He has also that extra charm and good natured approach to his performance that makes the audience open up to him. Surprisingly to me, he had a lot of young fans at the concert. Soul isn’t exactly the hottest musical genre these days, but kudos to him for making that happen.

He also did a good version of Steve Winwood’s I’m A Man. James Morrison was voted best male actor at the Brit Awards in 2007, and his two first CDs have sold about 5 million copies. After seeing him on stage, I will say he definitely deserves his success.
