Luke James Performs “I Want You” on Verses & Flow

Luke James, the R&B singer with new-school style and old-school soul, performed his single "I Want You" on TV One’s variety show, Verses & Flow, last week.  Written by Reservoir songwriter Danja, "I Want You" is a monster of a track in itself, with soulful choral arrangements, an infectious topline melody, and, when performed live, peppy horn instrumentation.  Compounded by Luke James’ undeniably powerful pipes, the song is a true show-stopper.  Luke is signed to New Age Rock Stars, or N.A.R.S., the record label established by Danja and legendary sound engineer Marcella "Ms. Lago" Araica.
