If you want to know why BJ The Chicago Kid holds a special place in our musical hearts, all you have to do is take a look/listen to this less-than-three minute video of him performing his song Turnin’ Me Up from his debut album.

Barely a second after introducing himself to the crowd, the singer goes into the track with strength and effortlessness as he seduces our ears with the kind of performance that many male R&B singers wish they could give.

Your only regret on this one will be that you weren’t there to hear the rest of the set.
