hard to believe that R&B artist Lemar has only been in the spotlight for a
couple of years.
The Fame Academy star looked like he'd been around for a
decade with his more than comfortable performance before a sell-out crowd at
Southampton Guildhall on Saturday night.
Greeted on stage by endless high pitched screaming from
his fans he belted out hit after hit from his two albums during a fantastic show
that lasted more than 90 minutes.
Temperatures soared when after asking the audience
"are you feeling hot?" he proceeded to strip to his chest - much to
the delight of his female fans - then leave the stage for one of many outfit
changes of the evening.
The encore went down a treat for the hundreds of people,
young and old, who had turned out to see the 27-year-old.
It kicked off with his own more mellow version of The
Darkness's I Believe In A Thing Called Love and included his recent hit If
There's Any Justice.
Lemar's popularity in the city was more than obvious -
which will leave him with no qualms when he steps out on stage at Power in the
Park in June.
