On Wednesday, August 13th, at DC's Bar 7, Multi-Grammy Award Nominated Singer, Songwriter and Producer "Tank" had a listening party for his new CD "Stronger". The event was powered by Hennessy, and featured free hor d'eouvres and open Hennessy bar, can you say "Good Stuff"!!
I have attended many events that brought out the celebrities, as well as some Elite, Powerful, Professionals, however this event had a different aura. As I arrived to the event and walked inside, I noticed the dim lighting and it had a very chill laid back type vibe. The media was then directed downstairs, as we patiently waited for Tank to arrive.
Upon arrival, Tank was extremely welcoming and smiling from ear to ear, you could tell that he was extremely excited about his new project. Media was granted a few minutes one on one with him to ask him a few questions, and then he took a break to return upstairs to start the listening party.
Along with a very supportive crowd, Tank's good friend Raheem Davaughn also came out to show his support. As the evening went along, one of the first tracks that was played at the party was my favorite song "You're My Star". I can personally listen to this song over and over again. Not only are the words music to my soul, but the track makes me want to dance and is true feel good music! As a host on an online radio show, we hear all types of music and to be honest it has been a long time since I have heard good music like this, truly takes me back.
After Tank played a few of his tracks he proceeded back downstairs where he finished doing interviews. Each interview he gave the same enthusiasm as he did before, which I know can be extremely exhausting after you have been asked a zillion questions. His attitude and openness really made me like him more as an artist.
As a HUGE music fan I have always liked Tank's music, I enjoyed him in the group TGT but I always felt that he was better by himself as an artist, and am extremely happy to see him doing his own thing again! If I had to rate the CD (from the tracks I heard) I would definitely give it a 10. I have my eyes and ears glued to what's next for this wonderful artist by the name of......"Tank".
"Stronger is in stores NOW, you can also download it from Itunes. Video "You're My Star" is on Centric and is currently amongst the top 10 at the Adult R&B outlets nationwide.
