Charles Bradley: "Why Is It So Hard?"

Email a Friend

We close today's show with a song that seems to be about one man's struggle with the American dream. New York funk and R&B singer Charles Bradley's life story is filled with poverty, misfortune, and unappreciated talent -- followed by an extraordinary turnaround. Last year he released his first full-length album, No Time for Dreaming, and joined us in the studio with his band - the Extraordinaires. We listen back to a performance of the song "Why Is It So Hard?"
