2020 NAACP Drive-in Soul Music Concert Photography
The NAACP drive-in soul music concert proved to be one bright spot for the Boston city during the difficult COVID times. The event was groundbreaking as it was a COVID safe concert organized, keeping social distancing and other mandates in mind. As a part of the Boston Freedom Weekend 2020, the free concert was held at the UMass Boston Bayside Expo Center parking lot and sent a wave of happiness across the audience. Courtney Boston and DJ Jeff 2Timez hosted the event. Five locals bands and singers performed at the event, and I got a chance to photograph it all. I enjoyed the concert and loved how the event images turned out.

During the drive-in concert, everyone had to wear a mask and stay within their socially distanced parking spots. It was great to feel normalcy, even for a brief period during the pandemic.
My favorite part of the night was when a recorded video statement of U.S. Representative Ayanna Pressly was played on the screen. She’s a local and national hero, so the entire crowd heard every word very intently. Athene Wilson, The Creatives, The Roots Alley Collective, Danny Rivera, and The Woo Factor performed at the soul music concert and entertained the audience to spread joy. Overall, it was a fantastic event. A special shout-out to Conan Harris.

I had a lot of fun shooting the NAACP drive-in concert as there were so many happy faces around me. Happy people, or just people, to be specific, are the reason why I also love doing wedding photography.
