Happy Birthday, José James

We were lucky to have jazz crooner José James as one of the musical guests at BAM's annual Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a lively celebration of the great man that also featured remarks by activist Angela Davis, a surprise appearance by "Brooklyn Bill" DeBlasio and his wife Chirlane, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams in rare form as MC, and others. It just so happens that James, who finished off his set with a lovely slow-rolling arrangement of Sam Cooke's anthem "Change Is Gonna Come," turns 36 today as well. Happy birthday, velvet-voiced one!
