So tonight rap diva Cardi B was in for the surprise of her life. The BX native took the stage at Power 99 Powerhouse Concert In Philly at the Wells Fargo Center and let’s just say what happened next was definitely not apart of the show. After taking the stage with Migos to perform their new single “Motor Sport” the rappers now fiancé rap star Offset got on one knee in front of thousands of fans to propose to his Queen. Well clearly she said YES , but you just have to see the exciting moment for yourself below. Congrats to the couple on their upcoming nuptials, let’s hope this one will last.


Last night some of musics biggest stars came out in NYC for Power 105.1 annual Powerhouse Concert. The sold out event held at the Barclays Center was jam packed with fans & media ready in excitement to see some of today’s finest in Hip Hop and r&b. The show kicked off with dancehall star Kranium who rocked the stage with special guest ‘Power’ star Rotimi. Up next was The Breakfast Club’s own DJ Envy who took over the stage with a few special friends including ASAP Ferg , Casanova , Busta Rhymes & Tee Grizzley. Now that was just within the first half hour of the night so with that being said, trust me the show was only gonna get crazier. Bad Boy’s own French Montana hit the stage next and rocked the crowd with some of his fan favorite hits which kept the crowd on their feet as they sang along to every word , but what happened next was a sight to see. Philly’s own Lil Uzi Vert shook up the building as he jumped off the stage and performed in the stands with fans which sent the crowd into a frenzy. His rock star antics on stage proved exactly why he is one today’s biggest stars.

Now if that wasn’t enough then up next was the Bronx Queen Cardi B who was clearly the lady of the night. The breakout rap diva hit the stage with a vengeance backed by dancers as she performed some of her fan favorite tracks from her mix-tape. But when ‘Bodak Yellow’ came on the crowd sang along so loud you could barely hear the rap star over them. Just when the crowd thought she was done she decided to close out her set with special guest G-Eazy to perform their hit single ‘No Limit’ and trust me their was still more in store. Rap superstars Migos were up next and as always they lit the stage on fire performing some of the big hits like ‘Hannah Montana’ , ‘T-Shirt’ and of course ‘Bad and Boujee’. Just when we thought that was all the rap crew decided to premiere their new single ‘Motor Sport’ exclusively for the crowd which sent everyone into a frenzy since the track features Nicki Minaj & Cardi B. Honestly the show could’ve ended there and all would be well but we still had one more act to go. Superstar The Weekend closed out the big night backed by his band and a killer light show which made everyone feel like they had front row seats to his actual tour. The Weekend cranked out hit after hit and also brought out a few special guest including rap stars Belly & Travis Scott. Powerhouse once again proved why it stands the must see concert of the year in NYC and trust me if you were there you can surely see why it will always sell out. Hopefully you were there but if you weren’t well give you a preview of what you missed out on. Check out some exclusive pics and footage from last night and as always we hope to see be back next year.

Last night we had the pleasure of coming out to the legendary Highline Ballroom in NYC to catch British soul singer Daley as he kicked off the first week of his Spectrum Tour in support of his new album. The big night kicked off with rising star musician/singer Kenneth Whalum who has finally stepped out on his own with his debut album ‘Broken Land’. Kenneth who is mostly known for working some of music’s biggest stars including Jay-Z , Maxwell & Frank Ocean took the stage with confidence like a seasoned pro as he performed some of his new tracks which set the tone for the night and left the crowd ready for more. Up next was soulful songstress Tiffany Gouche who was a breath of fresh air. The California native commanded the stage with her powerhouse vocals which took the audience’s breath away as she sang every song with conviction effortlessly. Though i knew of the singer/songwriter it was clear many in the crowd had no clue who she was but within minutes she won everyone over and instantly it was clear why Daley brought her along for the ride.

Now it was time for what everyone was waiting for and Daley kicked off his set with a neon rainbow backdrop, whole holding a matching colorful umbrella which clearly was a sign of one hell of show was about to take place. Daley took the stage and performed some of his fan favorite hits including ‘Time Travel’ ,’Selfish’ , ‘Until The Pain Is Gone’ , ‘Remember Me’ , ‘Slow Burn‘ & more but was stood out to me was the arrangements in his show. Daley would perform one of his own records which would turn into a medley of some r&b classics like SWV’s ‘Weak’ , Jon B’s ‘ They Don’t Know ‘ & Joe’s ‘I Wanna Know’ which proved just why we love his voice. The soulful powerhouse sang his heart out as fans sang along to just about every word and just when we thought we couldn’t get enough he performed his classic single ‘Alone Together’ which floored everyone in the building. Daley’s show was just a glimpse into why his star continues to shine and if you were then you know exactly what i meant. With albums like ‘Days+Nights’ & ‘The Spectrum’ its clear why this man is here to stay. Check out a few clips via Instagram to see exactly what i mean and if the show is coming to your city, trust me its a show you don’t want to miss.

Now if that wasn’t enough Miss Robbie famous for her chain of soul food restaurants and her hit OWN series ‘Welcome To Sweetie Pies’ was another crowd favorite as fans couldn’t wait to see her in action as she showed off some of her world famous dishes. Cooking and eating is always a crowd pleaser but health care and fitness is also a big part of the expo so of course it made sense to have Dr Ian Smith in attendance to talk about the importance of health , dieting and physical fitness. Actress Elise Neal also came out to get the crowd in shape with a special demonstration of her Body Bootcamp.

The legendary Cicely Tyson was also in attendance as Circle Of Sisters honored the iconic actress of film ,television and theater for all her work on and off the screen.

The Ernest Dickerson directed film set in Curacao followed the coming of age story of Dr. Ostrik Fiel’s as he returns to his childhood home which bring back the haunting memories of a life changing events which changed the lives of four men and two women due to love, loss and a deadly betrayal. This film was the perfect choice for a spotlight feature which left everyone in awe.

Dorsey & Ethan Hutchison came out for the special screening and Q&A panel which clearly was a winner with this years audience.

Actress Gabourey Sidibe stepped behind the lens as as director this year with the premiere of her short film ‘The Tale Of Four’ . The short inspired by Nina Simone’s song ‘Four Women’ was a powerful piece that showcased a real story of women connected by the inner city building that they live in, as they all deal with hardships on one fateful day which brings them together through acts of bravery. The film which starred Jussie Smollett , Dana Gourrier , Ledisi Young , Aisha Hinds , Phyllis Yvonne Stickney 8 Meagan Kimberly Smith is a must see that definitely left the audience speechless.

Closing out this years festival was the highly anticipated Reginald Hudlin directed film “Marshall”. The films stars Chadwick Boseman , Sterling K Brown , Kate Hudson & Josh Gad were all in attendance for the big event along with songbird Andra Day who sings the theme song for the film’s soundtrack.
