Akon called on MySpace to help celebrate the release of his new album ‘Freedom’. Just as the sun went down in New York City on December 1st, hundreds of fans lined up around the China Club for the free show. DJ Cipha Sounds of Hot 97 started the night off for the packed crowd right before Shontelle took the stage, performing songs off her latest release including her ladies’ anthem ‘T-Shirt’.
Akon then hit the stage, joined by Kardinal Offishall in a performance of ‘So Dangerous’. The evening wrapped up with SRC founder Steve Rifkind honoring Akon with a plaque for 5 million copies of ‘Konvicted’ sold worldwide. Watch highlights via MySpace below.
