The event was attended by over 200 invited guests from the Atlanta metro area. Garlin also performed a melody of his latest hits, after his Q&A segment, where he discussed a variety of topics, such as the future of Soca in the mainstream music industry. He commented on his recent success with his hit song “Differentology”, which was the first Soca song to win a Soul Train Award in 2013.
