Its January 21st at the Mosaic Temple Theatre in Detroit, the night of Sam Smith’s Concert. Opening up by special request from the “stay with me” crooner himself is Jazmine Sullivan standing radiantly in front of thousands of screaming fans. Lights of every color luminously gleam the stage showing the statuesque silhouette of the belting beauty. Cries of “I love you Jazmine” echo from the balcony. She looks up with a humbled smile of appreciation sweeping the hair from across her face. The first guitar rift of “forever Dosen’t last” begin to play and hands everywhere go flying in the air as if they caught the holy-ghost in church on Sunday morning. She begins spilling out her heart with every lyric, splashing pure passion with every ad-lib, leaving us drenched in emotions. By the end of her set the crowd is in awe from amazement which is Jazmine Sullivan.
Learning from her previous breakup the window shattering diva made the wise decision to pick up the pen instead of the crowbar. Breaking out hits instead of car windows saves the song bird not only jail time but resentment towards her ex allowing her to grow by understand her self worth; thus giving her the idea for the empowering self reflective hem entitled “Masterpiece”.
Back in the limelight after a dark duration, jazzy teaches us a valuable lesson that you can but be hurt but not hindered. Facing the highs & lows of love and the lashings of life, somehow, someway, we can get through it. With a new album and U.S tour on the way we can expect much more from ballad blowing bombshell.
