Aaron Neville On 'Song Travels'
Originally published on Fri October 4, 2013 12:55 pm
Aaron Neville has been a radio mainstay for more than five decades. Coming from a musical family in New Orleans, he got his start singing with The Neville Brothers and had his first No. 1 R&B hit in 1966 with "Tell It Like It Is."
Neville moves easily through musical genres — including pop, country, soul, R&B and doo-wop — and has earned three Grammy Awards for his duets with Linda Ronstadt and Trisha Yearwood. His album I Know I've Been Changed served as a message of hope to the world after Hurricane Katrina struck his hometown.
Neville's latest album, My True Story, recaptures the iconic sounds of the doo-wop era. On this episode of Song Travels, he blends his silky-smooth voice with the piano and vocals of host Michael Feinstein, as they perform renditions of "This Magic Moment" and "Smile."
