So a few weeks ago my best friend Ayzia and I flew to New Orleans, Louisiana for the weekend. I had tweeted that i would fly to another state to see Kehlani who is currently on tour for the Album she released earlier this year. And so my friend bought tickets for my 21st birthday so we planned a trip around the concert lol. My friend MIchela lives in Louisiana as well but like an hour away from when we were staying and so she drove down Saturday evening before the concert and we all took UBER to the venue. So the venue was called Nola Republic, and it had a wooden bar feel to it was really beautiful.
I got the meet and greet package because now I can afford to buy my self what I want and she is one of my favorite artists so hell ya im going to invest my money in very special experience. She to me embodies everything a dreamer should be. I was 15 when I first heard of her and that was because she had been in a group called poplyfe. I was watching like every other nights but i heard her say Oakland and I was like what that's like a good 15 minutes from where I live. I watched the whole season and have followed her career since. She to me is someone I aspire to be like. Its very rare to find someone who's very empathetic to everyone because not everyone is capable of that. And someone who makes music that makes you feel and relate to the things she's experienced. I haven't been as happy about another artist like this since Justin Bieber and if you ask anyone who knows me knows that I love him not as much as I was at 13 but my appreciation of music has only grown and its dope to be able to tell my kids one day the artists I loved growing up.
I got a few pictures from the concert and ill be showing them below. Music is the healing to the soul and I feel like its amazing how music bring people together. So thank you to Kehlani for showing me I can make it out of the bay to travel the world and work hard dont be afraid to learn something new and take the time for yourself because you can get caught up in life and if you dont put yourself first you'll never be capable of giving someone your all if you dont take time to check in with yourself. So if you get the chance ever to see her in concert go. Its the ultimate experience.
Opening up for her on this tour is: Jahkoy,ella mai, rECENTLY ADDED IS HER GOD SON MARTEEN NOODLES (HER DJ) AND LASTLY KEHLANI
