Luam teamed up with Danity Kane to create their first show in six years since the group announced they were reuniting several months ago. A packed house at House of Blues in LA, tickets sold out in 24hours, the fans were in rare form and screamed the girls on throughout the performance. They also debuted their new song, ‘All In A Day’s Work’. Check it out!
“It was all about establishing a new performance style that worked for them as women but still showcased their full talents,” Luam says, “They’re still the DK their fans remember, but 6 years later, they’re so much more too… It was about showing off that evolution.”
Everyone knew Kelly Rowland was set to perform at BET Black Girls Rock. But no one expected what came next…
Luam and Kelly teamed up to create a performance that started with her girls in the theatre lobby, danced through the audience picking up more dancers along the way, and stopped in the seats to rock with hosts Regina Bell and Traci Ellis Ross. Kelly then introduced her first surprise guest Sevyn Streeter on the stage and then joined her and the ten dancers. Then in another surprise moment, she gestures to the balcony and Eve kills with a verse as they perform back and forth to each other. Afterward she tops it off with a dance break, a la Michael Jackson ‘Rock My World’ and finishes with Sevyn in a girl power moment.
When asked about the tone of the performance, Luam said, “Kelly really wanted to hallmark the sisterhood of the night by celebrating the talent of fellow beautiful brown skinned women. It takes a special kind of woman and artist to share the spotlight so selflessly and with such grace and power on the stage.”

Big ups to all the HBCUs! This performance was an ode to Black Fraternities and Sororities everywhere. When Janelle said she wanted to make the whole Electro Phi Beta concept come alive, it was a no brainer that a step show was in order!
