Whew chile! Jazmine Sullivan brought the house DOWN at the 2020 Soul Train Awards. Stage presence … check. Impeccable styling … check. Powerhouse vocals … triple check!!! The R&B singer absolutely stole the show and dominated Twitter timelines.
Sullivan has long been regarded for her soul-stirring singing, but it was something about Sunday’s performance that catapulted her to near legend status.
Set in the era of segregation, Jazmine’s almost 5-minute show-stopping set opened with effortless runs and rifts while she sang “Lost Ones.” Sullivan then transitioned into her latest single “Pick Up Your Feelings” and set the stage a blaze.
Folks on Twitter hailed Jazmine as an icon in the making…
Jazmine Sullivan is the definition of a SANGER.
