Charles Bradley – Live at La Cigale

Watch. Watch how sweet it is, to turn the tables around. Watch him, this man, who made up for the lost years, filled them with hope and patience. A man whose time has finally come. Check him out, this sexagenarian who would put any young kid to shame. Watch him get down on his knees from the first song, misty-eyed as if he was thanking God for giving him the power to sing, finally, screaming out as if this was his first and last chance.

Take in the sincerity, the strength, the energy. Take in a man who gives himself to the music. Take in Mr. Charles Bradley, 64 years of age, showing you his faith, lifting mountains.
