Shanti Das, Marlon Nichols and ASCAP Heat Up ATL Live on the Park “Ladies Night” Edition

The May edition of ATL Live in the Park was a hit as music lovers flooded Park Tavern at Piedmont Park in Atlanta. ASCAP hosted a special “Ladies Night” edition of the popular music series that boasted a few of their best female performers including vocalist, Mylah who performed two tracks off her upcoming EP, Tyler Perry’s House of Payne alum, Demetria McKinney who gave her own rendition of Drunk In Love followed by two singles from her upcoming EP 'Officially Yours', and Grammy Award-winning songwriter Crystal Nicole who sang a few stanzas from classics by R&B divas including “You Don’t Know My Name” by Alicia Keys, “Love Shoulda Brought You Home” by Toni Braxton, “That Thing” by Lauryn Hill, and “Love All Over Me”, a ballad performed by Monica and written by Crystal Nicole herself.

Kenny Burns returned to host the show alongside DJ Trauma and the house band, Quinn and Jukebox.

As always,there were a few extra crowd pleasers added when Demetria McKinney sang her new song “100” which featured ATL's beloved Da Brat. The rapper later returned to the stage to indulge in a snippet of her classic, “So Funkdafied”. No one would ever say no to an impromptu performance from the beautiful KeKe Wyatt! Once she hit the stage, the crowd was treated to a vocally stunning show of her single “Fall in Love” off her new self-titled EP followed by a jazzy performance of her classic remake of “If Only You Knew”.

This is how you do ladies night! 

But wait...Shanti Das and Marlon Nichols were not done yet - after Wyatt wrapped her act, the sultry and smooth R&B great, Joe shocked the audience by taking the stage and performing two of his greatest hits, “All the Things Your Man Won’t Do” and “I Wanna Know”. Before exiting, Joe thanked the audience for “showing R&B love” and promoted his upcoming album, 'Bridges', that will be hitting stores on June 3rd. Although, he's not a lady (he's all man) performer, Joe’s surprise serenade proved to be the cherry on top of this month’s sweet “Ladies Night” edition of ATL Live on the Park.
