I recently interviewed Miss Masquerade, so it was a thrill to meet her in person at Icon. http://djbuddybeaverhausen.blogspot.com/2014/08/the-diva-behind-mask-exclusive-q-with.html This lady is a triple threat of brains, beauty and talent as she later displayed when she performed with her two male dancers.
Masquerade opened her three-song set, after midnight, with her chart-climbing new dance number, "Higher," an energetic, makes-you-want-to-move tune, to an appreciative and very packed house. She followed it up with two splendidly rendered covers: Rihanna's "We Found Love (in a Hopeless Place), that I liked better than the original, in fact, and a sensational interpretation of Robin S's "Show Me Love." Kudos to Barbara Sobel for arranging for Masquerade's appearance last night.
Dj Ian Ford was dj'ing and truly sparked a disco inferno, as the party people packed the floor. And, as usual, Nick Lion was the most gracious host with the most.
Here are some pictures I took of another fabulous, Iconic night:
