Following her debut EP Every Girl, released last summer featuring the Frank Ocean-penned “Thinking About Forever,” New York native Bridget Kelly is currently working on her debut album – and on Sunday July 8, the final date of the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, the Roc Nation signed songstress took to the stage to premiere not one but two new songs.
Taking to the Ford Superlounge stage at the Mercedes Benz Superdome, she dug deep and delivered a heartfelt and touching performance of a new track titled “Special Delivery” – detailing a break-up via a letter (which ended with Ms Kelly shedding a few tears onstage due to the personal nature of the song) – followed by her forthcoming album’s lead single “This Love,” which is the flipside of the previous tale of heartbreak and sees Bridget fully embracing Love.
SoulCulture TV were in the building and captured both performances for your viewing pleasure… Press play below.
