The unity brought together through sound is one of the most beautiful organic things to witness, especially when that sound has been shared and amplified from the instrument within, The Voice! Elle Varner has that raw gifted vocal ability that creates the resonating blissful ora music lovers can’t always explain but are all drawn in by. With Elle Varner effortlessly leading the melody over wonderfully aligned chord progressions, an intriguing element was created and mentally reached an intellect that synced DC’s Howard Theatre’s large crowd’s vibe and sway, as if choreographed!
Knowing that Elle Varner is a musically gifted and educated, Grammy Award Winning Singer/Songwriter and Musician, it was exciting and refreshing to everyone in the building to see her command the stage in all her glory, with the gift of new music off of her New Album entitled: ELLEVATION! She did not come to play with us, as it was her 1st tour stop for this awesome album. Equipped with a very talented four piece band featuring: Dave Drake on Keys, Andy Bianco on Guitar, Sheldon Goode Jr. on Drums and LeShawn Thomas on Bass, she made sure to remind us of why we all fell in love with her in the first place! Check her out performing her newest hit single: “Kinda Love”
With a flawless, very interactive stage presence, she sashayed back and forth, making sure to captivate each fan’s full attention. Elle Varner was so comfortable on stage, she took her stilettos off during her performance of “Refill”, and treated us like family. There was even a little girl who she put some shine on that ended up having her government name, spelled the same way and all “Gabrielle”.
As beautiful as Elle Varner already is, inside and out, there was gratitude all over her face as we all embraced her very deserving accomplishment of releasing and performing this new album ELLEVATION that she put her heart and soul into. Everyone was so elated that the standing ovation and chanting of her name went on after she ended and exited the stage. She thankfully came back out, took fan requests and gave us an encore where she performed her favorite song “Wishing Well Feat. Rapsody” off of ELLEVATION and “Not Tonight” from her first album “PERFECTLY IMPERFECT”.
Elle Varner is well versed in her craft and naturally versatile within genres. So, we here at Concert Daily will be looking out for all of the greatness pouring out of this extremely talented young woman, and even will hope to look forward to some collaborations across genres in the future (Wink, wink!). We encourage everyone to support Elle Varner’s new EP ELLEVATION, past projects and her journey overall because she is one to always watch and have in your playlists! To further prove our point we want to leave you with her dope music video for “Pour Me” featuring DC’s Own Wale.
