It was a full house at The Fillmore in Silver Spring last night (Dec. 30). Fans from all parts of the DMV (DC, Maryland and Virginia) swarmed to the venue to see Jazmine Sullivan perform music from her latest album Reality Show, as well as some older material.
Sullivan gracefully walked on stage around 9 p.m. and was greeted with a roar of cheer and screams from her hardcore fans. Donning a black and white zig zag jacket with blue jeans, the Philadelphia native opened her set with “Brand New.” Immediately following, Sullivan went back took us back to her debut album Fearless with “Busting Windows” and “Lion, Tigers and Bears.” Filled with excitement, her fans were singing as loud as they could, forcing Sullivan to point her mic to the crowd.
Before revisiting songs from Reality Show, Sullivan performed an epic mash-up of “Holding You Down (Goin In Circles)” and Fugee’s classic song “Killin’ Me Softly.”
“This song is for the lovers. I want y’all to groove with me,” Sullivan told the audience before singing her Grammy nominated song “Let It Burn.” She also performed “If You Dare,” a stripped down version of “Stupid Girls” and “Forever Don’t Last.”
A highlight from the show was when she performed her emotionally-charged song “Masterpiece (Mona Lisa).” She revealed to her fans, “I had to do some soul-searching. What I realized is I was not living myself and not honoring myself.”
After getting everyone in their feelings, Sullivan lightened the mood with “Hood Love” and “Mascara.”
She closed out the show with her debut single “I Need U Bad” and her fan-favorite song “In Love with Another Man.”
Overall, Sullivan’s concert was nothing short of amazing. From flawless vocals to crowd engagement, Sullivan proved that she is a legend in the making. She took us on an emotional rollercoaster filled with laughs, smiles and tears.
