Harrisburg Juneteenth Concert Draws Many

Harrisburg, Pa

The Juneteenth concert, held at XL Live in Harrisburg on June 18, transported the audience to the 2000s and 2010s. The Keri Hilson and Shad “Bow Wow” Moss show reminded concertgoers of the 106 & Park TV show era.

The sold-out concert was free of charge, but attendants had to request a ticket.

Keri Hilson wore a black shirt, hat, and boots with a teal and black trench jacket. Her cool dance moves and hit songs captivated the crowd. “Knock You Down,” “Slow Dance” and “Pretty Girl Rock” were some songs from her set.

Shad Moss, aka Bow Wow and “Mr. 106 & Park,” performed after Hilson. He was clad in a white, long-sleeved T-shirt

and shorts from his BWApparel clothing line.

He performed singles including “Like You.” While the song “I Think They Like Me” blasted from the speakers, Bow Wow did the “Lean Wit It, Rock Wit It” dance.

Amber “Amberella” Luster hosted the concert. At one point in the show, the Harrisburg resident did an outfit change, wearing black BWApparel shorts and a white top onstage.

“It felt amazing to host,” Luster exclaimed. “I live for entertaining the crowd … I was definitely in my element, and I enjoyed every second of it.”
