My evening with Janelle Monae!

Amazing! So last Thursday I was blessed to be able to attend the APM Music Series concert at The Taste of Chicago. I brought my mom along with me and we had a blast.

The great people of Illinois Lottery sponsored the event and even had a hospitality suite for their VIP guest. It was full of tasty bites and treats. I think I gained 5 pounds that night due to the sugar cookies and red potato salad!

It was great seeing so many of my blogger friends we laughed and talked until the show started. But of course when Miss Janelle Monae hit the stage all talking ceased and all eyes were on HER. Her performance was magical. The stage was set up nicely and her outfits and shoes were on point. The band had the crowd standing the entire show. With her energy, talent, and sincere heart I was completely blown away.

Janelle jumped into the audience held a cute toddler, jokingly jumped on some guys back and encouraged Chicago to stop the violence. She was down to earth and with her song lyrics she seemed transparent. I was a fan before but this event sealed the deal!
