And last but most certainly not least, one of the best performances from NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts is from T-Pain. Most people associate T-Pain's artistry with Auto-Tune, and the singer even jokes about this, claiming, "I know everyone is wondering where the Auto-Tune is gonna come from; it's OK, I've got it in my pocket." He stuns the nation when he belts out the most gorgeous vocals that are far from Auto-Tuned.
It feels as though T-Pain is not singing through his mouth but rather singing through his soul. The passion here is tear-inducing, and I am unashamed to say I had to bring out the tissue box for this performance. This video deserves all the praise it can get, and although it has over 16 million views, it still feels as though this show deserves more attention. This is true talent right here, and I hope T-Pain continues to release more of this awe-inspiring music. His set list includes his hits "Buy U a Drink (Shawty Snappin')," "Up Down (Do This All Day)," and "Drankin' Patna."
