I’ve been following songstress, writer, and artist Andra Day since last year after I found out she was the voice behind the song “Rise Up” from the Dr. Dre Beats commercial I kept seeing featuring Serena Williams. I heard about the Cheers To The Fall tour dates through a newsletter update and saw Andra was hitting Philly during my birthday month of November. So I thought to myself “why not treat myself” to her performance at Union Transfer. Even though it was last minute I went a head and got my tickets ant way. I didn’t get any good images while I was there because I was too busy being swept away by all the melodies, instruments and lights but the show was nothing short of amazing! The sister duo Chloe X Halle, Beyonce’s newest Park Wood Entertainment artists, opened up the show with songs from their Sugar Symphony EP and had the crowd rocking with their eclectic style. Andra Day went all in on that stage with her soulful voice and her classic feminine style to match! I highly suggest seeing her live but check out her videos in the meantime until a tour date comes close to your home town!
