Kelis at the McKittrick Hotel, New York City, April 23, 2014

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!
