Last night I attended SunFest, a music, art and waterfront festival in West Palm Beach, Fla. produced by SunFest of Palm Beach County, Inc. It’s a five day festival (April 27-May 1), but I chose Thursday night to see Cee Lo Green perform.

A singer-songwriter, rapper and record producer, Green is a versatile artist. He started his career with the Southern hip-hop group, Goodie Mob, who were at the concert and performed some of their classics with Green. He then branched out in his career to form Gnarls Barkley, with DJ/producer Danger Mouse, creating the global hit “Crazy.” Now, he’s gone solo, and won a 2011 Grammy Award for Best Urban/Alternative Performance for his song, “Forget You.” Green’s also a musician coach on NBC's new musical competition series "The Voice."
Dude’s got talent. His performance with his all-female band was energetic and fun. Green performed new tracks, even ballads, good singer. And, he also performed his hits. Though I must admit, while we were waiting for him to come on stage, I wondered if we’d see another feathered outfit and a Muppet or two. But my friend Lady was right when she mentioned that we are in South Florida, it’s hot and humid, and he’d be in a T-shirt.Click here to view more photos
