Sound Tracks: Music Without Borders

 
  

Charles Bradley Sings "Heartaches and Pain"

Sometimes a song is more than a song. It can be a confession, a cry from the heart, a catharsis. When Charles Bradley sings "Heartaches and Pain" on stage, it's a classic, old school, soul music performance. There's even a showy James Brown touch, with Bradley carrying the microphone stand on his shoulder as if it were his cross to bear. And hey, we all have our burdens, right?
