Newly engaged singer/actress, Brandy gave us a lil whiff of some acapella vocals as she was getting prepped for her show at the Best Buy Theater.



Brandy had a sold out show. Her new album ‘Two Eleven‘ has gotten her some rave reviews as fans are saying she took it back to real R&B. Me personally, I have the album and yes, it is on repeat. She did come with it, this time around. I’m glad to see that Brandy is back and she proved that them vocals ain’t went no where when she gave us a taste of an impromptu acapella version of ‘His Eye Is On The Sparrow’ to warm up those vocals before the show.

Rocking all black er’thing Brandy paced back and forth while singing the song with those famous runs she’s well known for.

Here’s the clip:
