Along with the release of her album, The Game, Reid helped The Beat 94.5 roll in the summer season performing alongside four other Canadian artists at the radio stations annual Beat Beach Ball.
Strutting on stage, Reid has come a long way from the 15 year-old runner up on YTV’s The Next Star. Deck out in dark jeans and a white top, Reid kicked off her set with the title track off her record, “The Game” followed by “XO”.
Encouraging audience members to sing along Reid threw in a cover of Jessie J’s “Price Tag” before stripping down to simply an acoustic guitar for “Watch me Soar”.
Closing out her set, Reid got all of two words out before the audience loudly joined in overpowering the mic’d songstress. With a big smile on her face and a little help from the crowd, Reid closed out her set with “Alone Again”.
With her power house vocals and sultry yet school girl stage presence, Reid has emerged from the reality TV world unscathed, with a solid fan base, a debut album under her belt, and a summer scheduled packed with tour dates.
“I’m very glad I got to grow up in a time with YouTube”
