That is exactly what happened when Avery Sunshine performed at Space in Evanston, Illinois. She immediately, got the audience singing with I've Got Sunshine. The crowd continued to sing along to popular tunes by Areatha Franklin, Michael Jackson and Luther Vandross.

One of the highlights of the evening was her stirring rendition of Safe in His Arms, which was recorded by the legendary Thompson Community Singers of Chicago.
