92ZEW’s Reach for the Beach Winner, Jamell Richardson of Grand Bay Alabama, played the blues like nobody’s business when he opened the mainstage at Hangout Festival with MTV cameras blazing. Everyone was impressed with the south Alabamian’s style and energy. Sadly, just a few hours earlier, the world lost a legend and Jamell lost his idol, BB King. The Gulf Coast Blues Boy paid homage of course with a touching rendition of Thrill is Gone. Here’s the video that was streamed live on MTV.
Jamell even gave props to 92ZEW halfway through the song :-) Thank you Jamell. You Rock.
By the way, the video is making the music world rounds and picking up steam for fans. Aloe Blacc even shared it on his Facebook page. So share and share alike. Maybe we can make it viral, especially since King’s memorial service is this Saturday in Vegas.
