New York, NY–The arctic chill whistling through the Hudson skyline Tuesday evening illuminating the Christmas décor unveiled its crisp aura affirming the most wonderful time of the year would soon to be near.
On a night this brisk the craving of a cozy warm lit fire would be the perfect remedy unless you were fortunate to hear the unblemished sound of a voice so delectable any person would succumb to its ardor, that of which was the ever so attractive Marsha Ambrosius.
Since her inception as one half of multi Grammy Award winning Neo-Soul duo Floetry in the late 90’s, this amazing English singer-songwriter and producer extraordinaire has cultivated as a successful solo artist while collaborating with some of the biggest names in both R&B and Hip-Hop genres.
Born in Liverpool, England Ambrosius’s first love prior to music was that of basketball playing from early childhood. It was the mutual interest for the sport that introduced her to Floetry partner Natalie Stewart leading them both to the BRIT School for Performing and Technology and ultimately becoming one of the hottest Neo-Soul groups in the industry.
Formulating a ten year bond, the gifted floacist and songstress began performing in local London venues under debut name Nat and Marsh eventually finding the perfect fit in the thriving genre’s city of Philly changing their moniker and embarking towards acoustic success.
After releasing two studio albums, scoring a Top 40 hit with smash single “Say Yes” while earning five Grammy nominations, the group went on hiatus later reuniting on tour in 2015 which was short lived.
Marsha’s cowritten collaboration with the late King of Pop Michael Jackson on “Butterflies” was the onset to her stardom. Her debut solo album Late Nights & Early Mornings rose at number two on the US Billboard chart selling nearly 100,000 copies in its first week. Her second release Friends & Lovers also debuted number two on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop album chart.
This evening, the enchanting goddess performed an outstanding setlist of smash hits like “With You“, “Late Night Early Morning“, “I Want You To Stay“, phenomenal collabo “Butterflies“, and fire single “Hope She Cheats On You (With A Basketball Player)” off of 2011’s Late Nights & Early Mornings captivating the sold out crowd.
Serenading sweet notes to renditions of “Real Love“, “Bonita“, and “Song Cry“, the sensual siren ignited fans on “Far Away“, “Lose Myself“, “Your Hands“, “Getting Late” and signature hit “Say Yes” bringing her tantalizing outro to a close.
With over twenty-five years in the music game, this raw talented beauty continues to shine flawlessly in her craft. For more information on Marsha Ambrosius tour dates and locations, visit: livenation.com, and ticketmaster.com.
