Fans who attended Muni Long’s second annual Valentine’s Day concert got a real treat. The Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter was joined on stage by Amber Riley and JoJo. The three performed a rendition of “Heartbreak Hotel” that has everyone asking for a full album.
The concert was at the Echoplex in Los Angeles and celebrated love through music. For most of the night, Long celebrated her Grammy win by performing hits from her most recent album, Public Displays Of Affection: The Album.
As Vibe reports, Long slid in several cover songs, including Usher’s “U Got It Bad” and “Pony” by Ginuwine. However, the highlight of the remix segment was when JoJo and Amber Riley joined Long on stage to sing the Whitney Houston hit.
Long starts with Houston’s first verse while standing solo on stage. The pre-chorus that belonged to Faith Evans begins, and JoJo appears from behind the side curtains. Unfortunately, the singer’s mic was off during the first moments of her performance. After addressing technical difficulties, her voice filled the room.
As if it could get any better, Riley walks on stage, belting out the second verse.
The ladies breeze through the song with harmonies and vocal runs that would make the three original divas very proud.
