No matter how good your Memorial Day weekend plans may be, Abby Dobson probably has you beat.
“I get to open for Common and Robin Thicke in Aruba… How incredible is that!” says the Freeport-based singer, who landed the opening slot at the Soul Beach Music Festival by winning a contest on BlackPlanet.com.
“I’m gonna walk away with wonderful experiences.”
Dobson was chosen by online voters for the festival, which also includes Jamie Foxx and Estelle, for her sultry R&B song “Born 2 Love U,” from the upcoming solo album she is currently wrapping up. With appearances on John Legend and Talib Kweli albums, Dobson is also part of the Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamber ensemble led by Greg Tate.
“Would you believe I dreamed of winning?” said Dobson. “And I actually did win! Here’s to making the world you dream.”
