Season 2 of the popular ATL LIVE ON THE PARK showcase series, hosted by Kenny Burns and founded by Shanti Das and Marlon Nichols, kicked off last night at Park Tavern with R&B veterans Jagged Edge headlining an unforgettable show.

Newcomers Winston Warrior, Stephani Parker and Xavier Lewis (winner of the Georgia Lottery's All Access Music Search) opened the show before JE hit the stage and thrilled the crowd with classics such as "Let's Get Married," "I Gotta Be" and "Where the Party At." Kelly Price even surprised the audience with an impromptu performance of her single "Tired."
