Ne-Yo to perform at SummerFest 2006

Friday June 23, 2006

Simpson Bay, St. Maarten - At just the tender age of 22, Ne-Yo is already taking the music industry by storm. Always the artist, Ne-Yo is exceptionally talented at expressing himself through various art forms including martial arts, paintings, drawings and is better known through song.
This songwriter turned singer found his passion for music growing up in his single parent home in Las Vegas Nevada. Born Shaffer C. Smith, Ne-Yo has penned some of the biggest radio records in history, writing for the likes of multi-platinum and Grammy award winning artists such as Mary J. Blige, B2K, Faith Evans, Mario and Musiq. His lyrical talent has produced some of the most heartfelt, and passionate songs that touch the soul.
His first single “Stay with Me” exemplifies his talent to produce multifaceted songs that are fit for the dance floor while featuring his smooth layered vocals. His big hit “So Sick” in which he laments hearing love songs on the radio after a love gone wrong, has also taken the airwaves by storm and is a huge hit here on the island as well. His debut album on Def Jam Records “In my Own Words” captures his charismatic character in all of his songs, with some suited for the bedroom, some for the dance floor while others capture his more playful side such as in “When You’re Mad” in which he tells his lover she is even more beautiful when she “makes her angry face.”

Ne-Yo will be in St. Maarten on July 29th, 2006 to perform on the RnB Night at the 3rd Annual St. Maarten/St. Martin SummerFest. Be sure not to miss this great performance.
