Just in case you missed it babes, scribble down in that pretty planner of yours that April 22nd is now and forever to be known as Chloe Bailey Day in Atlanta!
Following a surprise appearance at one of ATL’s historically black colleges and universities, Morehouse College, the star received a gracious hometown welcome and a day in her honor right at the tip of Taurus season.
The Treat Me and Have Mercy songstress was in town during a stop on her In Pieces tour giving another legendary performance of those very songs at The Eastern. She even reunited with her sister, Halle Bailey, on stage for a performance. The Little Mermaid lead took a break from under the sea to join the star onstage to give us the Ungodly Hour duo we missed while the Disney film was in production.
During the Morehouse ceremony, Bailey sat down with A.R. Shaw, executive editor of Atlanta Daily World, to talk about her newly released album, giving insight on several tracks from the project. She also gave the real and raw on being booked, busy, and balanced amid dropping new music, a recent movie feature (Praise This), and a TV series role (Swarm) all within Q1 of 2023!
Commissioner Natalie Hall presented the songwriter and actress with the proclamation during the ceremony. Following the event, the star hung back for a Q&A to speak with students from Morehouse and Spelman. She was presented with the “Simply, Thank YOU” award from publicist and founder of the “Simply, Thank YOU” program, Lisa George. The star took to Instagram and the stage following the event to celebrate another “magical” tour night.
The recognition comes at a pivotal time for the singer-songwriter after receiving harsh criticism from the online community following the release of her debut solo project. Along with the receipts from performances on-stage, on-screen, and even online, this well-deserved recognition is just another notch on Bailey’s belt to prove she is indeed, THAT GIRL.
