Soul in the City Featuring Sunshine Anderson
When Sunshine Anderson released her last album, The Sun Shines Again, she had reason for trepidation. Although she was used to success under the management of Macy Gray, with her near-platinum-selling debut album, Your Woman, and the breakout hit “Heard it All Before,” it had been over three years since she’d put out a single. Since then the R&B chanteuse’s life had run into some turbulence, steadying only with the help of marriage and motherhood. But those pains and joys proved to be the bricks that would build a comeback. Sunshine’s return-to-form retro-soul single “Lie to Kick It” didn’t make a humble debut—it blew up like a bull in a firecracker shop. The hit became the number one most added song to R&B/Adult Contemporary Radio, leaving new singles by Eric Benet, Usher, and R. Kelly in its wake. For Sunshine, it was a rapturous vindication, and an indication of the sweet soul jams to come.
For the Soul in the City concert series, Sunshine lives up to her name, lighting the stage with the wattage only true soul divas and macho incandescent bulbs can muster. Sweet, sexy, and emotionally charged, she lures audiences into her sway as she bellows and purrs through all of her greatest and latest hits. But before she takes the stage, the B.B. King’s Blues Club house band, Genre, and local artist Jet heat up the mic. Afterward, a post-show party featuring DJ Lee and DJ Ronnie Mac keeps the city soul rolling until 2 a.m.<p>
