Ro James, Jessie J and Luke James Honor Toni Braxton at 2017 Soul Train Awards [VIDEO]
Before Toni Braxton received the Legend Award at the 2017 Soul Train Awards, the veteran R&B singer was serenaded by three talented R&B singers who performed some of her classic songs.
Soulful vocalists Ro James, Jessie J and Luke James saluted Ms. Braxton with their beautiful renditions of “Seven Days,” “You Mean the World to Me” and “Unbreak My Heart,” respectively. All three singers delivered their own delicate spin to Braxton’s indelible tunes.
However, it was Luke James who stole the show. The Grammy-nominated singer came out wearing a glittery, see-through turtleneck (which showed off his six-pack abs) that had the audience - and even Ms. Braxton - clutching their pearls. James also brought down the house when he hit that high falsetto note at the end.
Everyone did a phenomenal job, but we have a hunch that everyone is going to be talking about Luke James' performance at the water cooler on Monday. On Twitter, folks are loving both James's abs and his vocal abilities.
Check out some of the fans' reactions below and the Toni Braxton tribute performance above.
