You heard the song, now see the video. It’s Chrisette Michele’s video for “Epiphany.” The first single off her album of the same name, due May 19. That was a quick song-to-video punch. Given the subject matter, the video is pretty much what you’d expect. What gives it multi-view value is Chrisette Michele’s undeniably smoking vocals. Look, Ma! Not a single Auto-Tuned note.more..

“It seems like every word that I sang was already on the tip of my tongue before I even got to the studio. One song I dreamt, came to the studio the producer had music that already went with it and then my new friend, writer filled in the blanks like only he and I can! It was just so fateful. God is always providing!”
The first single is called “Epiphany”.more..

Thank Chad and Guy for YouTube. I’m on the computer last night, in the finals of NBA Live, and David Letterman is on, in a background noise kinda way. Letterman announces that Nas is about to perform and I’m thinking it must be an old show. His album’s been out for months. So do I pause for the 3 minutes and change it would take to record it? Nope.
I did pause, frozen from a truly dynamic performance of “Can’t Forget About You”, with Chrisette Michele.
It was an old show though. Taped in February.more..
