Love...Passion...Sex...An Evening with Raheem DeVaughn

Friday Night I attended the Raheem De’Vaughn Show at City Winery Chicago.  It was my first time seeing Raheem DeVaughn live and he exceeded my expectations.  Art, Poetry and Soul Music in one incredible evening.   Raheem DeVaughn is an artist who knows how to connect with his audience.  He is true to himself in a time when some soul and R&B Artists try to fit within the current trends in order to remain relevant.   His style, his sound and his artistry is rooted in soul.  It is evident that it runs through his blood.  Throughout his performance I was reminded of the genius of Marvin Gaye, Sam Cooke, Donnie Hathaway and other R&B greats in how DeVaughn  sang and performed.  His soulful and melodious voice captivated an audience who has followed his now 10+ year career.
