Explain My Heart
There were many good-looking fans and a good vibe going as soon as I walked into the I-Spy. Saul’s performance was a combination of spoken word, rock and hip hop. Although some people in the crowd weren’t digging the rock aspects of the show, others were, and it was obvious that Saul was being true to himself. There were parts with drum and bass beats that were very ill. Saul performed with a keyboard, cello, violin, drums and electric guitar. He played some of his new stuff and told people to donate blood. The whole audience felt the lyrical content when he rocked the mic, and he rocked the mic. Saul’s delivery was captivating.
