Top 10: Watch Jooma Mize performing ‘River’
Jooma Mize performed ‘River’ by Leon Bridges.
This track is taken from Bridges’ 2015 debut album ‘Coming Home’. A soul singer in the mould of ‘60’s R&B crooners like Sam Cooke and Otis Redding, Bridges’ song is slow and imploring, containing the lines ‘In my darkness I remember / Momma’s words reoccur to me / “Surrender to the good Lord / And he’ll wipe your slate clean.”’ It’s just been featured in the highly-rated sci fi show Lovecraft Country.
Jooma had our souls feeling refreshed and cleansed with a “floorless” performance of this soothing Leon Bridge’s’ gem.
Jooma got lauded by all the three Judges as one of the best male vocalists of the season, after a deeply emotional and moving performance of “River” by Leon Bridges.
