Recap & Photos: Raheem DeVaughn Performs at BB King’s in NYC 10/9/14
Last night at BB King’s in NYC, Raheem DeVaughn performed and shut it down just as he does with every peformance. Living up to our expectations for him as one of the best performers in the r&b genre, he certainly didn’t disappoint on this occasion. Raheem brought the energy from the start, storming the stage to his single “I Don’t Care”, and it wasn’t long before the crowd was up and partying with him. As he went into “Bulletproof”, he encouraged the audience to get on their feet, where many would remain for the remainder of the set. Joining Raheem on stage as usual was his personal painter Demont Pinder who created his artwork while the performance was going on.
For the first time in NYC, Raheem performed his new single “Queen” which he touted as a new anthem for the females who desperately needed some positivity in the music. He also announced that his new album “Sex, Love, and Passion” would be releasing in the first week of February.
In typical Raheem DeVaughn fashion, he continued to take his performance to the next level as the show went on. The pinnacle was when he made his way through the crowd before ending up on top of the bar at the back of the room and using that as his stage! He also took the time to thank his fans in the room who had been rocking with him since ’05 (the year his debut came out) and were still with him. Congrats to Raheem on yet another extremely impressive show.
