It was a great time this past weekend at The Cutting Room NYC! I had such a blast performing with such an amazing band: Shoutout to Nate Jones on bass, Walt on guitar, Divine on Keys, Kamaala for always being the dopest background singer a gal could ask for.
While I did mostly songs and poems from my album, AIM HIGH, the biggest treat in my opinion was closing the show with Pharrell's "Happy." People were on their feet jamming and clapping and singing along. It was simply great having so many people there showing love!
Here are some pictures:

As we prepare for the release of the AMAZING video for "DAMN NEAR" (to be premiered on August 15th, the same day as my HUGE show at Aloft Brooklyn), here are the final lyrics to it.
This is definitely one of my favorite songs on my album AIM HIGH.
You've been the spring in my step
7 months of intimate breaths
You said I'm the one but not yet
(You might be my next regret)
Priority to me
Yet you can't say the same for me
Sayin what will be will be
(Like we don't shape our own destinies)
Baby, you said I'm damn near your everything
As if damn near is comforting
Got my heart on string
On your words dangling
Given you the world
I don't understand
Why I'm not your girl
And you're not my man
But I'm damn near it
Ain't that some...
Damn near (4x)
"Tired of orbiting around your love but never landing/ Made you my galaxy/ Thought our stars would come crashing together but/ you got me drifting./ You know what..."
My patience is running thin
You say wait but I don't think I can
Asking me to give you all of me
(Like getting half of you should make me happy)
You say what did I expect
Well we didn't DAMN NEAR have sex
My heart you didn't damn near protect
You're just another regret
And I'm supposed to act like it's all fine
When damn near's just a freaking waste of my time
Damn near doesn't even make you mine
This is it, it's the last time I settle for…
Ooh, I want it all baby (repeat 8x)
Collecting broken women to make yourself whole
This type of game I pray gets old
This kinda love, you can't afford
It's high risk but high reward
