Masala featuring Philip 7 to Open For John Legend at Wildey Gymnasium
Best known for the popular single “Beautiful Surprise” Philip 7 and the band MASALA have been making waves locally, regionally, internationally and will continue do so when they open the John Legend concert.
Having just returned from showcasing at NACA (National Association of Campus Activities) in Missouri, and SXSW: South by South West in Austin Texas, where they were also featured live on the leading television network station FOX 7, they were selected as the sole opening act for the John Legend concert at the Sir Garfield Sobers Complex on the 10th May, 2011.
In anticipation of their performance, Philip 7 and the band have been hard at work putting together the production for the upcoming show. They are determined to make this performance unforgettable for all those attending. Lead vocalist, Philip 7 says, “…he’s very excited and honored to share the stage with such a musical icon”, and that “the entire band is very excited about this opportunity, and we intend to give our best ever performance.”
Tony Hoyos, one of the organisers of the upcoming John Legend concert advised, “It wasn’t a difficult selection to make, because not only are they an excellent band but they are one of the few acts on the island which plays original music in pop, rock, alternative and reggae!”
