He’s helped Rihanna, Beyonce, Jennifer Hudson and Justin Bieber with their chart-topping hits, which means everything that this singer, songwriter, producer and actor touches turns to gold. He’s had five top ten songs on the Billboard Hot 100 and two number-one albums on the Billboard 200. As if that wasn’t enough to keep him busy, he was recently named senior vice president of A&R for Motown Records at the same time he joined the legendary label. But before Compound Entertainment and Motown Recording Artist Ne-Yo continues his takeover of the music world, he’s taking over the mic at Ginny’s on June 11th for a very special Motown Monday. Ginny’s Supper Club is a place to celebrate music masters like Ne-Yo, Roberta Flack and Jimmy Scott, as well as a venue to showcase the artists who have the potential to become legends in their own right. With his second album, “Because of You” going platinum, it’s a safe bet that Ne-Yo has the eyes and ears for new talent at Motown. Lucky for you, you don’t have to wait to hear these future chart-toppers on the radio—on June 11th Ne-Yo will introduce Elijah Kelley, a talented performer who starred with Ne-Yo in the George Lucas hit film Red Tails and performed the title track. Name still sound familiar? Kelley also co-starred and sang in the film adaptation of Hairspray alongside John Travolta, Zac Efron and Michelle Pfeiffer.
Doors to Ginny’s Supper Club open at 7pm with DJ Mos at the turntables, giving you plenty of time to drink a Diablo, Harlem Mule or Smokey Apple cocktail (or all three!) and nibble on Artichoke Croquettes and Mushroom Dumplings and share the Lamb Shank or Brandt Ribeye. Kevin Ross (already a Ginny’s favorite) will open the show singing Motown classics and original songs followed by Ne-Yo’s introduction of Elijah Kelley. And to get you excited and in the mood, click here to listen to Ne-Yo’s latest single “Lazy Love” from his upcoming album, R.E.D., which hits stores September 18th.
