Watch Bilal’s Performance on JR’s Feel Good Live Sessions

We didn't see this one coming.

Bilal is the latest album to grace the JR's Feel Good Live Sessions stage. The neo soul legend performs both recent and old songs, including "Sirens II" from his 2015 album In Another Life and "Longing and Waiting" from 2013's A Love Surreal.


The artist, together with his band, handles the performance like the legend he is, singing and performing with ease. His appearance on the popular series took many fans by surprise, as the show normally hosts South African artists (Nasty C, AKA, Riky Rick, Amanda Black and many others have all performed on the show), and a few from the continent (WurlD recently made an appearance).
