It was brought to my attention by another retired close-friend & colleague regarding a young singer named LIV WARFIELD.
After tuning in to The Arsenio Hall late night show at 11:00pm March 6, 2014 and viewing her YouTube videos, I found her showcased performance on The Arsenio Hall show was electrifying with an exceptional background band consisting with a brass section of trumpets, trombones, and a full saxophone section featuring two baritone saxes plus a driving rhythm section named the New Power Generation Hornz and her band The Black Birds.
While Prince was appearing as a guest on the show, he brought a special artist with him, Liv Warfield.
Her rendition of “Soul Lifted” was a special moment for the audience to view her exciting soulful performance.
In addition, I definitely would like to acknowledge the featured Tenor Sax man – (Keith Anderson) whose name was also bought to my attention; playing the instrumental introduction to her voice. His big sound along with his stage presence and soulful approach to the saxophone style is reminiscent of sharing the bandstand with many musician friends & vocalists during my career as a saxophonist.
It is my pleasure to share this link for your enjoyment.
