That is horrible! Beautiful voice, soul and man. I hope they catch the creeps. I have seen this man 4 times and have a picture of him and I at one of his concerts. He couldn't hurt anyone so it's bs that his happened. I hope he hires a body guard after this. Some people suck!

You know the attackers had to be black. But no mention of that. What was the motivation? He is white. Whites are second class citizens vulnerable to racial attacks.

I have started to study martial arts to handle situations like this. Women and everyone should study some form of martial art.

It is simply disgusting that people would do this to another human being. I feel sorry for him and I hope that he recovers quickly, both physically and emotionally. And I hope they find those 3 ******** and charge them with serious crimes.

Maybe he was beaten for being white. Of course, no one believes or cares that there are hate crimes against white people so it never makes the news....
