Live Performance of the Week: Chris Turner sings "There's No Way" at Date Night NYC

Background singers never get enough credit. You don't really hear about them in the blogs or really see them in videos. Very seldom, the headlining artist will even give them a chance to show their skill on stage. One of the good things about the Date Night concert series is that they focus on bringing the unknowns to the light, providing a platform for them to showcase their skill, and gain new fans. So when Chris Turner was asked to headline the most recent installment, he was able to have his moment.

So when Chris Turner was asked to headline the most recent installment, he was able to have his moment.

The Bay Area bred,  NYC-based crooner received his first opportunity to not only show an eager crowd what his voice can do, but to headline an event and hold his own. Backed by the LRC Funk band, Turner sang everything from Sade to his own recent releases from the Love Life Is A Challenge project. Here is a video of his performance for "There's No Way" at Date Night NYC. You can almost feel the intimacy that was shared in the room while he was singing. Check it out!

 

About Date Night NYC:

Date Night NYC, a quarterly concert series held at DROM, was created by Keya Maeesha out of a need to see intimacy in music form brought live to audiences who enjoy it. The purpose of the Date Night series is three-fold: 1) To ignite intimacy between artist and audience, 2) To create a space for music lovers to enjoy company and intimacy in music form, and 3) To provide a platform where the unknowns can rock with the "knowns" of the indie industry. The vibe is sultry and intimate, promising a night of beautiful music and a rekindled flame to romance.
