Just like fresh air, Yuna appeared at the perfect time in the music industry. After releasing much audio and visual content, all containing her beautiful soothing pop-jazzy sound with impactful lyrics over pop and hip-hop beats, music lovers fell head over heels. So, it was no surprise that on Tuesday September 27th, 2016 Live at the 9:30 club in Washington DC, all of her fans where ready with many of her lyrics memorized in anticipation of them hearing their favorite songs.
After an awesome opening act who wowed the crowed, the wait was finally over. When everyone saw the band come onto the stage, they all began cheering. Then, Yuna graced us all with her presence wearing a golden and white hijab with a long flowing bronzed colored jacket, a black semi- turtle neck top and matching flowey bell bottomed pants that went perfectly with her hijab.
As the lighting hit Yuna, you could see everyone’s face light up with joy as if they all were thinking to themselves “Wow, she really is a stunning young lady in person.” She was her true self which definitely resonated with the crowd and made everyone even more willing to receive her and her talent with open arms and ears.
This night was special, as it was the kick off show of her U.S. Tour. Giving us a full dose of amazing song after song. She musically hypnotized us all with hits such as: “PLACES TO GO”, “TIME”, “LANES”, “CRUSH”, “USED TO LOVE YOU”, “ALL I DO”, and many more. The band played each song with precision and it enhanced what is already awesome within Yuna, completing the total package of amazing.
It felt good to witness a refreshing, fantastic, live music, conscious, Singer – Songwriter, feel good music experience that we all have in many ways, been depleted of. Yuna gives you the smile you need when you push play. Her videos are creative and colorful and her style and class promotes self confidence and being comfortable in who you are, without needing to ever fall into stereotypical societal standards of what is and is not accepted. She is a great example of loving the skin she is in and stands firm in her identity which all blend so well within the vibe of her music and her delivery of her music live. Yuna is a well rounded music artist with much to offer, which is the foundation to a long lasting career.
