WATCH: New video of ‘Make My Move’

About 18 months ago, I did an interview — his first one! — with a promising, openly gay Oklahoma-based musician named Nehemiah Akbar, who was appearing in Dallas during Black Pride. He was talented then, and his talents have continued to grow. Next month, he has meetings in New York (he hopes to be a signed artist) but until then, he has this awesome new video out there. Catchy tune, hot visuals and he’s a nice guy. Imagine that.

WATCH: Nehemiah Akbar at The Brick

Last week, I ran a story about up-and-coming R&B artist Nehemiah Akbar, who did two sets this weekend at Dallas Southern Pride, performing two songs Friday and Saturday at the Brick. Here’s a video of his performance of the single “Make My Move.” Too bad the sound isn’t better.
