I must have the luck of the Irish, well I am part Irish, in me because I won tickets to this concert on my birthday by texting the name of a movie to 98.7 Kiss FM with Shaila. The movie was "The Devil Wears Prada." Thanks to that being my favorite movie and my birthday making me get up early to hear the radio, I got a chance to have one of the best experiences ever.
I was going crazy in my house trying to figure out how to get there, what to wear and who to take with me. Richie had to work so he told me to take my bff Shauna, whose birthday was the 26th and she did invite me to go see a taping of "America's Got Talent" with her but I had to work. She wanted to spend our birthdays together and what better way to do it than go see Donell Jones. So I jumped on Google and got the directions. Then got my clothes ready that night. I still went to work that day but after work it was on.
So we met up at Penn Station and got into the city. Nearly got lost but thanks to the guys with the pretty eyes lol, we found our way. We were there right in front of the line and then he came walking by. I bet yall are wondering who. Donell Jones waved and smiled at us and we were like frozen statues and we never freeze. Especially as much as we were on TRL. But we finally go in after my name was checked off the guest list. It was a beautiful place inside and DJ Qua was on the money with the hits.
The special guest Emanny blew people away with his cool lyrics and amazing voice. He's an unsigned artist that needs to be signed not now but right now. He sung songs such as "All She Wants Is Me" a reply to Miguel's "All I Want Is You" and "Hope He Cheats on You" a reply to Marsha Ambrosius' "Hope She Cheats on You." I was also picked out of the crowd (I was front and center) to be sang to on stage. I was soooo nervous because everyone was taking photos and videos of me. Even Shauna captured part of the moment. He even song Happy Birthday to me. Lil Nat presented me with more ticket to see a play "What You're Man Doesn't Know" and asked me if I had a man. I said "Yea" and she was like "Wow what happens at SOB's stays in SOBs!" LOL.
Then Donell Jones came out and the crowd went wild. He performed numerous hits including "U Know What's Up," "This Luv," "Where I Wanna Be," and Stevie Wonder's "Knocks Me Off My Feet." He was so full of energy. I really enjoyed his performance and I melted with his smile. He's such a great singer, he needs way more recognition. His new album came out August 10, 2010 and he songs songs from it such as "Love Like This" and "All About Sex." I truly had a blast at SOBs in NYC watching Donell Jones rip it up! I was also sung to by Emanny and I shook Donell Jones' hand. I will cherish this moment forever.
