 Last night’s ATL LIVE ON THE PARK – produced by Shanti Das and Marlon Nichols and presented by Gentleman Jack – was like a family reunion of R&B stars. Headlined by vocal powerhouse Kelly Price, the popular Atlanta music showcase at Park Tavern included attendees such as Tyrese, Pebbles, Q Parker (112), Brandon Casey (Jagged Edge), Nicci Gilbert (Brownstone), Dondria and Anthony David.

Industry legend Andre Harrell was on hand to introduce his new group Hamilton Park (who sang their hearts out!), while soul singer Noel Gourdin seduced the ladies with his single “Beautiful” and “American Idol” alum Anoop Desai gave a crowd-moving rendition of Blackstreet‘s classic “Don’t Leave Me.” In true Kelly Price fashion, the talented diva slayed the audience with heart-stopping renditions of “As We Lay” and her current single “Tired.” She ended the show with her original classic “Friend of Mine” (with a little help from Q Parker on “Mr. Biggs”‘ part).


Additional attendees included: Tim Davies (Radio One GM), Hurricane Dave (Hot 107.9 PD), Bill Black (Hot 107.9 Asst PD), producer legend Eddie F, Takeo Spikes (San Francisco 49ers), Mike Kyser (President, Black MusicAtlantic Records), Joi Pitts (VP, Marketing – Atlantic Records), Sydney Margetson (VP, Publicity – Atlantic Records), Michael Mauldin (Mauldin Brand Agency), author/activist Jeff Johnson, Dionnee Harper (Atlantic Records), Coriya Murray (Radio One), Angela Fowler (Radio One), Wayne Brown (Who’s Who Publishing), Jovita Moore (WSB TV), Paula Witt (BET/”The Mo’Nique Show”), Diamond Morgan (BET/”The Mo’Nique Show”), Karen Thames (BET/”The Mo’Nique Show”), DJ Trauma and celeb hairstylist Nataki Minix.
