Michael Schultz took me to see Anthony Hamilton, an artist who is part of the \”New Soul\” movement. He sang with such ease, it was like his voice was coming from the air around him. He was so centred, honest, deeply connected to what he had to sing about – Mike said it best when he burst out \”He\’s really feelin\’ it!\”. His back up singers were like family, they were all having so much fun together when they weren\’t wailin\’ with a holy gospel fervour that drove me to raise one hand and hold it, palm out, towards them – \”yes, yes, talk to me, tell it brutha SOUL!\”
There is nothing more inspiring than to witness a person doing what they love more than anything in the world – they were all just LOVIN being up there -
and sistah, out there in the crush of warm bodies and soft-kneed groovin\’ peeple, i gotta say
I could FEEL the love.
And that\’s what it\’s all about.
