In true Melanie Fiona fashion, she brought down a packed B.B. King’s in NYC with her sultry and heart-hitting voice.
The two-time Grammy winner is no stranger to a packed house. Using her voice and lyricism, every note hits a certain part of your heart. Her ability to create a story out of her lyrics is one of the most amazing performances to watch.
Through her blend of R&B and jazz, Melanie Fiona has a certain sound that translates every struggle you have ever experienced in love, every hardship that life may bring, and every victory that follows. As she sang to some of our favorite hits such as, “Fool For You” and “Remember You”, the audience was captivated. Within the first 20 minutes of her set, B.B. Kings was entirely filled, including no standing room available. Yet, hundreds of fans stood wherever there was space, swaying back and forth to her unique sound.
In complete harmony with her band, Fiona’s performance was nothing short of amazing to experience. She even intrigued fans by finishing the set a few songs early. At which point, with enough help from the screaming audience, Fiona reappeared to a standing ovation, as the audience hooped and hollered for the seasoned R&B singer to debut more of her new music.
Her authentic sound and performance is what sets Fiona apart from the trifold of other R&B singers. As she dances along to the music with her audience, her spirit is encapsulated with every note. To witness and experience how she interacts with her audience on her journey through love, heartbreak, and self-realization, she invites you to remember those same emotions. She invites you to sing along as if you already knew every lyric to every song. And she invites you to feel the same feelings she felt. That is what separates her true talent, her ability to walk you through every experience as if the song was written for you.
After some much awaited time, Melanie Fiona will be releasing her third studio album later this year, entitled, Awake. Needless to say, the raw emotion felt in her newest music is unlike any other.
