American singer and songwriter Avant hit the stage in Pittsburgh at the Greater Pittsburgh Coliseum, on Nov. 12, to a packed house.
“It’s been 16 years in the game, and I’m just happy to be here, ya’ dig. Music is a beautiful thing, and one of those things that is forever changing. I love producing real music and music that’s about people’s lives. Songs like ‘Read Your Mind’ and ‘Separated,’ real life happenings that people been through,” Avant said.
Avant, an R&B musical sensation that has been in the music industry for 16 years and appeared in films, such as “Barbershop” and “Back in Business.” The R&B soulful singer performed many hits during the concert, such as “Separated,” “First Love,” “Read Your Mind” and more.
“I write all my music, and around the time ‘Separated’ came out my heart was broken. And I remember going to my manager asking him if I should do the song, and he told me yeah because people need to hear that. So I went through with it, laid my heart on the track and the record did pretty good,” Avant said.
“I love kicking at the Homewood Coliseum, cabaret style. It is so much fun. Me and my family had a ball. I was up on my feet all night,” said attendee Nettie Johnson.
