Make it your own. Do something unique. Put a fresh twist on it.

Naima Adedapo - Dancing in the Street

She incorporated horns and percussion instruments and broke it down at one point with her own style of moving and shaking. There was a tribal element to the rendition, helping it stand out and leading to the following critique from Randy:

“Finally, tonight, all of Naima showed up – the girl that loves all the African dance… the reggae girl… the singing. Everything was very smart that you did.”

Do you agree?
