Despite being sick with tonsillitis, Jorja Smith performed at The Wiltern on Monday.
Chicago native Ravyn Lenae, 19, opened for Smith.
Smith opened with her song “Lost & Found” – the titular piece of her most recent album and tour.
Lenae raises her pinky in the air and asks audience members to pinky promise that they will keep dancing throughout her set.
Ravyn asked the audience “personal questions” at several points in her set. She asked, “Have any of you ever fallen in love over the internet?,” before playing her song “Computer Luv.”
Smith said she wrote “Don’t Watch Me Cry” after a boy she liked told her that he would move to Los Angeles, but he didn’t, and she never saw him again.
Lenae credits OutKast with influencing her music.
Although Smith barely moved away from the microphone at first, she later began dancing around the stage and having the audience sing alternate lines in her song “Lifeboats.”
