Mada London x 1883 Magazine collaborated once again for their #CargoMonthly music event however, this time, the event was extra special – because it was the celebration of Vanessa’s White first material as a solo artist.
As we all know, she’s was part of a sassy girl-group The Saturdays, who had a string of number 1 hit singles, as well as a reality show on E! Apart from getting success with the girls, Vanessa White has had a ripple effect of gaining a strong personal fanbase. Therefore, it wasn’t a surprise about the excitement of her EP after releasing her first music video last year. Hence why dedicated fans were first in line and in front of the stage on the night.
But before the star of the night came out to perform, the audience were entertained by supporting acts Corey Fox Cardell and HVMNS.
Take HVMNS for example (pronounced hymns). Their music? – dark, dramatic, eerie, but with strong ballads. The duo (which consists of singer Moa and guitarist/sound engineer Guus Hoevenaars) made it a specialty to perform a new untitled track on the night.
Corey Fox Fardell showed his amazing guitar abilities; both in an acoustic and electrifying way. Performing tracks such as “Don’t Feel Like Loving“, “Can’t Get Enough” and “Animals“.
Once the two acts showcased their new singles, Cargo was fully packed. Few familiar faces such as Vince Kidd and Jermaine Riley were all in the building to support White’s new chapter as a solo artist. Even White’s fellow Saturdays bandmates were there! But the pandemonium made many to loose out on getting a picture with the popstars. The few who did use that quick opportunity however will cherish their few moments with them for the rest of their lives.
Already, the audience were shouting and cheering Vanessa on, as she walks onto the stage in the midst of sudden darkness. Then the music went straight into track one (Relationship Goals), where she showed off her dance moves, her voice and that sultry leather catsuit (well, we don’t know what to call it). After the intro of her first track, she went straight into “Nostalgia”, with many of her fans singing along to the song; indicating that a lot of people have downloaded her “Chapter One EP”.
The night continued on with her performance of her other two tracks “Don’t Wanna Be Your Lover” and “Lipstick Kisses”. It was a fast wind of excitement but in a short space of time (even Ms White didn’t want it to end). With the great turnout of Mada Music x 1883 Magazine’s Cargo Monthly’s and a positive review from her first release, we already know for sure that Vanessa White’s solo career is going to be EPIC.
