Mai Lee Takes The Spotlight With “Von” Live Performance

Published

on

Vietnamese R&B/Pop vocalist Mai Lee enlists guitarist Connor Low as well as background singers Shanelle Scott, Dabriel Moore, and Brittny Holloway for a live performance of “Von (Love Me Like The First Time)” taken off her ‘FRIENDZ’ LP. Filmed at STL’s iconic Mai Lee Restaurant in Brentwood, during her Lunar New Year (Unplugged) concert, the intimate in-person experience compliments the Bradd Young & Vega Heartbreak produced track perfectly.

A medley of the people and places she represents, Mai Lee transcends the boundaries of music and fashion. Growing up in Missouri, the seasoned singer has always had music on her mind and in her heart. Attending performing arts schools during her youth, she uses those experiences to create a unique genre blending sound. Known for her intoxicating and soulful vocals, Mai Lee has shared the stage with artists such as Megan Thee Stallion, 2 Chainz, Fetty Wap, Estelle, and Busta Rhymes, performing in front of an audience of 20K+ people.

While you may hear some familiar influences in her sound, Mai Lee notes her parents as her biggest inspirations for her music career. Fleeing from Vietnam in 1978 during the Vietnam War, Lee’s parents migrated through multiple refugee camps over the years before calling St. Louis their home. They opened up the first Vietnamese and Chinese Restaurant, Mai Lee Restaurant, a local staple in the city. The restaurant was built from absolutely nothing and ended up becoming the blueprint. Watching them work hard towards their dreams gave her the hustle and grit to pursue her dreams.

Press play on the live performance visual for “Von,” stream the official audio on your DSP of choice, and expect the re-release of Mai’s ‘FRIENDZ‘ to arrive later this year via Venice Music!

Grammy-nominated Christian music staple Deitrick Haddon releases his latest studio album ‘One Night In California.’ Featuring a 17-track personal worship session, including standout records “Without You,” “Covered (Under D Blood),” “Never Be The Same,” “Momma We Made It,” “The Lord Will Make A Way,” and “One Day,” the new LP is the Detroit native’s first solo body of work since 2022’s ‘A Deitrick Haddon Christmas.’ Addressing criticism received about his methods, catalogue, and marriage head on but, more than that, the project finds him thanking God for bringing him through it all. Whether he’s penning timeless choir classics or performing the contemporary gems that have made him the ever popular firebrand, the cohesive collection of songs capture Haddon showcasing his full range of talent.

The title track single, which takes the same approach Usher did for his groundbreaking hit “Confessions,” reveals the seedy circumstances surrounding the events that forced him to turn to Christ. As a pastor, his past has always been the subject of speculation and rumor but, on this song, he clears the air. Divulging these details would be risque for any mainstream artist, but it’s especially taboo in religious spaces. Nevertheless, Haddon pushes the envelope while still managing to make a smash that will be talked about and enjoyed for years.

One of the biggest names in the Gospel genre, Deitrick Haddon is a Billboard chart topping singer, songwriter, producer, and pastor who’s been a lightning rod for Christ for years. His amazing music along with his featured role on Oxygen’s Preachers of LA television show has allowed him to amass loyal fans and followers the world over. Some of his most prestigious accolades include being a 2x Stellar Award winner, 2x NAACP Image Award winner, a Dove Award winner, a Soul Train Award Winner, and a 3x Grammy nominated artist. Haddon is constantly operating outside of the box and he has a knack for garnering attention on social media.
