Clarence Bekker is so very talented he has the most amazing voice I have ever heard. I could not wait to get the CD when it came out but I was a little disappointed when I received it. My disappointment had nothing to do with Clarence it was all about the song selections that they had him do. In my opinion they went too far back in time and only two of the songs were really popular when they were out. In my opinion instead of having him do Hold ON by Sam and Dave they should have done When Something is Wrong with my Baby by them. I know with his voice Clarence would have killed that song and I mean that in a good way. I will say this if Clarence has the right songs not one of the guys that are topping the charts today could come close to his talent. They can't touch him.

I agree with those who wish they had chosen better songs for this CD. But google Clarence Bekker and Henriette van Dyke, and watch him sing Stand by Me with her. He is outstanding. Great voice, great audience rapport, and great ability to respond to the person he is singing with, and adapt to them, and make a great result. I also like his performance of Stand by Me on Playing For Change, the one that starts with Robert Ridley. I wish there were more videos of him available, I think he is an under-promoted singer.

Saw him on Songs Around the World from Playing for Change and LOVED his voice and delivery. Reminds me of Otis Redding and love his covers of some great old songs. When you hear someone sing like Clarence it makes you sad he's not more successful and others who CAN'T EVEN SING are hugely popular.

I love this mans voice. Probably within 4 seconds of hearing/watching him on the Stand By Me video, I knew he had real star power.
I 'worship' at the alter of his voice. Like Ray Charles or Otis Redding, he kind of is his own genre, in a manner of speaking.I agree that the songs that were chosen were not the best vehicles for him. I also really missed watching him sing. Sorry Reggie McBride and Marc Johnson, but I would have tried him on songs like "For Your Precious Love ( pre- Otis Redding version), Lets' Stay Together, These Arms of Mine, I've Been Loving You Too Long, interspersed with Kingston Town, Let's Get It On, Gonna Walk and Don't Look Back , Can't Help Falling In l Love With You ( UB 40), maybe Red Red Wine... or songs of they type I mentioned... then I would have let him run with them. He knows what to do...

This guy has the best voice. I can't believe we don't here more of him. I would definitely recommend this CD!

I love the rich sound of Clarence Bekker's voice. I first heard him in Playing for Change. I must admit that the songs in this album are not what I would have picked for him, but I still like it. Hopefully he will come out with another album that will showcase his voice as it was in Playing for Change. Thanks for sharing your beautiful voice with the world.

I heard Clarence Milton Bekker on Playing for Change, loved his voice and thus ordered the CD. It is quite revealing of a very talented young artist.

I heard this young artist sing on the album "Playing for Change" as well as seeing him on the DVD. He was so good that I wanted to hear more of his singing. I purchased "Old Soul" and was really pleased with the album. He has a very warm and mellow voice. Please give him a try.

I first became aware of Clarence Milton Bekker on the Playing For Change video of Stand by Me. I also watched all the other videos and songs he has on you tube. But I had to have the cd so I could play it in the car, and put it on my mp3 playlist. His voice is tremendous, reminiscent of the r and b singers of the 1950's and '60's. I highly recommend this cd, and any of his work.
