Sabrina Claudio Seduces Outside Lands With Her Effortless Sensuality R&B's Rising Star Has An Undeniable Stage Presence
SAN FRANCISCO, CA-
“… If I had to give an award for the sexiest performance at Outside Lands, hands down I would award it to Sabrina Claudio.
Sabrina Claudio is an R&B singer who knows how to ballad, and she does it damn well. Full stop. When she sings, it’s almost like she’s whispering love lyrics directly into your ear. It’s that intimate. Her 2018 album No Rain, No Flowers, has Sabrina’s breathy vocal stylings on full display, and she delivered the same during her performance at Outside Lands.
For music that is decidedly R&B, I was pleasantly surprised to see the huge turn out for her set. Perhaps all of the fans who came out for Ms. Jackson later in the evening knew that this performance would be a nice, and fitting, appetizer for what was to come later in the evening. Regardless, it was heartening to see so many people come out and watch an R&B singer do her thing.
As I watched Sabrina perform, I was struck by how she commanded the stage without having to hardly move. I was reminded me of the time that Sade captivated me at the Hollywood Bowl, and Sade didn’t move half as much as Sabrina did. It’s the calm cool that Sabrina projected from center stage that really captivated the audience. As she purred her way through songs, every slight movement was syncopated to a beat, with each hand gesture or knee bend done in a sensually seductive way. Sabrina owned that stage and she barely had to move at all. Clearly, I was impressed …”
