Leah LaBelle performs in NYC while LA Reid, Pharrell, and Jermaine DuPri support
R&B singer and former American Idol contestant Leah LaBelle, 26, recently performed in NYC during a showcase hosted by Epic Records.
"She has soul," exclaimed LA Reid excitedly to a room full of industry insiders, press, and blogger-razzi (blogger/papparazzi). Pharrell Williams and Jermaine Dupri nodded in agreement, smiling like proud parents as Reid went on to introduce the starlette.
During her high energy performance, Leah belted crowd favorites including Box Chevy and Nasty Girl. "She is the truth," Pharrell later commented. Urging the crowd to sing along, Leah closed the show with fanfare - as she performed her new single, "Sexify."
