Owl was aksed questions from the co-hosts about his career and his getting signed to Koch Records. he basically said that he will get to them (Kock Records) when he get to them cuz he got other things to grind on. the former STL radio perosnlaity also said that he has been a lover of hip -hop since teh early 80s and regardless of your age ou can still pursue your dreams.

Next up was Teresajenee who performed a 30 minute set of Erykah Badu meets Alicia keys kind of show.

She surprised the audience with her new hip-hop teenybopper outift and agile style on stage away from the piano.

During the Teresajenee set OUTTOWN caught Cafe Soul's Angie Brown and Coco Soul in the house.

When she returend to her familiar singer and keys vibe, she performed some crowd faves including "Pushin," and a new song, "Stars in your eyes" from her new CD, "The Eclectric One." They also did a gospel tinged paradoy of gospel with the witty, "I Gonna Get me a Job."

Her background singers were dressed in a "Happy Days" meets "Good Times" falir.

When asked about her new confidence in her career, Teresajenee said that this year was her year to to stop blocking her blessings and to relinquish the pain she has dealt with in the past. She also talked about her Pentacostal ubringing being a challenge for her and how she tries to uses the stage to deal with her strict upringing.

Headliner, Nikko Smith performed mostly cover tunes, but he did perform his orginal song, "Bedroom."

The cover songs he performed were Marvin,'s "Lets Get it on," Stevie's, "All I do" and "Supersition."

Smith also tried his stint at comedy with a joke about a man accidentily using a parrot as toilet paper. Afterwards, he said to the cowd, 'Should I stick to singing?" The crowd then said a resounding YES.

A long shot of Smith on stage.
