Janelle is the new face of Covergirl and she is on tour to promote her new album, The Electric Lady, which you definitely need to pick up if you haven't already! Pick it up on Amazon:
The excitement was definitely building outside the entrance of the theatre while we were waiting to get in, The billboard changes very rapidly but I was able to nab a shot of the sign announcing Janelle before it switched again to other shows:
|Outside the legendary Apollo Theatre in New York City for the Janelle Monae 'Electric Tour'|
of course Mama Butterfly and I wanted to take a picture before we even sat down:
|Left: ME! Ascending Butterfly Right: Mama Butterfly inside the legendary Apollo Theatre in Harlem, NYC|
We got there super early as you can tell and they hadn't even started setting up yet so we got some time to ham it up and check out the theatre!
The excitement was definitely starting to build as the band started setting up!
|Check out 'Mini Janelle'!|
Everyone just had to stop and snap pictures with a super cute little girl that was dressed up like Janelle!

You could literally feel the floor beneath you vibrating as concert goers jumped up when Janelle took the stage, everyone was jumping and dancing and it's like the floor had come alive beneath your feet!
|Janelle was definitely bringing her 'A' Game!|
|My inner Fashionista was totally digging this outfit! The Jacket! Those Boots! YES!!!|
|The confetti was flying and it felt like New Years Eve!|
|The Electric Lady was definitely bringing it!|
|You know we were all singing along with her!|
|No one was ready for Janelle and the band to take a bow, we wanted MORE!|
|I had to let Janelle know how much I enjoyed the show!|
|How do artists keep straight which camera to focus on?|
|Now that's better, you can now see the whole Apollo sign in the background!|
Even Mama Butterfly got in on the Meet and Greet Fun!
The last time I did a concert in New York City with a VIP Meet and Greet was for John Legend, so I was super excited to get to do another one! Janelle truly delivered, it was an amazing concert and her new album has 20 songs and she is joined on some tracks by some amazing artists including Prince (yes THE Prince), Miguel, Erykah Badu, Solange, as well as Esperanza Spalding (who I love, love, love by the way) on an expansive double disc set.
Serving Face? Indeed Butterflies, that's why she is the face of Covergirl! She tore it up at the Apollo! Thanks Covergirl, I will never forget this concert!
"Even if it makes others uncomfortable, I will love who I am" ~Janelle Monae, on the track Q.U.E.E.N. featuring Erykah Badu, check out the official video below:
