The Midsouth Best $1000 showcase went down & history in Memphis Nov. 5th & the winners were Stringz of St.Louis who actually went to college in Memphis, & Bravee Musiq of Jackson, Tenn.
The most thought out performance of the night, came from a performer who spent his entire 1st track in a straight jacket surrounded by doctors & nurses that turned into background dancers . The vibe of his performance along was like watching a production from an award show, and had everybody glued to his performance to see what other surprises were in store.
Stringz had the most confidence out of all of the performers of the night commanding the crowd with one of the most original sounds, & songs of the evening , that drew everyone closer to the stage, even the competition, with everybody swaying their arms in unison. The energy of his performance changed the feel of the whole showcase. He stood out, & sounded like no one else.
Both artist put on explosive, entertaining shows, but most artist that competed that night did a great job as well, Memphis showed love, and most people respected the decision of the judges overwhelmingly.
