I can’t WAIT for Valentine’s Day this year. I’m not usually a fan of the day because, to be quite honest, I give and get love everyday. I love love, and I love being in love. So the notion of having an extra special day for love is just silly to me. If you want love in your life, just surround yourself with it, give it, receive it, be thankful for it, and it will come in abundance!

So back to my excitement. This year’s Love Day has two bomb performances that I will be checking out, with a few of my all time favorite performers hitting the stage.

Number One: Valentine’s Day with Amel Larrieux

This sweet, breathy songbird is on constant rotation. Amel Larrieux always makes me smile and lights the fire of my femininity. I feel like flying when I hear her sing. And that is an understatement!

Now who better to put you in the mood than Maxwell. You hear one note of one of his songs, and you know its on. He is a classic, and he doesn’t even need to try. And then to be combined with one of my all time favorite rappers, Nas. Really good hip hop merged with soulful R&B? I’m there.
