The second night of this Paisley momentum was encouraged by a great wealth of time. LP Music // Long Playing is another way of expressing Leeds and Peterson together. Memories fail me as to the last occasion at Paisley Park where they performed, but this was legendary show nonetheless. The musicianship that belongs to those guys out there is unmatched. They play with such fluent skill, yet you can see how harmonious everyone becomes together. LP Music never missed a beat, and they played with sincere authority! This was only the beginning – with Jazz coming in with a piercing revelation, we are carried to a higher place – not long after we were welcomed to the Luv4OneAnother Room.
Liv Warfield soon took the stage, which lifted all of our souls! The amount of soul and talent this woman possesses is such a thrill to endeavor. So much soul and passion ran through her with a rush of power. We were all in her presence, staring at her gaze and feeling goosebumps all over – when she and her backing singers proved the fire was getting hot. AT one moment, Prince had to run on stage and fan Mama Sae, and Ashley! Haha! We were all treated shortly after that, with an incredible guitar solo Prince gave us. Ryan gladly handed over his axe, which gave Prince full access to travel to the places he can with his guitar! The amazing highlight of the night!
Overall, So much passion and fire led Paisley Park – I can understand the fire right now. Due to the passion and because of the embrace of true soul music, we can thrive into higher and deeper connections. There were more people out Saturday than Friday. The energy of the crowd is what set, the fire in everyone eyes. We were all in hot anticipation and motivation after realizing, we all made it under the same umbrella. None of us knew what to expect and because of this, we were capable of surrendering out fronts and to just receive. Night Two proved to be a night full of passion and blessing. We were understanding what it means to FREE URSELF. Not only because some heard the new, emotive, and climactic song in the studio, but the walls were breaking down. Several times throughout the show, Liv reminded us we should loosen up! We could jump UP and DOWN! We could move around and release all of the tension built up within us! Sooner or later, we were then all carried by the power – responding with passion just exactly who we are. The music and the sound were only beginning to enter into us deeper!
But don’t just settle for what I got to say, some Purple members stayed with me at Perkins, to help convey the magic and power of the night. 😀
Shout-out to Dorothy, Denise, and Nancy!
