The 9th annual Jazz In The Gardens music festival went down this past weekend at Sunlife Stadium in Miami, Florida. The two-day event, hosted by DL Hughley, featured some of the biggest stars in R&B and Jazz, including Kelly Rowland, Trey Songz, Jamie Foxx, Anthony Hamilton, Mint Condition, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly and more!
Some of the celebrity guests in attendance were actor and civil rights icon Harry Belafonte and comedian Kevin Hart, who introduced his pal Trigga.
One of the biggest surprises of the Saturday night performances was when Kelly brought out rapper Nelly to perform their Grammy-winning hit “Dilemma.”
“I asked [Nelly] to stop here, and he came by. I’m just so happy that it was a surprise,” Rowland told TheGrio. “I kept it a surprise because I wanted to do something special for Miami. I live here, so I have to.”
Jamie Foxx had some surprises of his own in store for the Miami crowd as well. He brought out R&B general Tank to sing a few of his own hits including “Please Don’t Go,” and join Foxx in a singing battle. But, Jamie really had everyone’s attention when he gave out $5,000 to the best female audience member who was willing to come on stage and show off her twerk moves.
