Look at some of these live performances.  Who’s the best?  You be the judge.

How you sound as a result of a carefully engineered studio recording and an edited music video is one thing.  How you sound and look during a live musical performance is a very different thing.  There is a clear distinction.

James Brown was the greatest live performer I’ve ever seen, closely followed by Prince.  My next three are Earth, Wind & Fire, Michael Jackson and The Jacksons and Brian Culbertson — in that order.  Period, paragraph, end of sentence.” 

Honorable Mention – Larry Graham & Graham Central Station. (Be sure to watch the Larry Graham/Graham Central Station concert performance further down on this page).  And wait…there’s Aretha Franklin and Bobby Womack.  Too many artists to choose from.

Special Merit Award – Lenny Williams for his classic performance of “Cause I Love You” and to Maysa Leak for her heart-felt performances and consistency.
