His new CD titled "Heartbreaker" takes the listener on a musical journey with tracks like "More Than My Heart Could Stand," Jimmy's delivery of this song is excellent, you can feel the emotion deep in your soul especially if you are in love or have that special someone.
"Heartbreaker" the title track has that southern R&B/Pop sound with a touch of gospel backup vocals, its plain beautiful, and when you listen to "Heaven Was Meant For Angels." WOWWWWW, that's all I can say.
GO AHEAD and listen to the sound clips and purchase this CD"Heartbreaker" you can't go wrong.
