Summer Stage 6/17/2012: Rahzel, Questlove, Black Thought, and Groove Theory

Every summer, NYC's City Parks Foundation has FREE concerts in various parks in New York City and the surrounding areas. Yesterday, Rahzel, Questlove, Black Thought, and Groove Theory performed at Central Park. Questlove did a DJ set, while Black Thought and Rahzel performed a few songs over various instrumentals.  Below is The Roots "The Fire" over the Otis beat (WTT). Rahzel backs him up with a bit of beat boxing.

Apparently this was the FIRST Groove Theory performance in 16 years. Amel brought her beautiful daughter Sky (who is also her background singer) and she sounds amazing! Like a younger version of Amel, still raw but powerful. The video below is of Amel performing D'Angelo's "Lady" and then going  into Faith Evan's "You Use to Love Me."
