Charles Bradley Belts (and Sweats) Out the Heartache at Bowery Ballroom

Fearsomely committed soul belter Charles Bradley made our Top 20 R&B Albums of 2013 list with his swaggering, retro-minded Victim of Love, but he's even better live, when he gets closer to fully embodying the all-out total-package grandeur of James Brown than you ever thought possible. He took to the stage at NYC's Bowery Ballroom Friday night and laid it all on the line — and even gave out a few hugs. Enjoy.
