Charlotte Cardin - Drive

Charlotte Cardin is a soulful pop singer from Montreal. In 2013 she auditioned for the singing competition La Voix, making it all the way to the top 4. However, it wasn’t until 2016 when she released her debut album Big Boy which helped launch her career. And only a year later she released her sophomore album, Main Girl, another hit.

The video for Drive is shot in a continuous take while Cardin walks down what appears to be a highway bridge. Her voice is full of soul as she sings her way across the road. The song is captivating,m from the guitar that is left to drift in a void to her vocals that carry through Cardin’s vacant surroundings.

Alicia Keys and Jay-Z to Perform ‘Empire State of Mind’ on 2024 Tony Awards

The song always packs a special jolt of excitement when performed in New York City.

It was too perfect an opportunity to pass up: Alicia Keys and Jay-Z will perform “Empire State of Mind” during the 77th Annual Tony Awards on Sunday, June 16. The show is set to air live on both coasts from the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City (8:00-11:00 p.m. ET/5:00-8:00 p.m. live PT) on CBS, and to stream on Paramount+ in the U.S.

“Empire State of Mind” is featured in Hell’s Kitchen, the musical based on Keys’ early life and music which is nominated for 13 Tony Awards. That put it in a tie with the play Stereophonic as this year’s most-nominated production.
