Such a soulful voice!
With a hint of raspiness in her vocal performance, Jess Glynne has a unique and memorable voice, and it’s one she’s put to good use in her new album I Cry When I Laugh!
Now, the singer — who went platinum with her album in just ten weeks in the United Kingdom — is taking her talents stateside with a brand new video for her single Take Me Home (above) AND a North American Tour beginning in January!
Speaking about the inspiration behind Take Me Home, Jess was honest about how emotional she gets in the video:
“This is a song about the need to have someone who cares when you are at your most vulnerable. It’s a very emotional song for me and I have to admit it brings me to tears when I sing it live or when I made the video with Declan (Whitebloom). I hope it makes people realize that they should reach out to others at a time of need.”
So touching and poignant! And you can really feel the raw energy and emotion come across in the really simple but effective video!
Now, the British singer will be gracing America with her presence on a month-long cross-country tour, beginning January 18 in Washington, DC, and going through mid-February when it ends in El Lay!
