America’s Got Talent isn’t the only home she’s had the chance to show off those marvelous gifts of hers. Courtney’s quite active on social media and YouTube where we were able to locate this little gem of a video.
Listen to Courtney Hadwin sing “I Got You (I Feel Good)” by James Brown. As you probably know, Brown wrote this song himself. It was originally recorded and released as a single in 1964 and it became his highest-charting song, arguably his most popular recording.
“I Got You (I Feel Good)” is a twelve-bar blues with a brass-heavy instrumental composition similar to Brown’s previous hit, “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag”. It also highlights the same accent “on the one” (i.e. the first beat of the measure) that characterizes Brown’s unique style. The lyrics have Brown exclaiming how good he feels (“nice, like sugar and spice”) now that he is with his true love. James Brown would indeed love Courtney’s performance.
