There are many live performances by Rahsaan Patterson that could qualify as classics. Just go on YouTube and type his name in the search bar and you’ll be inundated by clips that will make you wish you there when he hit that high note, or in the audience when he took his time to share his gift with the world, sometimes taking almost five minutes to indulge the audience.
And you wait because you know something great is in store.
That was definitely the case last night in New York City, when RAH! stormed the stage at BB King’s Bar and Grill and turned the place out. A definite highlight of the show is when he did exactly what was described in the previous paragraph, putting his all into his classic song “The Best,” which was described by one listener as the best breakup song ever.
Take your time, sit on down and take a look at this performance. If you weren’t in the crowd that night, this is the next best thing. And also why we can’t wait for RAH! to drop his new project next month. Enjoy, after the jump.
