It was a night dedicated to nothing but good music and some good ole R&B at Nema Kamar’s R&B music showcase Nema’s Boom Boom Room. Folks packed the popular concert venue/night club DROM located in Alphabet City in NYC to enjoy soulful performances from Angelica Silva, Corey Nova, Jessica Betts, Abir and headlining act Elle Varner.
Comedian Kyle Grooms and Celebirty DJ/Host, Tali Gore helped keep things lively before introducing each of the acts. Kyle supplied the humor and kept the crowd laughing as they waited for each singer to grace the stage.
Angelica Vila started the show singing original cuts such as “Making Up My Mind” backed by dancers.
Corey Nova brought even more energy to the stage and wowed the crowd with his explosive stage presence. The crowd totally got into his with his rendition of Bobby Brown’s classic record “My Prerogative”.
Jessica Betts really stole the show with her powerful vocals and her amazing guitar skills. Jessica even did a cover of “Kiss” that Prince would be proud of.
Abir may look small but her voice absolutely shook the building. She raised the energy in the building as the crowd was totally blown away by her amazing vocals.
The woman of the hour Elle Varner didn’t disappoint. Elle opened up her set with “F**K It All” before she decided to bless her fans with a new track titled “Nothing”. She closed out the show with an amazing acoustic performance of her smash hit “Refill”.
