On Monday, January 23rd from 7:30pm to 8:30pm EST, South Auditorium, MWI Backstage Pass introduces the amazing Jully Black up close and personal. Watch and listen to Canada’s Queen of R&B perform some of her original songs and talk about performing, songwriting and her experiences in the music business.
NEW update: YoungPete from Atlanta, GA, to attend as Jullys’ special guest.
This Canadian-born, triple-threat (singer /songwriter /performer) loves to share her talents and has an enthusiasm for music that is unparalleled. Her charming attitude and charismatic personality has helped propel her career and reach milestones that most artists struggle to achieve in a lifetime – opening for Kanye West in Singapore, being hand-picked to perform for the Queen, headlining the opening ceremonies at the 2010 Winter Olympics, winning multiple Juno awards, penning songs for the likes of Missy Elliot, Nas and Destiny’s Child as well as performing alongside artists such as Jay-Z, Sean Paul, Kardinal Offishall and Alicia Keys.
Her new, soon to be released album, entitled (8)IGHT, boasts a fresh, energetic and soulful sound, something that has been described as “the future of soul”. Traditionally, Jully is from the school of R&B, with influences like Lauren Hill & Tina Turner, she has combined these sounds with the super futuristic beats and rhythms provided by the album’s sole producer YoungPete Alexander and the funky creative writing and arrangement skills of Luther Brown.
