Will Russ Jr.:
From the city that gave us Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and The Temptations comes another Detroit Motown miracle: Will Russ, Jr. Singing with the silkiness and depth of a vocal legend, Will Russ Jr reinvigorates the standards of soul with a style all his own. Learn why such artists as Mavis Staples, Ray Charles, Brian McKnight, and Michael Bolton have worked with this memorable talent.
