Wow this is one film I HAVE TO SEE! As my loyal readers will know Charles Bradley is one of my all time favourites with hands down the most fascinating story of all! There is a documentary about him and it will be screened at SXSW and hopefully all over the country so we can all see it! Here is the blurb for the film:
Charles Bradley: Soul of America captures the extraordinary late in life rise of 62 year old aspiring soul singer Charles Bradley, whose debut album, "No Time For Dreaming," took him from a hard life of poverty, homelessness and tragedy and rocketed him onto Rolling Stone magazine's top 50 albums of 2011. This documentary follows Charles from his 62nd birthday through the electrifying and transformative months leading up to his unprecedented debut, world tour and ultimate triumph over an impossible dream 48 years in the making.
