Charles Bradley - part 1

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 5 March 2014 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

It was a privilege to witness a live performance by Soul Music legend Charles Bradley. The raw power and deep emotion in his voice revives the golden age of Soul Music from the 1960s and 1970s. His Extraordinaires - Bradley's backing band - are also a tight and funky outfit. Bradley is the screaming eagle of soul - and on this night the show lived up to every expectation.

Charles Bradley was performing at a free outdoor gig on March 1 at the Enlighten festival.

Bradley made his debut record at the age of 62. You can read more about his inspiring life story here and here.

Check out a live version of his song The World (is Going Up in Flames).
