History of Freestyle Music 2014
- Why the name is right: the evening features the bands and personalities who invented freestyle, playing the original songs that made them famous
- Why the name is wrong: freestyle music isn’t in the past—the genre continues to influence artists today
- How you know Lisa Lisa: as an early innovator in the New York freestyle scene, and for such hits as “Can You Feel the Beat” and “All Cried Out”
- How TKA/K7 gets the crowd moving: by singing “Louder Than Love,” “Give Your Love to Me,” and “Maria,” and instructing the crowd to dance until someone guesses correctly what the letters in their name stand for
- Where you’ve seen Corina, besides onstage: in the film An East Side Story, alongside Marc Anthony
- When vocalist Cynthia began her career: at age 16
- Most upbeat George Lamond jam, despite repeated lyrics about being thrown in a gutter: “Bad of the Heart”
- Windy City acts: Fast Eddie, an architect of the Chicago house movement, and rapper White Knight
