Lianne La Havas Brings ‘Is Your Love Big Enough?’ to 2013 Central Park SummerStage [PHOTOS]

Natelege Whaley,

As the sun set over Central Park Saturday (July 27), Lianne La Havas made her SummerStage debut, holding effortless command of the audience with her soft and rich vocals. The singer, who hails from London, was joined by soulful Danish duo Quadron, who opened the show, and pop-rock singer LP from New York.

Switching between a black-and-white guitar and another sky blue-and-white electric guitar throughout her set, La Havas treated her fans to live performances of every song off her 2012 debut album, ‘Is Your Love Big Enough?’ — a collection of the beauty and toils of a young woman’s heart. The project has attracted an international following within months of its release.

Wearing a red-and-blue dress with the word “Lazy” imprinted across the chest, La Havas walked onstage to her signature intro, Erykah Badu‘s ‘On & On,’ and then sang her single, ‘Elusive.’ At times she paused to speak. “There’s so much love here tonight,” she said to the crowd. “Can I sing you a love song?” before she proceeded to perform ‘Don’t Wake Me Up.’

Before she left the stage, the songbird asked her guests to be human percussionists and stomp and clap along as she performed ‘Is Your Love Big Enough?’ “I’d like to keep performing but, I only have one album,” she said laughing.

Other songs she performed Saturday night included ‘Forget,’ ‘Au Cinema,’ ‘Gone,’ ‘Tease Me’ and a cover of Stevie Wonder‘s ‘Master Blaster (Jammin).’
