So, on my lunch break I was riding in my car tuned to V-103 when I heard on of the most soulful, beautiful voices I had heard in a long time. Noel Gourdin is his name and the name of the song he was singing acapella was called "The River". I IMMEDIATELY got back here and Google'd him baby!!!!!!!! It is so good to hear an artist with that true soulful sound in their voice.
While visiting his official website, I had the chance to hear another song called "Sorry I Led You On". I could've downloaded the whole cd but I decided that I am going to go out and support this brotha and purchase his cd. It will be well worth my $13.99. I'm excited this month. Real music is doing it's thing. Don't forget both Jazmine Sullivan and Keri Hilson also release their cd's this month. Sorry Jeezy and TI, yall might just get DOWNLOADED!!!!!!
Anywhoo, go to Noel's official site and take a listen for yourself. I hope he doesn't ever become commercial, like one of my old favorite neo-soul singers that is now managed by Matthew Knowles............. Noel will also be perfoming at tonight's V-103 R&B Soul Session hosted by Robin Thicke.
