The Grammy award winning artist will perform songs from his seventh album “Looking 4 Myself” at the Hammersmith Apollo. The live stream will be directed by Hamish Hamilton and shown live around the world on his YouTube /Vevo channel as part “American Express Unstaged.”

”I am excited to introduce my new album ‘Looking 4 Myself’ with a worldwide performance in such an innovative way,” Ursh stated. “It’s very exciting to interact with my fans from a global stage through ‘American Express Unstaged’s live stream. Be there on June 11.”
