One day after the release of her fifth album, the SPIN Essential Food, Kelis took the stage of Manhattan’s McKittrick Hotel for a performance to celebrate the release. We were at the intimate show —so intimate, in fact, that her thirteen-piece band barely fit on the stage— and took photos as she delivered her soulful performance of funk-laden R&B. Enjoy!
