Keya Wilson didn’t open with an R&B song. Instead, she showed the soulful connection between R&B and gospel genres with “Blessings,” a gospel-flavored song she wrote. “It was a thank you to all my supporters,” Wilson said about “Blessings.”

Local promoter Denm Inc. held R&B Divas Unplugged on June 29. The local artist showcase took place at Gullifty’s in Camp Hill.

With good song choices and impressive vocals, Wilson gave a successful set. Some of the highlights of her set included a performance of Elle Varner’s hit single “Refill.” Hitting notes from the song’s chorus can be daunting, but Wilson nailed it. And when she sang Beyonce’s “Party,” she was able to convey positive vibes like B. did.

Wilson paid homage to Lauryn Hill, singing “Killing Me Softly,” “Ready or Not” and “The Sweetest Thing.” She performed other 90’s gems, such as SWV’s “Weak” and  Mary J. Blige’s “Be Happy.”

This is the first story of a three-part series.
