was there, brushing his hair and face constantly and walking the floor only on the white squares (he even did a squat ). LOL.
