VIDEO & PICS: Brandy, Elle Varner & Luke James at the Global Fusion Festival Event Recap

Singer Elle Varner
This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the 6th annual Global Fusion Festival in Philadelphia. With performances from singers Brandy, Elle Varner, Kendrick Lamar, Kenny Lattimore and Luke James the concert was one not to miss. The concert at Penn Plaza is part of the PECO Multicultural festival celebrating Philadelphia's Africa Diaspora, Hispanic, Caribbean and Asian cultures. And the best part of it all? It was FREE! Check out the pics and video of the  exciting show:
Elle posed with fans 
The crowd of over 30,000 people mobbed Elle Varner as soon as she stepped off the stage creating a frenzy at the festival. By the way, did you know that Elle's family has Cape Verdian roots? Well hello my African sister :) I found this out plus more in my one on one interview with the J Records/Sony Music singer. Make sure you guys go cop her album on August 7th!
Brandy in the press conference area- she did her own makeup for the show
How much do I love B-Rocka?? Brandy has been a friend in my head since the early 1990's. I remember buying her album and listening to her hits "Baby", "Best Friend" and "Broken Hearted" for hours upon hours. Needless to say I was SUPER excited to see her bring it onstage. She performed all of her old hits plus new songs and had the crowd rocking. In her press conference backstage the very charismatic Brandy talked about promising Whitney Houston that she would dedicate her life to music. Answering questions from various members of press she also discussed having a solid family structure with "normal " friends and of course finding love with her beau Ryan Press.  Ryan was backstage and because he is from Philly, I know the show must have been extra special for the couple. How sweet! Her album is coming out October 2nd and I cant wait to go buy it!
Luke James in the press conference area
"I Want You" singer Luke James also ripped the stage. That boy can SANG! Remember he opened up for Beyonce a few weeks ago at Revel?  Luke is incredibly talented!

Check out the video of Brandy performing her hit "Put It Down" featuring Chris Brown
