Cop a gander of Luke James!
The soulful singer styles and profiles in the latest issue of PEOPLE magazine, who recently named him one of their Sexiest Men Of 2013.
Still hard at work on his debut album ‘Made To Love’, the honor no doubt comes as major coup for the rising star – who counts the likes of Beyonce and Michelle Obama as fans.
Pin-up appeal and critical acclaim often prove quite the potent potion when combined, hence it’s a great look for the New Orleans native to be recognized in both regards heading into the release of his LP.
In other Luke news, fans can catch him in ‘Black Nativity’ – the new movie he stars in alongside Jennifer Hudson and Forest Whitaker next month.
