A powerhouse in her own right, Teyana Taylor has the warmth of Anita Baker, the energy of Janet Jackson and a vibe all her own. She is definitely uniquely made and embodies much emotion with a 90’s era soulful delivery.
As she entered the Fillmore Silver Spring stage, the first thing realized was her outfit. Paying homage to an icon. It was as if visually, her and her dancers stepped into the set of a Janet Jackson music video. As she opened her mouth to just sing her first note of the night, it was exciting to watch the vibration of her voice capture her biggest fans in the audience. If nothing else was clear this night, her fans are diehards and Teyana Taylor’s performance was real, expressive and very relatable.
She went through her new album: “VII” (Seven) hitting every groove perfectly. Her voice, vibrant in sound, delivered with ease as she also displayed her advanced level dancing abilities, which was an overall precise and very impressive performance. By the time she got to her current two currently top hits that are in heavy rotation: “Do Not Disturb” and “Maybe”, the audience was completely turned up and loosing their minds in excitement. Once she called men and women up to the stage to join in all of the fun, she confidently knew she had everyone’s undivided attention, and if they had not already bought her CD, they would now!
You couldn’t miss her love of singing if you tried. To love Teyana Taylor, is to know her journey to fame. She literally put herself in small and large significant positions to be heard. By the time she was 16 she was able to make her first impression on the world, and it was surely clear that she was a confident, straight like it is, type of young woman, determined to rise to the top. She used all of her talents: Singing, Modeling, Acting, and Dancing. All, to continuously make her presence known and respected. So, we here at Concert Daily were elated to see the similar opportunity of exposure given to not one, not two, but four opening acts who were all great, and actually deserved the opportunity to shine bright on the Fillmore Silver Spring Stage. It’s always awesome to see these type of life changing experience and we salute DCLA Productions and Tony Redz of WPGC 95.5 for putting on the entire event and presenting this major opportunity.
