Monica, Tank and Yuna perform at Soul Train Weekend “Acoustically Speaking” Concert

The 2016 Soul Train Awards weekend kicked off on Thursday night in Las Vegas as Monica, Tank, and Yuna hit the stage as a part of the “Acoustically Speaking” concert sponsored by Toyota, at the House of Blues Mandalay Bay.

The show kicked off with Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna giving a soulful opening performance of hit songs including “Crush,” which features R&B king, Usher.

Tank then took the stage to a screaming audience of women who were excited to see the R&B hunk perform. He talked about the importance of keeping R&B music alive because it keeps real love alive.

Finally, the night’s headliner, Monica, came out in knee high snake skin boots that had everyone looking twice and talked to host Big Tigger about Black Lives Matter. She talked about how every time a story of police brutality comes out, she sits down and discusses it with her sons and explains what’s happening so that they are informed. She also mentioned that her oldest son took it to heart, so much so that he got in trouble for kneeling during the Star-Spangled banner in class, joking that football players do it during the National Anthem but her son’s heart was in the right place. She then performed new and classic hits that the audience had been waiting for all night, calling for everyone to come to the front of the stage and dance with her as she killed it.

The 2016 Soul Train Awards will take place at the Orleans Area in Las Vegas on Sunday, Nov. 6. The show will air across CENTRIC and BET Networks on Nov. 27 at 8 p.m. ET.

Check out the photos from the “Acoustically Speaking” concert below.

Tank Sings National Anthem, Chris Brown Sits


The drama continues…

On Sunday (Sept. 11), Power 106 held their annual celebrity basketball game in Los Angeles. Inviting R&B powerhouse Tank to kick off the game with the National Anthem, there were a few moments that went down.

With everything happening in sports based on San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick protesting the racial injustices in the country, by choosing to sit instead of stand during “The Star-Spangled Banner,” Tank asked the crowd–since it was the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks–of all days, to stand and sing with him.

“I understand everybody’s exercising their right to stand or sit and exercising their right to freedom and justice,” he said. “But in the wake of 9/11, please understand the fact that real men, women, and children lost their lives for this very thing that we’re able to stand for today.”

It was a nice thought and most of the audience joined in. Except Chris Brown (not surprised), who sat on the court with some fellow teammates and basically just made faces at Tank the entire time. He did show his fellow R&B pal some love when Tank hit applause-worthy notes, but that was about it.

So, it was good to see Tank getting some love with the anthem performance, and on TMZ, but that was all due to their favorite, Chris Breezy, not doing what most folks think he should, is that what he is supposed to do? Not sure… it was 9/11 and all, but to each their own, that’s what makes America great, right?

Anyways, check out Tank’s performance, and Chris’ too below.
