On a promo tour for his upcoming release, Eric Bellinger stopped by the HotNewHipHop studios and gave a wonderful performance of Kiss Goodnight from his Rebirth album.

One of the best things about an acoustic performance is that is shows the singer’s voice its natural state.  Eric Bellinger sounds pretty good on his pre-recorded material, but the lack of autotune on this version shows that he often holds back when he sings with heavier production.  His runs are strong but not overdone and he shows that he can transition easily between keys.  Our only disappointment was that he didn’t do the whole track.

Cuffing Season, Bellinger’s second album, will be released July 10.  It was moved from July 7 due to adherence to the new international release date.
