Goapele performs “Closer” on Russell Peters’ Christmas Special [Video]

Absent from the scene since 2005 and her Change It All LP, Goapele recently (and thankfully) returned earlier this year with her fourth studio album Break of Dawn (stream the album in full here.) Gracing Russell Peters stage for the comedians Christmas special, the Bay Area native returned to her roots with (an exquisite) performance of her well loved early single “Closer,” from her 2001 debut album of the same name. Check out the video below and someone please explain why she isn’t a house hold name yet.
