It’s been eight years since entertainer Tami Chin Mitchell touched a stage, but you couldn’t tell based on her performance on Sunday.
Tami along with her husband, Wayne Marshall, and sister Tessanne Chin performed on Appleton Estate’s ‘Reserve The Night’ event that was streamed online on Sunday afternoon.
Kicking off her performance with Hyperventilating, Tami didn’t miss a beat. She also did Frozen and Over and Over Again. She also added Capleton’s Or Wah and Damian Marley’s There For You to the mix.
Tessanne and Wayne would follow with their popular songs.
But for Tami, the performance was almost surreal since she hasn’t performed in several years.
“Wow guys. The love is so overwhelming. Thank you for the immense support and thanks so much tuning in. It’s been 8 years since I performed. It was a beautiful moment for me. Thanks for sharing that with me,” she said in a Twitter post.
Had a blast
On Instagram, she said a lot more, explaining what it felt like to watch the performance.
“To say we had a blast would be an understatement,” she said. “I had a full circle moment last night. The last time I performed I was 6 months pregnant with Jax. 8 years later, I sat in the living room watching this performance with Alex who kept saying “I remember that song!” I was simultaneously feeding my 16month old, trying to get my 4 year old to stop jumping on the couch and trying to tune out the now 7yr old who was begging me to change the channel. LOL. Talk about #realitycheck.”
She continued: “So much has changed but some things have remained the same; My daddy was right there beside me cheering me on, my hubby was staring at me lovingly (🥰🥰🥰) and the “after show high” is still a real thing. My love for music remains even if I only choose to do it every now and again for fun. I was reminded that our gifts don’t ever leave us, they sometimes just need a little waking up. A likkle acknowledgement. A likkle nudge.”
She also thanked Tessanne and Wayne for their support, as well as the Appleton Estate team that made the event possible. She also expressed gratitude to the “amazing” band and background vocalists, describing them as family.
“Lastly, to each and every person who tuned in, you filled our hearts with so much love. Thank you for showing up and showing out!!! We love you,” Tami said.
