The crowd screams as the lights go dim. A short message appears on the screens: "The show will begin shortly." Music begins to blast through the speakers, and dancers begin to fill the stage. The crowd roars. A single spotlight shines on the stage. Finally, the show has begun.
Known for her powerful vocals and stage presence, it's no surprise Ailee was performing to a sold out venue at Pechanga Resort & Casino for her concert on November 19th. As the second and final day she would be performing here, the energy was through the roof from beginning to end.
With concert goers being of all ages and races, Ailee spoke in both English and Korean throughout the whole night, and even gave fans a short greeting in Chinese. The show featured several of Ailee's top hits, starting off with U & I, and including songs Mind Your Own Business, Home, Don't Touch Me, and I'll Show You. The soloist also didn't forget to show off her skills with slower songs such as Heaven and I Will Go To You Like The First Snow. Ailee, known also for her covers from shows such as Immortal Songs, gave the audience a special treat with several covers as well. These songs ranged from slower Korean songs such as Everyone by Yoon Bokhee, to English songs such as Versace On The Floor by Bruno Mars, Worth It by Fifth Harmony, and I Will Always Love You by Whitney Houston.
Running in to the crowd two times, taking a sip of alcohol from a fan, and performing with a bright smile on her face, Ailee did a great job keeping the crowd up on their feet throughout the night. Aside from all the jumping around and cheerful moments, though, the vocalist also shared an emotional moment with fans, reminding us all that she, too, is only human. "I know there will come a day where I will no longer be performing on stage, but I will always cherish these moments, and I will always find a way to meet you all."
Ending the show with a bang, Ailee wrapped up the concert with her latest song, Atmosphere. Fans in attendance ranged from kids, to adults, to seniors, and the soloist performed different songs for all to enjoy. Seeing Ailee is always a new experience, as she's an artist that never stops growing, and never disappoints.
