I decided I'd do a quick review of Mr. Studdards show last night...
One word, NICE!
This brotha has some serious talent you hear me? I don't know if he had a good night or what but last night his voice was on point!!!!! My favorite cut of his is Beautiful and when he saaaang it last night I swear he sounded better than the studio version. After singing his song he amended it with the Youuuuuuuuuuu areeeeeeeee sooooo beautiful...to meeeeee song and all I gotta say is when he was done, me and the lady next to me were stuck!!!! I looked at her and she looked at me, we didn't say anything but I knew we were on the same page. It was like DAMN! I swear he needs the right people to write his music cuz I swear with his voice he could be really making some scrilla on them ballads. He did a mix of Luther Songs together and I promise you a tear was about to fall down my eye. I wiped it before it could fall. Ruben could look like Flava flav and still sing you out your panties! Again, he got the wrong people backing him, cuz the man got skill.
His drummer is sexy as *bleep* and this must be a sentence by itself.
Ruben and his band was in all black. The drummer got hot and took his black button down off to expose his black tank top...I kinda like men in black tanks *cough* Then Ruben came out with some black glasses on that soo fit his face...I kinda like men in glasses *cough*. Then Ruben would raise his hand periodically to pump the crowd up or to have us sway our hands and you could see the muscles in his forearm...Dammit. Okay lets just say between him and the drummer I caught an eye full. I was six rows back so my eyes and ears took in everything I possibly could! LOL I just wish I had a camera phone or digicam cuz I was right there. *sigh*
There was one part where he let the band play and I don't know if he was just feeling the music or it was part of the show but he starting grooving a little bit. The crowd started chanting "Go Ruben, Go Ruben, Go Ruben", Let me find out he got some moves! He didn't break out with nothing complicated or nothing, but he had that smoove mack daddy groove going on! YUMMY!
The only issue I had with the show was after Ruben did his string of ballads getting everyone in that love making mood, he broke out the gospel music! HE AIN'T RIGHT! ROFL The only issue I had with the experience was this white lady behind me who kept doing that loud two finger in the mouth whistle and wanted to talk to me. She kept tapping me on the shoulder like someone crazy. She better be lucky it was during one of the songs I wasn't familiar with!
I definitely got my money worth and some more. Pooka even had a good time. She stood on the chair, clapped, swayed her hands, and screamed like the rest of us! After the show she said "Mommy, I liked that band". That made everything even better. :-)
More happened this weekend but I'll get to that later...
