Old School Jam!
As part of tournament week, Justin Timberlake hosts an annual concert benefiting Shriners Hospitals for Children.
This year's concert theme was "Old School Jam," with artists who have influenced Timberlake.
The concert line-up featured Earth, Wind & Fire, Charlie Wilson (Gap Band), Vanilla Ice, The Commodores, the Sugar Hill Gang, Sister Sledge, Turbo B and Color Me Badd.
It was a real treat to see Earth wind and Fire perform, and Vanilla Ice, and Charlie Wilson was tearing up the stage! Yeah, you Dropped a Bomb on me! That was so much fun! Oh and to hear Sugar Hill Gang sing Rapper's Delight...Oh my gosh that was great, the very first hip-hop, rap song ever and I was there when it first came out!
It was intersting to see that these bands really did influence Justin, you could see his moves and style just from watching the older bands entertain!
We stayed for all the songs hoping Justin would sing us one..but he was having fun hosting and telling jokes with Wayne Brady, they were having a blast up on stage. That was a real treat, JT is a funny guy all the time anyway. So just seeing him on stage was great!
The concert finally ended at 1 AM !! What a fun night out! Thanks Tanya and Erin for "Jumping on the Party Train" with me and "Boogie-ing on Down with me!
