Mos Def Plays a Free Show Downtown Tonight



    It's hard to imagine how Brooklyn's own Mos Def could possibly make his captivating live performance stand out any more than it already does. The actor/rapper is a born showman and his stage totally shines (at least every time I've seen him).

    Tonight, Mos hits the World Financial Center Winter Garden for something a little different than the soul-infused shows he's come known for.

    The Brooklyn Philharmonic will be joined onstage by Mos, Mellissa Hughes, the Brooklyn Youth Chorus and others to premier a number of new and original compositions.

    These will include arrangements of Mos Def's original songs, as well as some other world premier compositions.

    The entire thing goes down at 7 p.m. tonight.
