Sydfest Summer Sounds at the Domain

AWESOME! what a gorgeous evening it was for a outdoor concert too. The weatherman had us bracing for a repeat of Jan 8 heatwave, but it managed to stay mild all day thank goody!

So we packed a blanket and headed to the Domain for the Sydney Festival Summer Sounds, which was hosting a brilliant evening of funk, soul, gospel and jazz with the superb 'Sing the Truth' trio of Angelique Kidjo, Dianne Reeves and Lizzie Wright.

A memerizing experience for music lovers, the trio immersed the crowd in deep soul and sang a range of covers that utterly captivated. We ended up catching the last hour amongst what looked to be thousands, pausing on the walkway for a video and a few pictures, enthralled by their powerful magnetic singing.

The strawberry stand was just delicious! This stand was made out of strawberries haha.. Jeans and I just had to indulge in strawberries and ice cream, we couldnt resist.

When the show was over, this hillarious drunk guy randomly came over and serenaded us with a made-up-on-the-spot rap lol! [see video below] That topped off a really great evening.
