Kehlani

Another day, another show. Day 3 of the Red Bull Sound Select: 30 Days in Chicago festival was all about singer-songwriter Kehlani! In Chicago’s Uptown area at the Riviera Theatre, R&B/Pop songstress graced the stage in front of a sold out audience. It was definitely a different crowd compared to the Young Thug show, with young women and girls being the main concertgoers. That didn’t change the overall atmosphere though; people were going crazy for Kehlani at every corner of the Riviera.

You definitely get a sense of community when going to a Kehlani show. She was sure to let everyone know her show was indeed a safe space for us all. Let's not forget the all female lineup which included 2 performers of the LGBTQ+ community! 

Kehlani performed hits Gangsta, CRZY, and Distraction. Y'all know she couldn't just come to Chicago without also performing her song The Way featuring Chance the Rapper. Needless to say, the crowd went wild! All in all, I'd say it was a great show to commence the first week of concerts for the Red Bull Sound Select Presents: 30 Days in Chicago festival.
