Sunday (11/9/18), the “New Jack Swing Day” in Harlem began with a presentation from NYS Assemblywoman Inez Dickens and NYS Senator Brian Benjamin who gave Teddy Riley, Keith Sweat, Damien Hall and Kool Moe Dee keys to Harlem. The presentation was held at the Apollo Theater in Harlem. It was definitely time to shine the music spotlight on the enormous 30 year impact the “New Jack Swing” sound and the architect behind the sound “Teddy Riley” has made in the music industry.
After the presentation, the City of Harlem gathered for LIVE performances by Keith Sweat, Doug E Fresh, Guy, Blackstreet, Al B Sure and MC Lyte. The whole show was streaming LIVE on Tidal from the Apollo Theater.
