A long term artist and lifetime lover of music, James Zaki Odon has been a part of the R&B, Pop and Jazz community. Recently this artist has been hard at work releasing his latest single, a cover of the song that he has loved for years. Zaki’s own style layered overtop of Alicia Keys’s “If I Ain’t Got You” is a beautiful and unique rendition of an already amazing song. It is truly a brilliant new version of this song.

Zaki has been in love with music for much of his life. Years ago he performed in a group called The Majestics, though it unfortunately broke up when two of its members, Zaki and another, were drafted into the Vietnam War. After the death of two of the members of this group, Zaki decided to go off on his own. Now as he pursues his solo career, Zaki is continuing to release his own original tracks and covers, such as “If I Ain’t Got You”.

“When I first heard ‘If I Ain’t Got You’, I just really liked the song. It took me a while to figure out and rearrange the song to fit me. Once I got it to where I liked it, I was pretty happy with how it all turned out.” Once Zaki perfected the song, he was ready to share it with the world. With a voice as rare and deep as his, Zaki has a true blessing of a voice. “I believe that I have a gift, and I want to share it with as many people as I can.”

Zaki takes a brilliant new spin on the already amazing song. He presents it in a light that highlights his voice and style even more impressively than the original version. “‘If I Ain’t Got You’ is a love song and I wanted to do it in a sultry way. I feel like my voice fits that style really well and definitely adds to the character of the song.” This song is truly beautiful and well put together. It puts an amazing spotlight on the unique texture of Zaki’s voice as well as the skills that he has put so much time and effort into perfecting. His work has undoubtedly paid off.

On top of his brilliant cover, Zaki is preparing to release even more music. One of his new singles, “Baby Brother” is an original track that pays tribute to the loss of two of Zaki’s nephews to gang violence. Not only does Zaki’s music have a gorgeous sound, it also includes intense and important messages.
