On April 17th, 2015, Kollaboration Boston saw a whole new wave of talented artists pour their hearts out on stage. The atmosphere in Royale Nightclub was historic: guests were cheering for each performance and clapping for every high note, every move. During Derek Hsu’s performance, we even had a few guests jump up from their seats out of amazement. Our 4th showcase was a success. Our finalists were EastSide, Esther Chung, Harrison Kim, Juice, JDep, and Elise Go. The amount of talent we saw that night was unbelievable and we’re glad our guests were able to witness the magic on stage. Our guest performers, Unofficial Project, Derek Hsu, and danAKAdan were also important assets to the night.
All our performers made the night memorable. Some artists played original songs and others played original medleys, all the while inspiring the audience to move with their music. The Kollaboration Boston team worked hard for a year and a half to put the show together and it definitely shows. Adlai Grayson was the host this year, and as he did last year, he did an incredible job. After Harrison Kim’s “Chocolate Green” song, Adlai jumped right in and added, “Can I be your chocolate…green?” This is just a small example of how he was so witty and interactive with not just the guests, but the performers as well.
Overall, the show went smoothly and the guests were able to go back during actual club hours (10:30pm-2am) to party with Cedric Gervais as the DJ of the night. We would like to thank Amazon and Mint Nightlife as our official sponsors this year. It was a great kick off to the new Kollaboration season, and we’re excited for what’s in store next year for Kollaboration Boston!

Kollaboration has had an amazing start this year with some phenomenal open mic nights, festivals, and our first round of auditions for several Kollaboration cities. Creating a global community that stays grassroots is no easy feat, but it really is a testament to the passion and hard work of our network from volunteer staff, artists, and community partners. I’m constantly amazed at the support and the determination to empower through entertainment. As I said, 2015 has been incredible so far but there is much more to come! Please come out and enjoy one of our local Kollaboration events across North America, and check out our new online content featuring strong & diverse API voices!
