GFM had the wonderful opportunity of not just covering Eric Roberson’s “Mister Nice Guy” tour in Atlanta but a bit of the backstage action as well. From the warm up vocals backstage, pairing the perfect suit for sartorial elegance and giving the final note of the night, we were there for it all. The show was full of major highlights like the vocal and physical acrobatic performance of the Atlanta songstress, Algebra Blessett along with special surprise appearances by Anthony David and Rhonda Thomas. Also a big shout out for Ms. Avery Sunshine and V-103 radio personality Terry Bello for being in the house as well. Check out some of our pictorial footage before and during the show.
