Lyfe Jennings invites a fan onstage for the song "Appreciated" and hugs her as she gets ready to exit off.

On the rainy night of Feb. 12, the Temple Theatre was filled with hundreds of eager individuals ready to see the artist of the night: Lyfe Jennings. When my family and I entered the scene, one of the employees took us to the VIP section located right in-front of the stage. I realized I was the youngest person there as I glanced around at everyone in the theatre, but I predicted that would happen. I’ve always been a fan of older music rather than my own generation’s.

Prior to the artist’s performance, three hilarious comedians came on stage and performed. To my surprise, one of the comedians was from my hometown of Cleveland. Each comedian did a great job making sure that the audience was included in their performance. One comedian picked with a guy the entire show and even gave him a nickname before it was over. Though the headline comedian was nowhere as good as the other two, they all did wonderful and had everyone very tickled.

Monshale Harris, my sister and concert attendee, commented, “The comedians were very entertaining. So much joy was delivered through sense of humor.”

When Lyfe Jennings entered the stage, the whole atmosphere changed in the theatre. Everyone stood up on their feet and yelled to present their level of excitement. Jennings made the show flow very well by switching the music from fast pace to slow and back again. He also gave great wisdom to the audience throughout the entire show, most of it being relative to relationships.

If you don’t want to be monogamous, find somebody that has no intentions of being monogamous with you. Don’t just waste anyone’s time.”

— Lyfe Jennings

Jennings mentioned, “If you don’t want to be monogamous, find somebody that has no intentions of being monogamous with you. Don’t just waste anyone’s time.”

When I looked around and observed the crowd, it appeared that everyone was having the night of their lives. He performed his most famous songs: “Let’s Stay Together,” “Stick Up Kid,” and “Statistics.” Everyone was singing along with the artist and waving their arms in the air in correspondence with the music.

My father, Evan Caine, said, “To sit back and see the happiness and excitement in my daughter’s face really gave me unspeakable joy. I’m always trying to be the best dad that I can be.  As we all know, laughter is good for the soul.”

The energy from Jennings was great from the beginning to end. There wasn’t a moment where everyone wasn’t on their feet singing along, especially when he sang “Must Be Nice.”

Beverly Adams, also a fellow concert attendee, stated, “The performance was entertaining by the way the singer engaged the crowd by performing familiar songs with memorable lyrics.”

After the show was over, my family and I left the VIP section and proceeded to the private meet and greet. Jennings greeted us with excitement and thanked us for coming out and supporting him. He offered to take pictures with us on stage, so we all took turns posing with him. When my turn came, I was quite nervous as I slowly walked up to the couch where he was sitting. He put his arm around me, then we both smiled as the photographer snapped the picture. I knew from that moment that it was most definitely a night that I would never forget.

Lyfe Jennings left me pondering after he gave the audience a few words referring to karma, and now it’s my turn to give it to you: “You are a creator. Every word out your mouth is a creation. Every thought that you have in your mind is a creation. So, karma is just you living out your creation. If you wonder why you’re at any point in your life, all you have to do is go back to what have you been speaking the most and what have you been thinking about the most. Most likely, you are living your karma.”
