MMJotW: Cool

Image

I saw Anthony Hamilton perform at the Fox Theatre in Oakland a couple years ago and I was impressed by his performance and live vocals. His voice is so smooth and relaxing with strong roots in gospel. Listening to him sing (especially in this song) makes me want to lay down in the grass and feel the cool breeze pass over me. How does it make you feel?

MMJotW: Brown Sugar

2011-topic-d-angelo

This D’Angelo song is a classic soul jam that always sounds good. D’Angelo announced some new tour dates recently and he will be making a stop in Brooklyn. D’Angelo hasn’t been on the scene for awhile, but I have heard that he is still smooth live. I’m still debating if I should go see him…$60…what do you think? Will it be worth it?

MMJotW: Emily King’s “In My Evolution”

ImageThis week has been a much wanted and needed dose of fabulous and soulful live music. The first dose was my 2nd time seeing Emeli Sande live and I was pleasantly surprised to know that Emily King was opening for her. I have seen Emily King perform with Jose James before but this this is the first time that I have seen her play her own music and she was definitely able to hold her own. All of her music had the perfect amount of soul mixed with meaningful lyrics and beautiful melodies. I definitely want to see her live again.

Image“In My Evolution” is one of the songs that she performed and I really loved the lyrics especially since I have been appreciating the constant growth and learning that I am able to experience every day.  Enjoy! =)
