Subculture, one of the hottest music venues in New York City was jam packed Monday evening with natives, anxiously excited to see the lovely and talented singer, songwriter, and pianist Avery Sunshine. The Pennsylvania native blessed the stage with her humor, angelic smile, and last but not least her voice at the intimate venue. Sunshine’s voice left everyone breathless because she sang with so much fervor and vigor especially when she sang, “Ugly Part of Me,” “I Got Sunshine,” “Blessin’ Me,” “Time to Shine,” “See You When I Get There,” and of course her signature hit, ‘Call My Name.” Her voice captivated everyone’s attention because it was a mixture of Patti, Aretha, Chaka, and Anita Baker but it was still original.
You can tell that Sunshine really honors and appreciates her God-given talent because her voice can brighten up the room. Sunshine’s voice, stage presence, and words of encouragement reminded us why it’s essential to establish an intimate relationship with the audience while they’re performing on stage. Sunshine was so engaging and empathetic at the same time because she was so humbled by everyone that took the time out to see her perform live on stage. After her segment ended, the audience shouted out her name profusely because she did what she was set out to do which is be a sweet fragrance in someone’s life.
