As the fall season of new and returning shows comes upon us, StyleStamped will highlight the best of the season here! First up, Verses and Flow.
What is Versus and Flow? It is a show that airs on TVone, sponsored by the luxury automobile Lexus. The idea of the show was born in 2010 when the “Lexus Listening Lounge” was created to feature and highlight talented, up and coming neo-soul music artist. The events were such a success that in 2011 a National show was born and renamed Versus and Flow, expanding to include neo-soul, R&B, and spoken word. The first two seasons (2011 and 20112) consisted of eight 30-minute shows, and the second season (2012) show was nominated for a NAACP Image Award! Season 3 will expand the concept with 12 shows and the line-up is one that you will not want to miss! The talent that Versus and Flow is bringing to the big screen is definitely StyleStamped approved!
I’m just going to be honest, the music lineup is crazy! There will be music performances by some of my favorite artists including Jill Scott, Anthony Hamilton, Faith Evans, Mary Mary, Kenny Lattimore, Vivian Green, Raheem DeVaughn, Avant, RaVaughn, and Bell Biv DeVoe yes…BBD!! Also featured on the mic will be musical performing artists Andra Day, Q Parker, The Tony Rich Project. Crazy!
The poetry line-up will bring returning spoken-word superstars to include Carvens Lissaint, Miles Hodges, Jon Goode, Prentice Powell, Maestro Gamin and IN-Q. Added to the list of poets for Season 3 is the group Fiveology, Paul Mabon, Ainsley Burrows, Imani Cezzane, Aaron White, Carlos Andrés Goméz, Marshall Davis Jones, Ed Mabrey, Ashley August, Sha’Condria “iCon” Sibley, Beni Villafana and more.
The Season Premier show is set to be on fiyah tonight, featuring Jill Scott, Miles Hodges, and Carvens Lissaint. The show will be hosted this season by the very very handsome (yes, I had to say “very” twice) and talented Omari Hardwick along with musical director extraordinaire Adam Blackstone and the “Versus and Flow” band. Tune in tonight!! Check your local listing and tune in then come back and comment on this post and tell the StyleStamped community what you think!
