Charles Bradley is one of those rare artists who can bring a crowd to tears, and that’s exactly what he did as he played a free public show in the gathering space at KEXP's new home. A longtime James Brown impersonator, Bradley began performing as himself at the age of 62, emerging just in time to join a soul revival alongside fellow Daptone Records signees Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings and Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens. Earning rave reviews for his heartfelt albums and hip-shaking performances, Bradley has been on the rise, selling out shows in major cities in multiple countries. Endearing, inspiring, and absolutely exhilarating, The Screaming Eagle of Soul seems like he can never stop giving. You can't help but move and be moved as you watch Charles Bradley's recent performance live on KEXP:
