I know this is usually Fun Music Friday but in light of what just happened, I'm kind of not feeling Fun Music Friday's today. Sorry to be such a downer but just when I hit play to listen to Aaron Camper (who is quite dreamy I must say) cover John Mayer's "Stop This Train", I got a message that a very good friend of mine's mother had passed away at 47. Reading the email while listening to this song was pretty surreal.
I hate the fact that it has taken a tragedy to remind me that I completely dropped the ball on writing about him on BGLU so without further ado, allow me to introduce to some and present to others the awesomeness that is Aaron Camper. If you've never heard his music you definitely want to get on that because he's dope. Up until very recently he has mostly been known as a background and session singer for artists like Chris Brown, Jill Scott, Stevie Wonder and Fantasia. His free downloadable mixtape Welcome to My World Vol. 1 boasts collaborations with heavy hitters such as Brandy, Kanye West and Swizz Beats as well as some great tracks like "Julia", "Hold You Close" and a cover of Boyz II Men's "Water Runs Dry". Look for his upcoming EP "Madness" to be released on July 24. For more on Aaron Camper, check out www.aaroncampermusic.com .
