Last month, we posted the debut single by Epic Records latest emerging R&B artist, Bernard Flowers.
The record, titled “This Feeling,” is a cool, kind of safe mid-tempo R&B ballad. However, Flowers upbringing in Memphis, Tenn. was far from safe, and now he lets us into his world, and his life with a mini-doc, called ‘The Escape.’
Flowers, 23, introduces himself to viewers in the two-part documentary short, which was shot at his Memphis home with his friends and family by his side.
“It’s only right that I bring y’all back to the city that I got all my game from,” he says of the doc. “I knew I wanted to be an entertainer from day one.” Though he followed basketball at first, and then a short-lived rap group, Flowers moved to Atlanta not long after graduating high school and became a full-fledged singer in whatever studio he could find.
“God gives things to you for a reason,” Flowers says. “It’d be disrespectful to disregard the fact that I can sing. It’s a gift.”
If you let Bernard tell it, music has been his great escape, and he’s poised to make a world that’s all his own. Get to know him more below…
