Soul Fixin'

Just Trying To Stay 'Cool'
Anthony Hamilton was gone for a minute but he has made a soulful return with the release of his latest single and video for 'Cool.' Anthony Hamilton is definitely cool throughout the video, even in the face of every day struggles. David Banner's rap is far from cool, the song would be much better without it. Sorry David. Needless to say, the video has a great feel good Southern vibe to it. I feel like taking a trip down south after watching the video. The Point Of It All, Hamilton's upcoming release, drops on December 2. AH describes the sound on his upcoming set as feel good music, "I've taken fans to church and baptized them; there are those who say I've healed them with my music. Now we're going to boogie in the name of the Lord." In the meantime, the soul singer is taking his show on the road, making stops in NYC, Baltimore, Cleveland and Houston.
