For those who love hip-hop or music as a whole, Denver is just the city where music is made and performed with passion and pride. When Brother Alirecently played at the Blue Bird Theater on 10/12/12, I was blown away at how different this show had been compared to the previous times I have seen him perform. His energy and lyricism are inspirational. The entire crowd was sweaty with love for him and his music.
For those who are from CO as well as avid hip-hop fans, The Reminders, who opened up for the albino legend from Minnesota, are an amazing hip-hop group that are inspiring and soulful much like Brother Ali. The husband and wife duo unwrapped their hearts to the audience, while being able to put a smile on the crowds’ faces by being themselves and doing with they love with conviction. It was as if Brother Ali and The Reminders fed off each other in order to create an unbelievable show filled with emotion, passion, beauty, and conviction.
"We were lucky to have the opportunity to tour with him [Brother Ali]." said MC and singer Aja Black. Both groups put their souls and experiences all out on the line and on stage as if it was their only confortable medium for true expression.
