Musiq Soulchild performed to a packed house of more than 600 at The Howard Theatre last night. Singer-songwriter Avery Sunshine opened for him with a few popular melodies from Anita Baker and D’Angelo as well as her own single “All In My Head.”
Fans sang along with Musiq as he sampled hits from his six albums, keeping to upbeat and soulful jams as well as his soft and smooth ballads.
Before closing out the show with a favorite of one certain DC Music Live writer, he thanked his fans for sticking with him in a time when “his kind of music” isn’t always popular. He promoted his new book, 143 Relationships According to Musiq, and began to sing “Mary Go Round” to the tune of the Roy Ayers classic “Everybody Loves the Sunshine.”
