Thursday night, Samsung hosted multi-talented upcoming artist Noah Cyrus as part of their Made for Summer Live at 837 Series Summer Live Series.
Actress turned singer Noah and also younger sister of Miley Cyrus has already topped billboard charts with hit singles like ‘Make Me’ and ‘Stay Together’, but now she’s stepping into a new pedestal of stardom with her nomination of Best New Artist for MTV’s Video Music Awards this year.
The concert kicked off with an exclusive VIP event, held at the Samsung 837 rooftop which included live music, an open bar with beer and rosé, and lofty daybeds equipped with Samsung mobile phones. In addition, guests also enjoyed taking photos with a frame of a Galaxy S8 that was displayed with the view of the Manhattan sunset as the background. Hors d’oeuvres included summer squash empanadas with fresh cheese, fresh oregano, and cilantro yogurt; blackened fish tacos in grilled corn tortilla with tomatillo relish; and chilled watermelon cubes with Greek feta and basil.
Closing into the concert, Noah appeared on the rooftop where she was surprised with news of her nomination along with a celebratory cake and mini cupcakes decorated with a photo stamp of her VMA nomination.
The audience was joined by hundreds of fans who were eagerly awaiting the singer’s performance on the second and third floors of Samsung’s experience space as the VIP guests were escorted to the main stage. Guests were treated to savory bites in preparation for the performance such as Korean chili chicken, potato topped with steak, and falafel burgers.
Shortly before 9pm, Noah Cyrus was introduced by her record label’s representatives before greeting the concert venue. Cyrus gave thanks for crowd’s support before jumping into the first track of the night, ‘Stay Together’, her most recent hit and also a fan favorite followed by a modern cover of ‘Electric Love’ by BØRNS. Cyrus then went back to her familial country roots with ‘I’m Stuck’ before continuing covers of AJR’s ‘Weak’ and ‘I Feel It Coming’ by The Weeknd featuring Daft Punk sang with her signature deep rustic tone. The singer also wasn’t shy to step off the stage to dance her way along the stairs during the performance, showing no signs of being an amateur. Closing off the set was her single made with Labrinth, ‘Make Me’, originally an emotional piece, but sung with a new attitude of passion and effervescence signifying her growth as a new-coming artist.
Noah Cyrus’s debut album NC-17 drops later this year.
