It’s always nice to see a fresh face in the music industry. While there’s no denying that it’s human nature to judge a book by its cover, whenever this happens, you’ll often be left surprised. When you first look at singer Teddy Swims, you likely have no idea that one of his singing videos has over seven million views.
Rocking a full beard and face tattoos, he doesn’t look like your typical pop star. He’s quoted saying: “There are no categories, no stereotypes. Until we see every person as an individual, we will never reach unity.” We couldn’t agree more, Teddy.
Swims covers the hit song “I Can’t Make You Love Me” to Youtube without expecting to get the reaction that he did. The song is originally by Bonnie Raitt, and Teddy brings it to justice many years after its initial release.
As soon as Swims begins to sing, viewers are left with their jaws on the floor. His voice is unique, sultry, and smooth. Often compared to singing Sam Smith, Teddy shows that what you see isn’t always what you get.
