Marsha Ambrosius gives you goose bumps  Two time 2012 Grammy nominee, songwriter and singer Marsha Ambrosius was live in concert in early December at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Doors opened at 8:30 p.m. Although the venue was not a packed house, but there was still a good portion of loyal fans in the attendance of the concert.

The R&B vocalist performed songs from her debut album, “Late Nights and Early Mornings,” songs like, “Your Hands,” “Far Away,” and “With You.” The artist interacted with the crowd by speaking to her fans about her nominations from the Grammy awards.

Ambrosius became personal with her fans as she spoke about her relationship with men. Ultimately leading her to sing one of her singles off her album, “I Hope She Cheats on You.” This is a bitter song towards a man that left her for another woman.  Also having high hopes that he runs into karma in his next relationship.

Ambrosius, a former member of the duo group “Floetry” didn’t only perform slow and sad songs from her album, but performed other upbeat dance songs to excite the crowd.

Ambrosius’ deejay played old school songs from the 80’s and 90’s. Songs like “Pony” from R&B artist Genuine and “Poison” from R&B boy group Bell Biv Devoe.  Complementing the old school scene, the English songwriter was on stage showing her old school dance moves. Dance moves resembling the Running Man. An intense footwork that requires running in place with rhythm. Soon after, the crowd danced to their own old school dances moves.

Later, the solo artist slows it down once again by performing the song “Butterflies.”  “Butterflies” is a Michael Jackson’s hit record that Ambrosius wrote.  As she performed, the talented artist also played the piano showcasing her vocal and artistic abilities. Audience members could easily feel the magnitude of the music as she closed her eyes feeling the music’s sensation.

Towards the end of the show, the artist sang her number one single, “Far Away.” As she’s singing the song, she points the microphone to the crowd allowing her fans to sing along with her. And they concurred, singing in harmony together.  As the songwriter closes the song, the instrumental fades away allowing her to sing a cappella.

While performing a cappella you’re able to feel the vibration of her strong vocals that leaves you with goose bumps. As she exited the stage, her last words were to announce that she is currently working on her sophomore album.

The J Record, recording artist said, “I just performed at Revolution and I had an amazing time the crowd [was] very much into it.”
The ecstatic artist was mostly happy about her accomplishment as being a solo artist.

“I’m celebrating two Grammy nominations and I was with the president yesterday, I’m on a natural high,” she said.

The solo artist continues to receive awards. According to she has won the 2011 Soul Train award Record of the year for “Far Away.” Ambrosuis is the new mainstream R&B and soul artist.

As of now, the artist is in between cities attending award shows and generating new music.
