Popular live music series, Keesing Live, top-billed the songbird. Anderson, who is putting finishing touches on her first album, told fans she wrote several songs during the break, which she identified as introspective. She said the self-searching period was impetus for a musical resurgence.
She also lauded the mentorship of Grammy-winning musicians Sly and Robbie.
For the Keesing Avenue gig the artiste delivered new and old songs as well as popular covers.
Anderson engaged the audience with humorous monologues amid flawless vocals. A heady snippet of Madonna's Like A Virgin, a rousing duet of Ed Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud, and an homage to Dennis Brown complemented her signature tracks such as Rebel, Haffi Come Back, and Coming Over.
Always the versatile entertainer, Anderson sang, danced and 'deejayed' to the delight of patrons. But she also took time to express gratitude to everyone who has helped with the programmes of her Reach One Child Foundation.
One of the initiatives provide financial assistance to rounded children who excel in academics, art and social services. The foundation's motto is 'Each one, teach one to reach one'.
There were also well-received sets from Nattali Rize and Notis, singer Chevaughn, and the Katalys Crew.
