Vancouver BC - Jorja Smith gave a electric and intimate performance at the Biltmore Cabaret on Saturday evening that left a sold out audience in awe of her immense beauty and talent.
The night kicked off with a opening performance from 19-year-old singer/songwriter Ama Lou who sang tracks from her debut EP DDD that set the tone for the evening.

She showed off her range of artistic abilities performing new songs like the socially conscious rap infused “Lifeboats” and an a emotionally personal ballad to a lost friend called “Goodbyes”. Jorja ended the show with the upbeat fan favourite “On My Mind”.
