“’Brooklyn in the Summer’ is a soulful ballad that reminds me of classics like Al Green‘s ‘Let’s Stay Together’ and Earth Wind & Fire’s ‘After the Love Has Gone.’” “If you’ve ever fallen deep in love you can relate. If you haven’t yet, then this is what real love feels like!” ~ Aloe Blacc
The set followed up Blacc’s collaboration as vocalist and co-writer on well-known DJ/producer Avicii’s track “Wake Me Up,” a song that hit the Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on its Hot Dance Club Songs and Dance/Electronic Songs charts, as well as topping charts in more than 100 countries and selling close to 5 million copies in the U.S. and streamed half a billion times.
Blacc’s hit single “The Man” topped the charts with sales of more than 2.7 million and Lift Your Spirit received a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Album at the 57th Grammy Awards.
Most recently Blacc served as the guide for the MacGillivray Freeman/Brand USA film America’s Musical Journey traveling throughout the country as he traced the roots of America’s music and followed the footsteps of Louis Armstrong through the colorful locales and cultures where America’s music was born. Blacc notes that one of his main ambitions is to use his popularity to affect social change while continuing to infuse his music with a mindful positivity.
This is one for the ages! Blacc’s vocal artistry is something to behold…song for song, he’s in my top 5 for vocalists of any gender. 5/5 for me ~ JD
