The regional and international acts however, were the highlights of Sunday’s event.

Morgan Heritage captivated the audience right from the start with its mega-hits while Luciano left the crowd chanting “we want more” after his final song, ‘We’re All In This Thing Together.”

The performance by the renowned Beres Hammond should’ve been longer some complained as they could never get enough of his songs. International artist; Angie Stone provided a mixture of soul, R&B and rap to the large crowd on hand.

It was the performance by musical genius; Wyclef Jean that left the crowd speechless.

His on stage presentation was mesmerizing.
