Charles Bradley doesn't just sing the blues. He's lived them!
The soul singer has lead a very difficult life, including his own near-death experience and the murder of his brother. He worked a series of odd jobs, including being a James Brown impersonator. It was while doing his best Godfather that he got discovered. And so began his music career - well into his 50s!
Bradley's song Heartaches & Pain is dripping with authenticity and nuance. This is some real shit! Powerful! Beautiful!

We love Eric Hutchinson. We've been supporting him since 2007. And we love that we LOVE his new album so much!
His skillful blend of blue-eyed soul and pop is so melodic and hypnotic!
He's like Stevie Wonder meets Billy Joel!
We can't stop listening to the new album and songs like Talk Is Cheap.

We are LOVING the intimate vibe Duets gives us!!
Sure, they're performing in an auditorium like the other musical competition series, but there's something about Kelly Clarkson's latest venture that makes us feel like we're in our own exclusive lounge!!
Just take John Legends' performances for example! If we didn't know any better, we'd think we were spying on him and Bridget Carrington! Their stunning performance of Tonight (Best I Ever Had) was smoooth seduction!
You gotta check it out (above)!!! And you really have to watch Johnny Gray give it his all with Ordinary People. He is a true voice of soul! …AFTER THE JUMP!

This is absolutely KILLER! Such a voice! Such a talent!
And to think, if America would have had their way all those years ago, she might not have been standing on that stage! For shame!
