Ashanti was set to perform at Stony Brook’s University’s ‘Back to the Brook’ concert but after only selling 24 tickets the University was forced to cancel the show. The student population is 2500 so you can imagine what that concert would’ve looked like. Teyana Taylor was the original headliner but pulled out last minute due to unforseen circumstances.
