Vital - The Clean Hearts Only Show - 10.06.18

It's been a year since Vital shut down his city with the POWERS Headline Show, a night which didn't only see the WV figurehead showcase his talents, but the whole of his city as well. With special guests performing throughout the night, followed by an extended set from Vital, it was safe to say that the power was with the Wolves that night. 12 months down the line, and we have been blessed with the 'Clean Hearts Only' projects it was only right that the energies reformed and another historic event was put on for the city.

Throughout the night we saw a range of special guests, from undiscovered, young talents, through to fully established artists who hold strong reputations within the game. Artists from Wolverhampton, and Birmingham came out to contribute to the unforgettable show, while the crowd was made up of people from all over the world, whether it was those from Canada, Rotterdam or Manchester. The people came out for Vital, and from there you knew it was going to be a night to remember.

 

The night kicked off with a number of support acts, but the three artists that stood out for me were the young, upcoming talents that are T.Ace, Y.T and JD Squada. Three individuals that Vital himself has been mentoring and guiding with their music. Each and everyone came out and let everybody know that they are the future and the ones to watch, whilst getting the stage ready for the likes of Cicero, Tynee, and Jinx TouchWood who were also warming the crowd up for the headline act.

Once again it was Andre Soul on hosting duties, and the Birmingham based influencer ensured that the vibe was correct, and ready for Vital to take to the stage following the support acts and warm up sets from DJ Kingpin and Simmz.

 

The main act's set kicked off with his very own rendition of Oasis' Wonderwall where he payed tribute to his city before making himself visible and taking to the stage to perform 'Release', the opening track on 'Clean Hearts Only'. 

 

Over the course of the night we were blessed with even more special guests from across the Midlands. The likes of Movez, K2, DJ Day Day and many more all joined Vital on stage to perform both collaborative tracks and their own individual music.

As many of you are aware, Vital has a huge catalogue of music, which takes you on a journey from a young boy chasing his dreams, to a grown man that is living them in real life. So, when he takes to the stage and shares this journey with us, the people feel connected, and that is the exact vibe you got from those in attendance. People from all ways of life, in one room, and each and every one of them felt connected through the music. From 'Love For Grime', all the way through to tracks such as 'Wake Up', Vital constructed this show to perfection.

 

 

It was only right that he also gave the opportunity to his close friends and family to share the stage with him and perform their works. We already saw the OhMyGoooush creators close affiliate, Jinx TouchWood shut down, but the circle is much wider, hence why Heckz, Phundo Art, BeeNice, Elektric, Dimez, and WestLee all contributed to the memorable event.

But, the stand out moment of the night has to be when Vital brought out his two brothers to perform a track which features on his 'Chromosone Y' project. Multi-talented creative, ReadTheTitle, and future star, ManLykJev, came out to perform 'Enemies' with their big brother, and let the crowd know the power that their family holds.

As the show came to a close, Vital let his fans know that this would more than likely be the last showcase from him, and that it was time to travel with him to his shows, but more importantly it was time to continue the trend and continue to put Headline Shows on for the talent within the city. So, who do you want to see next?
