Teedra Moses Leads Three-Nights At The London Jazz Cafe Celestina Diamond August 22, 2017 In the heart of London Town at the legendary Jazz Café, the Cognac & Conversation singer Teedra Moses bought her art to life for the first run of her three-night headline show. Opening up for the crowd was one half of UK R&B duo Dora Martin, singer-songwriter Cherri V. Accompanied by her husband the acclaimed drummer Junior Kirton and a single guitarist the songstress delivered a sensual acoustic set to warm up the crowd. Kicking off her set with the classic ‘Favourite Guy,’ the Londoners euphoric vocals took us through a journey of love, healing, industry struggles and gratitude. A short interval in the heavily packed venue left little room to manoeuvre but this did not dampen the mood as the crowd geared up for the headliner. Prior to the ‘Dip It Low’ songwriters entrance the band set up in preparation for her live set, led by MD Wayne Plummer on guitar before being shortly joined by gospel singer Ryan Carty on background vocals while the host introduced the R&B hit maker. Once on stage Moses immediately engaged the crowd with banter expressing her love of the UK with a bottle of brandy in tow warning us that this show was about to be a lit! Kicking off the show with mega hit ‘You’ll Never Find’ that originally features rapper Jadakiss, the crowd sang back word for word. The New Orleans native took us through a blend of classic hits from her debut album Complex Simplicity with stand out songs ‘Rescue Me,’ which she dedicated to the political race controversy of her home town. She moved on to a sweet serenade with the inspirational track ‘For a Lifetime’ accompanied by words of encouragement and tales of her journey. The R&B Diva went on to thank God and her unwavering fans for supporting her journey thus far through words and song.

Individually they demonstrated their talent in a moments spotlight but the stand out star is the fresh young drummer Michael Efah who set the crowd with an epic solo drum performance. Watch: Teedra Moses On Stacy Dash “Don’t Speak Against Your People” I had the privilege to watch the Queen @teedramoses perform live @thejazzcafe London. Let me tell you, I have not had this much fun in a longtime. We were blessed to hear them Big Gal Anthems that even if your not going through that situation, just listening to song makes you feel like you are all up in it…….. #teedramoses #music #rnb #singersongwriter #grammys #artist #soul #love # A post shared by Tolanii (@tolanii.tolanii) on Aug 15, 2017 at 10:41am PDT To bring the crowd back to a celebratory vibe Moses picked up the set with ‘Caught Up’ with a bounce and ‘Be your girl’ was crowd pleaser that she remixed with a European twist. Spicing things up the Grammy nominee injected a bit of ratchet with ‘Better Tell Her,’ for what we thought was the encore but Moses came back out with more gratitude and strength. To conclude the show Moses belted out her soulful slowjam ‘Backstroke’ and the crowd were satisfied as they had been requesting it all night. Overall the first show was a huge success, with a setlist full of nogistic crowd pleasers. Both Cherri V and Teedra Moses delivered immaculate vocal performances which were boasted immensely by the live band, who stole the show.
