Jazmine Sullivan is definitely my latest girl crush.
She dropped by the office recently and I felt like a grandma not knowing anything about her. I don't watch much tv outside of CNN, a VH1 reality show when I can and HBO On Demand, and I dont listen to the radio unless Im listening to Steve Harvey as I get ready for work, so this one had slipped past me, and Jess or India or any of my other regulars who send me youtube and every other kind of link during the day, hadn't put me on.
And Im glad they didnt because it made my first listen to this singer that more special - her voie live with not a single note of music. After she waltzes in the room so humble and fly, and way prettier than her pictures, she says she will sing 'In Love With Another Man' and she goes on to break down a love she feels so deep, how can it be wrong? Every single emotion in that song came through her voice. She sang a few other songs, including her single with Missy, but I kept hearing the words of the first one - and thoughtful on a love that deep.
Simply amazing. I listened to her singing that song dozens of times this week on my ipod. Her voice is really an instrument that whatever she sings, you swear you feel. I love my Philly singers. I know Im late, but I happily hopped on her bandwagon. Play on sister . . .play on
