I made it my business to take time Sunday to stop through Harris-Stowe to see my girl Rhoda G. serve up a sneak preview of what she’s going to do when she takes her saxophone to Apollo Stage for its world-famous Amateur Night. If it goes anything like it did Sunday for her “Take Off” benefit concert, she’s going to literally blow everyone away. She did everything from gospel, to old school R&B and everything in between. Never in my life did I expect to hear Ed Sheeran and Anita Baker at the same show – especially when I stepped into Harris-Stowe’s Main Auditorium. Rhoda did her thing, and she is still taking donations as she prepares to make the trip to NYC. Be sure to hit her up on www.rhodag.com and drop a few coins so she can represent STL in style when she goes on the world’s most famous stage.
