Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient and Former Isley Brother CHRIS JASPER, famous for his soulful renditions of popular hits such as James Taylor's "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight," Todd Rundgren's "Hello It's Me," and Seals & Croft's "Summer Breeze," has done it again with his soul-stirring arrangement of the Billy Preston classic "You Are So Beautiful" just released from his 14th solo album "Share With Me."
NEW YORK - Sept. 26, 2016 - PRLog -- CHRIS JASPER, the driving creative force behind the music of the Isley Brothers (1973-1983) and Isley-Jasper-Isley (1984-1987), just released his 14th solo album ... "Share With Me" ... And the single release of his soulful remake of "You Are So Beautiful" is getting instant recognition as one of the best renditions of this classic Billy Preston song originally made famous by Joe Cocker.
"[Chris Jasper's 'Share With Me'] album is heralded with the release of Chris' version of the lovely 'You Are So Beautiful'. You'll remember it in versions by Billy Preston and Joe Cocker but as you'd imagine, Chris quite transforms it, giving it a real ethereal quality. Though Chris is an award-winning songwriter, he is also an accomplished interpreter of others' songs ... and he makes 'You Are So Beautiful' all his own ..." – Bill Buckley, Soul and Jazz and Funk
