Last night (June 1), Summer Walker held her one-night-only performance in Atlanta, Georgia, and Twitter was very impressed.
On May 23, the R&B songstress announced the show, which featured her CLEAR series with a live orchestra at the Cobb Energy Centre. To help prepare for it, Walker called on fellow artist and creative director Teyana Taylor. The “Playing Games” singer shared a behind-the-scenes clip of the Harlem native teaching her some choreography.
“Say hi to my coach, Teyana Taylor,” Walker tweeted then. After watching her performance, fans praised Taylor’s efforts as they noticed a difference between that show and Walker’s previous concerts.

On Twitter, one user spoke about Taylor’s influence as a creative director in the music industry. “Teyana is so in her directing bag, it’s insane,” the fan tweeted. “Like, you can clearly see the power of her influence in these artists.”

Another user spoke about how relaxed the 27-year-old Atlanta native appeared on stage. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen Summer this comfortable and having so much fun on stage. And the set design was so good. Hats off to LVRN for tonight,” the person wrote.

A third handle expressed that she “sees” the A Thousand and One actress as she highlighted her entertainment gifts. “Teyana Taylor is a rare talent, and I want her to know I see her. I always have,” the user shared. “Only someone special can pour into another creative and bring the absolute best out of them whether it be film, videos or performances. She is brilliant, excellent, and everything under the sun.”
