Up and coming singer Luke James rocked the stage at the 2012 ESSENCE Music Festival this past weekend. Dressed in a cut-off t-shirt, dark jeans and a bandana, the silky smooth vocalist set the Superlounge on fire with a performance of “I Want You” that had fans screaming and singing along.

James’ electric performance is reminiscent of a young Marvin Gaye. Watch now and tell us if you’re his newest fan.

The 2013 ESSENCE Music Festival is set for July 4-7 in New Orleans.
