Last night Savanna and I had the chance to go and see two queens live – Mahalia and Hamzaa at Mahalia’s sold out Roundhouse show 25/11/19.
Hamzaa supported Mahalia on her UK tour and it was a delight to finally see her perform ‘Sunday Morning’ live – especially seeing the crowd sing it back to her word for word. She is something special!
The show was a walk through Mahalia’s latest album ‘Love and Compromise’ with surprise appearances from Little Simz on ‘Proud of Me’ and Kojey Radical on ‘One Night Only’. From 9pm till close she conversed with the crowd giving insights about her life and the reasoning behind the songs on Love and Compromise; an album that i’m sure everyone could relate to…
Seeing her perform ‘Sober’, the song that essentially kick started her career was very surreal for everyone in the room as you could just notice the growth she has had since then. To finishing the show with ‘I Wish I Missed My Ex’ where every single person in the room new the words was something else!
Mahalia decided to round up the show by encouraging 3000 people to register to vote while highlighting the importance of it – I thought this was HUGE!
Mahalia’s presence on stage was honestly something else. She truly did show us what she CAN do and also what is yet to come! The last show of the 30 date tour was something special to experience.
