Marsha Ambrosius | Live at SOBs


Last night was Marsha Ambrosius’ birthday & the former Floetry songstress celebrated it with a performance at SOBs in NYC. When we arrived an hour before the “Evening of R&B/British Soul,” the line was already down the block. Although we heard (through the Twittervine) that the show was sold out, we weren’t expecting such a massive crowd so early!

With the help of special guests, The Roots, Marsha performed popular singles “Getting Late” & “Say Yes” from Floetry’s 2002 debut album, Floetic. Crowd participation was the night’s theme as fans tried to out sing Marsha. Accompanied by her keyboard, The Songstress sat down and performed a song that she introduced with “I’m over him now… you caught feelings for your friend. Ick!” Thanks to a certain site, Marsha later replied to Melissa’s question about the song’s title saying: “[it’s] “We’re Done” :) The ‘its over’ song on my album :)”

Throughout her musical journey, from group member to solo artist, Ambrosius has lent her skills to others in the music world. Not only has the British singer-songwriter penned songs for many, including Michael Jackson & Alicia Keys, she has also made her rounds as a guest vocalist. Of her many duets, Marsha performed the salacious track “Freak’in Me” from Jamie Foxx’s latest album, Intuition.

At the end of the night, Ambrosius switched gears and performed her self-professed favorite Michael Jackson song, “I Can’t Help It.” She closed the show with what Michael Jackson deemed his favorite song on his Invincible album, “Butterflies,” which Marsha wrote.

The show seemed short, but it was definitely sweet. Those that arrived fashionably late at 10:45 expecting to see a show and heard: “The show is over & the kitchen is closed,” missed out on a great performance.

    I just KNOW "We're Done" is going to be in constant rotation once her album drops.
