Throughout the night, revelers enjoyed live musical performances from Jagged Edge, 112 and Better Than Ezra.

The large crowd prompted a huge police presence. Channel 2's Michael Seiden saw dozens of uniformed officers and other members of law enforcement who worked overtime to make sure everyone stayed safe.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms spoke to Seiden before the event. She described 2018 as a year filled with ups and downs and shared her vision for 2019.

“I’d like for us to just have sustained happiness so that we can continue to do our jobs with joy and make sure we are doing the best that we can do for all the people of the City of Atlanta," she said.
