Samsung continued their Supper Club Series with an intimate performance by singer/songwriter Mary J. Blige. Upon arrival, attendees were welcomed with a cocktail hour to the beats of DJ Mel (DeBarge), followed by a specialty curated sit-down dinner menu by Chef Paul Qui. Taking a break from the busy festival, guests enjoyed dinner amongst the backdrop of a candle-lit tables, fresh flowers and a rooftop view of downtown Austin.
Blige serenaded the audience with favorites such as “Real Love”, “ No More Drama“ and “I’m Going Down.“ At the end of her set, excited attendees chanted “Mary, Mary, Mary!” and succeeded in keeping the singer on stage for an encore which included a version of U2’s “One Love.” Even the onlookers from the street hoped to catch some of Mary’s tunes were seen singing and dancing along. Following the performance, popular electronic rock duo Phanotogram took to the turntables and got the crowd dancing into the night.
Actress Danielle Brooks from Orange Is the New Black stopped by to visit Mary and congratulate her on an amazing performance, but Mary was noticeably equally as excited to be meeting an actress from one of her favorite shows.
Throughout the evening, guests were able to interact with Samsung Galaxy Note 4 devices, which displayed the specialty menus on the tables.
