When DaBaby says he's going to play a show, he will - no matter what happens.
The rapper was recently unable to make a show in his hometown, Charlotte, due to problems with his jet. He posted on his Instagram that he was extremely upset about the situation - but he wasn't going to let that stop him from playing Power 98 FM's Winter Block Party at the Bojangles' Coliseum.
Due to circumstances beyond my control I was unable to make it my show in my OWN. city last night Paid extra for a jet just to make sure this type of shit wouldn’t happen. Although Baby a firm believer in everything happening for a reason I can’t get over the fact that I let my fans(FAMILY) down by not being able to make it. Thanks to my fast moving team and a few solid supporters at @power98fm we figured out a way to broadcast me live on the jumbo screen at the concert on a FaceTime call. #BDBENT Super Star @stunna4vegas held it down and explained to the audience what was goin on. Soon as they heard my voice and saw my face on the screen over a FaceTime call the whole arena turnt up! I just witnessed myself rock a coliseum through a FaceTime call No matter how it come off anybody that know me personally can tell you I’m one of the most humble people you could meet, especially being in the position I’m in and why I went through to get here. But last night I was humbled even more. God gave me the opportunity to show my city I’m NOT perfect. While at the same time showing me that I don’t gotta be perfect at all for my city to love and support me For the lessons taught through these unfortunate circumstances I’m forever grateful This type of shit don’t happen where we from, they usually would’ve tore that bitch down. But instead y’all helped me write another page in the history book last night. Preciate y’all for understanding From, Baby. #KeepYaTickets #FREEconcertOTW #CHARLOTTE Moments captured by: @ricodidit & @igot20onmybeat .
DaBaby reached out to the concert organisers and set up a way of performing, without actually being there - FaceTime.
DaBaby's collaborator Stunna 4 Vegas explained it to the fans who were there, and from all reports, it was an absolute success. The FaceTime call was broadcast live on the jumbo screen at the venue, and really, we can't knock DaBaby's creativity or committment to performing.
Check out the footage from the show below - maybe this is a new way of performing that artists will embrace in the future?
#PressPlay: #DaBaby was on his way from New York City to Charlotte to perform at Power 98 FM's Winter Block Party, but unfortunately his jet experienced some technical difficulties on the way to the show. He expressed his disappointment on Instagram. Nonetheless, he performed for the crowd through FaceTime, keeping his promise to keep everyone turned up. (: @quitesimplyellen)
