Ben L’Oncle Soul performed at SummerStage Tuesday night for Fete De La Musique with a completely showstopping live set. From the stylish tailored suits, to synchronized choreography to an undeniable stage presence, Ben L’Oncle Soul is just that – a soul man. A French native, this was the singer’s first performance in the States. Surely he’ll be back. Singing a few covers, and some originals from his selt-titled release, Ben sings half the record in french, the other half in english.
His Motown inspired songs have scored him opening slots for Musiq Soulchild, Raphael Saadiq and India Arie. Popular in his native France and other parts of Europe, there’s no question that this talented maverick’s star is bound to rise in the US as well.
