Kelly Rowland belted out “Work” during a flashy unveiling of the redesigned Mercedes-Benz C-Class sport sedan in Detroit Sunday night.
Her performance reflected the company’s desire to attract a younger, more diverse group of customers, and the pressure Mercedes and other car makers are under to make a big impression when rolling out new models. Instead of the usual, simple stage and seats, the venue inside the Westin Book Cadillac hotel felt more like a club or lounge.
Kelly was among guests invited to festive birthday bash for Tina Knowles last night. The party was threw up by Beyoncé and Solangein New Orleans, Louisiana. The famous siblings hired out the exclusive Muriel’s Jackson Square restaurant for the masquerade-themed shindig, at an estimated cost of more than $100,000.
Guests were asked to wear cocktail or formal attire, while they were warned that there would be no entry without a mask, with spares available at the door.
It would be pretty rude if two women who were otherwise complete strangers just busted in on your private karaoke party, unless of course those women were Beyonce and Kelly Rowland. That’s exactly what happened to a group of friends singing their hearts out at Sing Sing Karaoke in Miami on Tuesday night (Jan. 7), when Beyonce and Rowland decided to crash the party.
They walked in to find the girls singing Beyoncé’s “Party.” “They start dancing together, but they have no idea who it is,” said Pilicer. “And all of a sudden one of the girls looks at Kelly and says, ‘Oh, you look like Kelly Rowland,’ and then she looks at Beyoncé and goes, ‘Oh my God!’”
