Looks like the next voices of R&B are joining together to form a supergroup — The Jackets. So who’s in this supergroup? It’s Luke James, Bridget Kelly, Melanie Fiona and Stacy Barthe. Singersroom also reports Wynter Gordon, Olamide Faison and Leah Labelle are also a part of the movement.
There’s no word on if this is an official group a la TGT (Tank, Ginuwine and Tyrese’s group) or what. Still, The Jackets are making their performance debut at Ro James‘ performance on November 4 at New York City’s Highline Ballroom.
Ro is Luke James’ little brother, who recently released a three-part EP series Coke, Jack, & Cadillacs, will also perform. He previously called The Jackets, of which he’s a member, ” a crew of dope singers that move like rappers.
I’m looking forward to what The Jackets come up with!
