Hamptons 100 Songs of Summer #82
“Tonight” by Jessica Sanchez featuring Ne-Yo
Jessica Sanchez captured America’s heart when she projected her beautiful voice on Season 11 of American Idol on Fox. Just 16 years old, she persevered through tough judging to the top two and held strong. Though she failed to become “The Next American Idol,” Sanchez’s love of music and superstar charisma propelled her career and eventually led to this collaboration with pop music and rhythm and blues artist, Ne-Yo.
“Tonight,” written by Ne-Yo and recorded on Sanchez’s studio album, Me, You & Music, debuted on this year’s American Idol stage. Sanchez said the song is about people that are usually stressed out, adding, “Everybody has problems and everything, and ‘Tonight’ is a song about going out that night and having the best night of your life.” This song will certainly light up the Hamptons summer nights and endure as a dance club favorite.
