Amel Larrieux performing at City Winery ATL

Check out exclusive photos from Amel Larrieux's recent concert at City Winery Atlanta. The former lead singer of the 90s R&B Soul Duo, Groove Theory, played the newest intimate concert venue for two sold-out performances. The ageless beauty, whose voice still sounds incredible, performed songs based on Twitter requests and audience suggestions. Larrieux's quartet also featured her oldest daughter, Sky Larrieux, on keys and acoustic guitar.

Her set list included “Give Up Something,” “Amazing Grace,” “If I Were A Bell,” “Searching for My Soul” and “Infinite Possibilities.”  She also performed a medley of Prince tunes including “I Would Die For You,” “Pop Life” and “Paisley Park.”  Larrieux considered the late music icon one of her mentors and regrets that she “didn’t get to properly say goodbye.”

She closed out her nearly two-hour show with “Don’t Let Me Down,” which was featured in the film “Beyond the Lights,” “Make Me Whole,” “Get Up” and the crowd favorite “Tell Me.” Her encore performance was Chaka Khan's disco/funk anthem “I Know You, I Live You.”
