Philly's Own : Nadjah
She's already performed at THE APOLLO in Harlem, NYC. Won 1st place the first time around, and placed 3rd on her last visit.
As we know, 3rd time is the charm!! :) She'll be performing live and on stage at the Apollo theater again on Jun 24th.
For those that don't know.... The Apollo theater is where many African American RnB artists are "made" or broken.
The other day when we were on location in Philly for a photog shoot, I asked her how this felt.... to perform at the Apollo in front of a tough New York City crowd. She just casually acted like it was no big deal :)
Can u imagine... bein on that stage..... 5 boroughs of NYC residents converged in one place ready to eat you alive if you show any sign of weakness? I'm sure you've seen it on formerly televised shows.
Anyways, she's stood that challenge and continues to strive for singing excellence.
You'll be able to catch a live performance closer to home next weekend (in the Philadelphia metro area) at THE REBEL restaurant in Wilmington Delaware. Click on the link for more details... or follow her on her MySpace page at http://myspace.com/nadjahsings
She's tryin to reach the 100,000 plays mark so the major labels will even "look" at her . So just open up her MySpace in a separate window and let her bless your ears, so she'll get a full credit listen.
Don't worry, it's not the electronically processed vocals you may be accustomed to hearing :) She has a strong pure voice....and won't make "diva" excuses if you ask her to sing on the drop of a dime
Be sure to follow her on Twitter also Twitter @Nadjahsings
