Multi platinum recording artist Brandy hit the subway in NYC incognito recently for a short performance which a friend filmed via phone.
It seems as if the world has forgotten about Brandy, or at least New York City commuters have. Many of the subway riders didn’t even respond to the famed singer as she belted out smooth notes.
In her defense, Brandy didn’t sing any of her own classics. If so, I think many of the commuters would’ve easily recognized her voice. The talented songstress opted to bust out a rendition of “Home” from the musical The Wiz.
I wonder why she chose that song? I don’t know too many people who know that song off hand and will hum along. Also, at the wrong time of the day, I could envision this song giving someone a headache.
Brandy shouldn’t think too deep on this one experience in NYC. For starters, most New Yorkers are trained to ignore everything around them once they get on the Subway.
On the bright side, the one fan that noticed Brandy had nothing but nice things to say. "This is an important city ready to embrace you... Don't be scared... go for it!" "We’ve seen this a million times!"
Something tells me Brandy wasn’t going to lose any sleep over this experiment in any outcome.
