Fridae’s Choice TOP 10 LIVE 2011

All Photography By: Fridae Mattas

Happy New Year! It’s 2012 and I was going to publish this last year but I had to think about it a little more and finally I compiled a list of the top fifteen. I still needed some time to let it swirl, absorbing into my mind and reflect once again on the insanity of 2011. It was an incredible year for coverage many firsts, the two book signings which were chaotic , I am still undecided on if I or any of the team will be covering any in store signings again, only due to safety concerns, all were very confusing and clustered but nothing compared to the album signing…That was beyond insanity, it amazed me that the artist still had such an impact on his fans and how many females still cried.

After much consideration among the incredibly talented candidates the conclusion is…My most favorite live performance was Boyz II Men at the KoolHaus. I grew up listening and singing to these R&B legends but that is  not why I chose them. Their set was a pure raw performance without auto-tune, stage theatrics or drama, it was just the backing tracks and their voices but it was not perfect there were some issues but there never is the perfect show, shit happens things go wrong all the time and people do make mistakes! Never the less Boyz II Men brought it back to how it used to be in music, when the real talent prevailed and the over glorified tacky redundancy was shunned. Regardless of the time period Boyz II Men were still able to draw and captivate a crowd without the need for explosives or a five minute prerecorded badly acted introduction skit. In this case less is always more and as a singer I have to give it up to them for being able to still throw it down showing everyone how it’s done. Below is my top 10 live of 2011 list and the top 5 honorable mentions. Each artist, group or band are at the top of the game when it comes to making those records come to life on the stage, electrifying audiences globally.

Thank you to everyone I have worked with over the few years, lets hope we have some amazing times again this  year! And a humongous THANK YOU goes out to YOU! The FridaeTV audience worldwide, it’s all because of you I am fortunate enough to interview, photograph, film and review some of the most talented in this small yet so vast entertainment world. Thank you to everyone for actually caring about this budding little publication and I appreciate all of your continued support! Wishing you all a miraculous 2012! Much Love xxoooo ~ Fridae
