Diagnosis: Time 2 raise your voice....
Andy Allo's performance of "People Pleaser" aired on Jimmy Kimmel Live and it was as funky on TV as it was live in person.
Unlike the video version, the live performance features Maceo Parker and Trombone Shorty.
I do not know when her performance of "If I Was King" will air yet. We imagine sometime soon.
There is some funk all over that CD. Check it out after watching "People Pleaser" above.-DocFB
Diagnosis: "Time To Raise Your Hand...."
Don't miss Jimmy Kimmel LIVE tomorrow night 11/20 as Andy Allo will be performing on the show.

The video world premiered at The Sayers Club in Los Angeles 2 weeks ago before being released world-wide today.
Diagnosis: Take Your Time.....
Before Andy Allo and PRINCE took the stage at The Sayers Club, the music video's for "Rock & Roll Love Affair" and "People Pleaser" were world premiered.
Prince's "Rock & Roll Love Affair" video was shown first. It is a performance clip that was filmed at his Paisley Park studios in Minneapolis. It features Andy Allo playing a heart-shaped guitar and Hannah Ford playing drums in the video.
Prince doesn't hide the words on the carpet of the NPG Music Club, his former web site that won a Webby and recieved accolades for the services and music it provided. Prince's video strengths have mostly been in performance videos such as "Musicology", "Call My Name", "Little Red Corvette", and "1999". Although videos such as "Black Sweat" were very good, his performance clips have been better.
The video was shot by Chris Robinson in color but sometimes shows behind the scenes camerawork in black & white. Prince is sporting the fro and shades in the entire video.
Later in the night, Prince asked me what I thought of Hannah in the video and I said "She is cool" and then Prince said "She is gonna make me look like a star" which got a laugh from Hannah.
Next was Andy Allo's "People Pleaser" video which was a full length video as well shot at Paisley Park Studios in Minneapolis in September.
It features her entire band with horn players along with close-ups of Andy singing and some profile shots as well. The video reminded me of old George Benson videos to where the musicians are actually an integral part of the concept of the video, which is rare nowadays.
The performance clip works well for Andy on "People Pleaser" and alos features a segment where words flash on the screen and back to Andy singing them.
Both video's are not low-budget and are quite good and polished in the sense of the musicianship is captured for all to see.
Prince and Andy debuting their new video's in a Hollywood nightclub is following the trend of Lana Del Rey and other's who have been doing so before the video's are released elsewhere.
Andy was pleased with the video and thanked the crowd during her set for allowing her to show it to them before anyone else.
There is no word when the video's will be out for the world to see, but as soon as we have more info on that or obtain the video, it will be shared here.-DocFB
Diagnosis: I believe in fairy-tales and Prince's and...Andy Allo...
The first single "People Pleaser" from "Superconductor" Andy Allo's new album is now available on I-Tunes!
The song features Andy along with the legendary Maceo Parker and Trombone Shorty. Trombone and Maceo sound like they are having a sax jam for sure!
Check out the clip above of "People Pleaser" above and go ahead and head over to Itunes to Download it.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Don't Miss Her On Jimmy Kimmel Next Week!
Andy Allo performed "People Pleaser" on Fox's Chicago Morning Show this Morning and also talked about the Rebuild The Dream foundation and the last "Welcome 2 Chicago" date which is tonight.
Andy says this is not the show to miss. We would have to agree with Janelle Monae going to be in the mix.
Andy also took a few questions from the morning hosts about what it has been like this past week in Chicago and performing with Prince. For the interview and performance and "Superconductor" release info and a photo of Prince and Andy jamming, click on the continue reading button below.
It is a little bit after midnight when I arrive at The Record Plant in Hollywood to talk with and listen to Andy Allo's "Superconductor" tonight. What I hear over the next few hours is an artist that is on the rise and willing to challenge herself and others around her to get there.
