One of the most successful songs of all-time, Mariah Carey‘s 2005 hit ‘We Belong Together’ is undoubtedly a classic. Hence, it was only fitting that one R&B’s most revered voices – in the form of Joe - was picked to perform the song at last night’s BMI Urban Awards.
Watch as Carey’s ‘Thank God I Found You’ comrade soars like only he can below…
A spectacularly difficult song to sing, Joe nailed it with finesse. The belting and runs after the bridge? Absolutely epic.
That said, watching this has us a little ticked off that so few R&B males today are in the business of “sanging”. The incredible Luke James aside, who else is flexing pipes like this in today’s day and age? Here’s hoping last night served as an inspiration to the artists in attendance to “do better, be better”.
