Enjoy her classic song,”Portugese Love.”
I’ve been feeling the song, “All I Want is You” all summer. It is great that it is finally getting some shine. New artist Miguel performed the song Tuesday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live. He kind of reminded me of a young Prince with his stage performance. The half-Black, half-Mexican singer brought some theatrics. Gotta love it.
Check out his performance…
