Musiq Soulchild, Bilal and Vivian Green all returned home for an amazing show @ The Electric Factory in Philadelphia, PA showing their love to the Philly fans while performing neo-soul hits from the early 2000’s along with new music from their recently released albums. Fans packed the Electric Factory with lines down the block, knowing that this powerful line-up of neo-soul singers would bring the house down – and that they did!
Grammy-Award-winning soul-singer Bilal opened the show, coming out to his hit single “Money Over Love” which featured Kendrick Lamar, from his latest album ‘In Another Life’. After an hour of belting out classics from his five album catalog, he then closed his set performing songs from his debut album “1st Born Second”. After a brief intermission, Vivian Green took the stage joined by longtime collaborators Eric Roberson and Kwame, performing hits such as “Emotional Rollercoster” and “Superwoman”, from her debut album “A Love Story”. Musiq Soulchild then rounded out the night performing back to back melodic R&B classics such as “TeachMe”, “Love” and “SoBeautiful”, as the crowd sung along word-for-word. The mix of some of Philly’s most successful neo-soul all on one stage made this concert a rare performance and all the more special!
