In Focus: Vanessa Carlton at Alive at 5

On Thursday, June 27, Vanessa Carlton performed at Albany’s Alive at 5, located at Jennings Landing, on the waterfront of Albany.

Vanessa Carlton, originally from Milford, Pennsylvania and quickly moved to fame after her first single “A Thousand Miles” moved into the Billboards Top Ten. She was recently on tour with Stevie Nicks and is now making a few stops for summer concerts.

Carlton brought a large crowd to Jennings Landing on Thursday night to share songs from her first to her most recent album. Along with her songs “White Houses” and “Ordinary Day” she sang a few covers such as “Dreams” by Stevie Nicks. Carlton’s music had the whole crowd old and young dancing and singing along. The Alive at 5 stage created a beautiful back drop of the Hudson River and the golden hour light lit up the stage.

Carlton’s performance left us all signing ” A Thousand Miles” on the way to our cars. Be sure to see the perfect summer concert series at Jennings Landing before the series ends.
