Friend of the site Andy Allo did a really cool acoustic cover of "At Your Best" by Aaliyah!
We know that the Isly Brothers did it first but a generation found the song through Aaliyah and even Adny credited it as an Aaliyah cover.
Andy is currently in Japan doing a handful of shows and will be back in California by the end of the month for a show in her hometown of Sacramento.

Diagnosis: One has to wonder how the Pop/R&B game would be if Aaliyah was still alive. Yes, Beyonce, I am looking at you my dear.
Andy Allo recently performed "Yellow Gold" on Good Day Sac and we LOVE the performance!!!
She is about to start her European tour so if you can catch her shows, do it! You will not regret it!-DocFB
Diagnosis: Do you have that Batman and Robin thing going on?
Andy Allo performed at Hotel Cafe on Monday, the last night of her residency to a packed house. Seconds after she took the stage, Prince glided in to catch the show.
Andy Allo kicked off her 45+ minute set with a new song that was quite beautiful but no title was given. Next was a funky version of "Yellow Gold" from her album "Superconductor" followed by a rock-sounding "Wait In Vain" by Bob Marley. Allo followed that up with another song from Superconductor, the beautifully-tinged "Nothing More" which I was extremely happy to hear live.
Andy Allo will be starting an acoustic residency at Hotel Cafe in Hollywood starting October 7th. There will be four shows in total and then she will take off in her car for a 5 city tour.
You can purchase tickets to the Hollywood shows HERE.
All other tour dates will go on sale next week!
We talked to Andy yesterday and asked her about the "SuperConductor Reloaded" and she said she doesn't know too much about it right now.
I had to ask! Hope you understand Andy!
Those in L.A. and around, get your tickets now to this intimate venue!-DocFB
Diagnosis: Hope we get to hear "Yellow Gold" like above....
Prince is all about Livestream. In a conversation with him at Paisley Park, he expressed this to me. He compares Livestream to a boxing match that you watch live but if you already know the results, it is not as interesting to watch. Some would say with at least a boxing match, you know when it is going to happen, but that doesn't concern Prince.
"Livestream is the future. Livestream is now. We go live and you are either there or not. It is about being in the now."
For the past month, Prince has used livestream to drop rehearsal jams, play unreleased tracks, put his songs in the mix, and have the camera on while he was performing at Paisley Park a couple weeks back.
Andy Allo Unfresh Summer Tour – Brussels, Amsterdam and Paris
Andy Allo ended her UnFresh Summer Tour in Europe with a brilliant performance at La Maroquineire in Paris. It was a short tour to promote her forthcoming album with remixes of her first cd ‘UnFresh’.
Also, Andy Allo has just been added to the North Sea Jazz Festival line-up on July 12th and will be an hour show starting at hour show starting at 21:30.
The shows all sold out very quickly, showing that the fans were very excited to see the singer/songwriter/musician perform her music. The last time Andy was touring in Europe was with Prince and the NPG.
The mini tour kicked off on Saturday, June 29 at the Couleur Café Festival in Brussels, where she performed a very funky set with a full band, including a 4 piece horn section. Andy sang songs from both UnFresh and Superconductor. A beautiful balance of both records that showcased her journey. She opened the concerts with the song 'When Stars Collide' and closed with the funky single from Superconductor titled, "People Pleaser". In between those songs anything was possible.
A night after rocking the Billboard Music Awards Pre-Party, Andy Allo attended the Billboard Awards in a smashing dress and was interviewed by Billboard.
Andy talked about working with Prince and I'm not so sure the interviewer knew that when she asked if Andy was star-struck to see anyone tonight and asked if Prince was someone who would do that to her? Guess she didn't know about "When Stars Collide" now did she?-DocFB

Andy Allo interviewed with Billboard earlier this month where she talked about working with Prince and performed 2 songs for the magazine.
Allo talks about Prince co-writing 3 songs with her and the experience calling it "incredible and educational" and would just watch him. Also...she teaches the people around her a fish song. All right then.
