Ciara performs at Black Eyed Peas' Peapod benefit concert [video]
So, R&B vixen Ciara may be begging to be set free from Jive, but the 25-year-old put aside the label drama for one night, albeit for a good cause, to perform at the Black Eyed Peas' seventh Peapod Benefit Concert on Thursday at the Music Box Theater in Hollywood.
Though her latest album, "Basic Instinct," hasn't proved to be a hitmaker -- the album debuted at No. 43 on the Billboard chart -- she was in true form in a set that offered up her best-known tracks ("Goodies," and "1,2 Step"), as well as current single "Gimmie Dat."
