Well well well, last Friday night at the Howard Theatre was a special moment in time, one where were got to praise and take in all the goodness that one of our OWN has produced. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, Grammy award winning artist Mýa made her presence known when she ascended upon the Howard Theater to present her “Smoove Jones” show.
It’s been YEARS since the triple threat act has performed in her hometown, and after her show on Friday, many people wants to know what took so long! I know for a fact over the past couple of years, I’ve seen many mentions on social media from fans pondering how come whenever there’s a planned Mýa performance, none of them were ever in the DMV. It definitely was as shocking to me too seeing as she’s always been one proud of her D.C. roots, but never had a concert in the area.
From her showing, Mýa has not missed a beat, still throwing down on stage as she once did during the early 2000’s. When you look at her, it’s kind of hard to believe that she’s 36 years old…she must have been sucked in a time warp because she looks like she stepped right off the set of the “Case Of The Ex” music video. Not only did she dance, but she showed a strong vocal performance that shocked a lot of the audience.
The highlight of the show was when she invited her dad on stage to perform a duet with her, singing a cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Ribbon In The Sky. If you didn’t get a chance to check her out, we have you covered. Get into some of her performance videos below. She’s still currently on tour so make your way to her show when it comes to your town.
We’re not sure if you remember, but this past February there was a pretty big concert that happened in the tri-state area for all of the R&B lovers.
