|ABIGAIL ENTERTAINS! We first met Abigail in Atlanta at this past years Billboard Dance Music Summit. She wasn't on the official list of attendees, so we were very surprised to find her sitting next to us at one of the seminars! Unfortunately we missed her performance at the closing night party (we couldn't find it or maybe that was intentional!) So when we heard she was coming to South Florida, we jumped at the opportunity to see her live and in action.|
|Anticipating a 1am or so appearance, we were surprised when the bouncer told us she wouldn't be taking the stage until 3 am! (Only Abigail was worth it). Nearly 3 ½ hours later, and 2 drag queen shows (a bitchy drag queen named Electra constantly griping about the lack of ass in South Florida and no tips, we were pained to watch her strut around hurling lots of insults, particularly at us), we headed inside. Making our way to the dance floor proved to be no easy task, as the Copa is a pretty popular place to party and dance on a Saturday night!|
|Although Abigails introduction and appearance were without much fan fare, nothing can squelch the stage presence this women has. Abigail proves shes still got the moves and the voice on her first venture with her new record label, Interhit. Abigail opened her set with a new single. Its safe to assume that its off her second full-length album due out very soon.|
|Weve since learned that her new single, If It Dont Fit, Dont Force It has been remixed by Thunderpuss 2000 which was expected since the remix duo have been heavily involved with Interhit. This may have been the song, but we cant be sure.|
|Abigail then tore into Constant Craving, the Katie Lang cover hit. Her delivery was silky smooth. Next without much pause in between was Losing My Religion the REM cover hit.|
|She completed her set with smashing rendition of Let the Joy Rise (Interhit) that Abigail co-wrote with Livin Joys Janice Robinson (Warner). The whole floor was moving, waving their arms in the air, screaming Let the Joy Rise. After she completed the set, she came back on stage doing an a cappella version of Let The Joy Rise, which showed her true vocal talents. The song kicked in again and everyone was singing and dancing along. It was quite a memorable evening! We can't wait to see her next move.|
