The 25 Best Concerts in Houston Before FPSF

Jazmine Sullivan House of Blues, April 2

You know those artists who you search on YouTube late at night to watch video montages of their "Best Vocal Moments"? Jazmine Sullivan is one of those artists. The self-proclaimed "church girl" released her third album, Reality Show, earlier this year after taking a four-year hiatus from the music industry, and judging by the new music's abundance of "hear-to-believe" vocal runs and newfound versatility, it's got Grammy written all over it.

She used to be just another impressive R&B singer, but I'd say Sullivan has moved past the "church girl" label and onto simply being an all-encompassing "vocal powerhouse" whose sheer pipes are impressive enough to bring in a sold-out crowd. IVAN GUZMAN
