Dawn Richard Performs Live at the House of Blues in L.A.

Dawn Richard

“Ya’ll ready to dance?” asked Dawn Richard as she commanded the stage at the House of Blues in West Hollywood on Thursday night on PJ Morton’s tour.

During the 30-minute set, the former Danity Kane member thrilled with cuts off her EP Armor On including “Save Me From U” and “Change,” Dirty Money’s “Ass on the Floor,” and crowd-pleasing covers of Prince’s “I Would Die 4 U” and “Purple Rain.”

She served up her own remixes to Frank Ocean’s “Novacane” and Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “Ni**as in Paris,” closing with her Druski-produced single “Bombs.”

Watch Dawn’s explosive set below.

    I see it.

    I’ve been waiting for her to do this and she finally did. She stopped “performing” for a large audience and walked out like she was about to just have an “intimate” ball and entertain. And entertain she did.

    I loved the intro and the live vocal. I’d love to see her interact with the band and get them involved with the audience too. Her music gives off building an army of dreamers, thinkers and the faithful. Its inspiring and a really big deal.

    why do these females feel the neccessity to wear skimpy outfits? can’t their fans appreciate them when they are fully dressed?

    i am happy my faves (adele, lauryn hill, alicia keys and india arie) don’t feel the need to go skimpy for fame

    Dawn has always been an amazing performer, and has always stood out while performing with DK. She’s always been a strong dancer, and vocalist (while dancing) on stage.

    @yuppitsme, The simple fact that your favourite track was the much like the current bragadocious, generic Hiphip/R&B tracks I would not expect you to get into her or what she’s trying to do.

    Scripture, Faith, Heaven damn the intro..you got nothing? really?

    Eve Reply:

    @yuppitsme, I guess she should autotune, lip synch, and have her voice digitally altered so she will be great to you huh?

    This woman has a powerful voice and incredible talent and is doing what most artists don’t do which is SANG and entertain.

    She is the best thing out an…. You notice now everyonewants to dance in their videos after this girl goes hard on that Bomb video. Trust me she is setting the bar high watch how artist slowly take notice. Watch,.. Where other artists can either sing well … They just sing can’t dance… Where other artist dance.. They aren’t the best vocally… Where artist sing well or dance they don’t write their records…. SHE DOES IT ALL… Before you hate really think about that shit.

    Dawn is the real deal. It’s sad that someone of her caliber doesn’t have it as easy as the Rihanna’s, Katy’s and Nicki’s. She’s what you call an all-around entertainer. We are lacking performers post-2004.

    @Lisa, Her situation was different than theirs, that’s why. She’s just now being able to shine on her own. I felt she was held back. And now it’s starting to pay off.

    She murdered her live performance. The girl can do it all. The skies the limit for her.
