The First Lady of Crunk & B (a genre that mixes crunk music and R&B) aka Ciara proved to be more than just an opening act when she performed before Jay-Z hit the stage. The concert, held on July 7 at the Charter One Pavilion at Northerly Island, also included rapper Fabolous, who performed his new single "Throw It in the Bag."
Ciara was most recently seen paying tribute to the late Michael Jackson at the BET Awards show as she sang his song "Heal the World." Known for her flexible dance moves, she did not let the audience down as she performed mind-boggling moves on the Charter One Pavilion stage.
The Grammy-nominated singer first became popular with her song "Goodies," which made her one of the first artists to use the Crunk & B style of music and helped her earn her title as the first lady of the genre by producer Jazze Pha.
Her dance moves in the video for "Goodies" drew attention to her as more than just another female singer, and even began a comparison of her to Janet Jackson, also known for her innovative dancing.
