Why do we like this?
If listening to some old school R&B and soul music doesn't give you a warm fuzzy feeling, well, then I don't know what will. If you have a record player, there's really nothing better than busting out some Al Green, Otis Redding, or Marvin Gaye vinyls and calling it a night.

A few years back, my boyfriend starting listening to a singer named Lee Fields, a man who's been around forever making soulful music and tearing it up on stage, despite his age.

Charles Bradley reminds me of Lee Fields, but his story has a twist. It took him nearly his entire life to get to where he is today, and finally recorded his first full-length album, No Time For Dreaming (a true labor of love!), in the past year. Read his full biography here -- the man has had a crazy life, which at certain points involved cooking for 3500 people a day, hitchhiking across the U.S., and living in Alaska and Poland.

He definitely deserves all the acclaim he can get.
