After the passing of the morning thunderstorm, American rising pop singer-songwriter Bazzi performed his first-ever festival at Bonnaroo’s that Tent Sunday afternoon.
Bazzi’s groovy beats and twinkling synths prompted the late-arriving audience to sway — and sometimes sing — along with songs from his first album, “Cosmic.” Displaying sharp, crisp vocals, he introduced each song by calling out its title and asking the onlookers if they were doing OK.
Fans waited patiently for him to perform his hit “Mine,” which came near the end of the show. He was saving the best for last.
Ending the chorus of “Mine,” Bazzi asked if he could perform it in a cappella with the crowd. He then jumped down to the rails in the front row and onto a step to reach for his fans.
They dutifully sang along with him, remarkably on-key.
