Saturday Night with John Legend
I got an email a few months ago from The Bowery in New York City announcing tickets for John Legend performing at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Honestly, I deleted the email and had to do a double take on the subject line. I immediately opened the email and put it on my calendar when tickets would go on sale. I bought two tickets for myself and my friend Denise. We went to dinner at SoCo in Brooklyn first, then headed to the show.
I have been a huge fan of John Legend since 2005 when his hit Ordinary People was released. I listen to his Get Lifted, Once Again, and Love in the Future albums on repeat; especially Love in the Future. I notice as I get older, the flashing lights and gimmicks that has become pop culture don't really impress me as much as they used to when I was younger. His voice is so authentic it takes me right back to church. No voice machines, no DJ, just straight vocals. His style of music makes me feel like he and his back up singers have jam sessions where they just sing in conversation. I absolutely love love love it!!!!!!!
When it comes to music of any kind, I am a very expressive person. I sing and dance along as though I am the one on stage. I am also an avid concert-goer and I love to enjoy myself and get my money's worth. The show was amazing, very intimate and personal; almost like we were in his living room. He sang all my faves and blew the roof off the theater with his powerful vocals. But to my surprise, it was almost like the crowd was watching the ballet.....no dancing and no liveliness. Then come to find out, you couldn't even stand up and dance in the theater (booooooo).
All in all it was a great night and a great show. I would definitely go see John Legend in concert again, maybe at a different location.
