The monthly sell-out concert series, ATL Live on the Park, returned to Midtown's Park Tavern restaurant, Tuesday, with seducing performances by Kenny Lattimore, J. Holiday and Ginette Claudette. Dimly lit, under the Tavern's tented canopy, with light rain drizzling just overhead; music lovers indulged in a night of live entertainment, food and libations. 

Ginette Claudette, in Atlanta for the first time, opened the night introducing her new music to the audience. With musical influence that she credits to the church, her powerful vocals, searing rendition of Melanie Fiona's "4 AM," and an endearing style, showed the anticipant ATL crowd that she was ready to make her mark as a new artist.
