VIDEO: Gregory Porter’s “Illusion”

It’s rare that I come across a soulful singer that is simply a soulful singer, not trying to do more than they’re capable, but hearing them makes you want to hear more. This is Gregory Porter, and while they’re also calling him jazz, I hope that doesn’t limit him as just a jazz singer, as some will lead you to believe. The song is taken from his new album, Water (Motema), and while that was released half a year ago, don’t let that be the reason you wouldn’t want to hear this. Click the play button, listen, and hear a voice that you may have been longing for, or didn’t know you were.
