Buzz Artist: Yebba Smith
Something you should know about me is that I DO NOT give vocalist the benefit of the doubt. There is no “innocent until proven guilty” esque verdict here; you suck until proven otherwise. Now with that said… YEBBA YEBBA YEBBA! OK! So Lalah Hathway, Jazmin Sullivan, Adele, and new comer Hannah Reid had a baby and birthed Yebba Smith! Distinctive qualities of those artist shine in this voice but not more than Yebba herself! The Memphis, Arkansas native sang and myself, along with the dozens of youtubers already covering her original song metled.
My Mind could have been the typical cry of a broken heart if it were sang by anyone else but this woman sang drenched in pain. I felt every word and note spilled from her mouth. I can’t lie, my guard was destroyed by the beauty of her declaration and I was moved to tears (real men cry). Damn man… All in all, she deserves to be heard! Check out the emotional performance below! And if you know her, or follow her on twitter @YebbaSmith tell her the streets are watching!
