Fifth Harmony feat. Bea Miller, Debby Ryan & The Never Ending, and Natalie La Rose Nashville 2015 Recap
Fifth Harmony brought their star studded Summer Reflection Tour to Nashville last night in style. The girls chose the iconic Ryman Auditorium to hold their Nashville stop and they did the historic venue justice.
Natalie La Rose
Following on the trails of her #2 chart-topping single, Somebody feat. Jeremiah, Natalie La Rose jumped on the Fifth Harmony Summer Reflection Tour joining Debby Ryan & The Never Ending and Bea Miller as opening acts. Natalie sites Beyoncé, Janet Jackson, and Stevie Wonder as a few of her musical influences and the audience could definitely see glimpses of those stars come out in her performance. Natalie opened her set with a song she was featured on, Gypsy Women by Caroline D'Amore. She then transitioned into a cover of Jealous by Nick Jonas. Natalie closed her set with her smash hit, Somebody.
Debby Ryan & The Never Ending
Debby Ryan has always been one of the 90s generation's favorite stars. Like friends Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato, she started her entertainment career starring on Disney Channel shows and films. In 2012 Debby formed The Never Ending band, but they did not make a public announcement for their first single until April of 2014. The band is formed of Debby Ryan, guitarist Kyle Moore, and drummer Johnny Franco. They are categorized under indie rock and folk genres. The band killed their set in Nashville and the crowd went nuts. Due to the fact that their music is brand new, the crowd didn't know many of the lyrics to sing along with, but it was evident the crowd enjoyed it.
I was excited to see Bea Miller's set. Bea's current boyfriend, Jacob Whitesides, records his music with producer James Joseph, who lives in Memphis. We are big fans of Jacob and James due to the Memphis connection. The crowd welcomed Miller to the stage with chants of "Bea, Bea, Bea". She kicked off with her original song, Dracula from her debut EP, Young Blood. She then went into a crowd favorite, a cover of Nick Jonas' Chains. Bea released her debut EP in April of last year, but the her new single Fire n Gold has started gaining attention as it was recently released to radio in February. She closed her set with the Fire n Gold.
The moment the 5 girls took the stage, the vibe in the room changed. Everyone jumped to their feet and screamed as Fifth Harmony performed their track, Reflection. After 7 high-energy tracks, the group took it down a notch, sat on chairs and did a 5 song acoustic set. They showcased their harmonious vocals as they navigated songs such as Hozier's Take Me to Church, Taylor Swift's Shake It Off, and Mariah Carey's Always Be My Baby. It's always fun to see a group with such tight vocals do an acoustic set to show off their musical abilities and slow things down a bit. The girls then went into the home stretch of their set bringing the energy back up with Everlasting Love. They finished the night with their two smash hits Worth It and BO$$. Worth It and BO$$ have both been certified platinum and Worth It is Fifth Harmony's first top 15 with a peak of number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100. The girls put on a stellar show and 901 Music would recommend seeing the group live to experience the incredible vocals, dancing and overall energy that Fifth Harmony is able to produce.
