Urban Jazz Icon and American Idol's Last Woman Standing

Release iTunes Exclusive - Available Now!

Two-time Grammy Award nominee Boney James and current American Idol Top 3 finalist Syesha Mercado join forces to release the soulful, uptempo groove "Gonna Get It", available now, exclusively on iTunes.

Written by James and critically acclaimed R&B singer-songwriter Rahsaan Patterson, "Gonna Get It" pairs the multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer James with the last woman standing on American Idol - seductive songstress Syesha Mercado. Says James: "The first time I saw Syesha perform, I was incredibly impressed. ‘Gonna Get It' seemed like a perfect fit for her. I'm really proud of how well she's doing on American Idol."

Celebrated by Vibe Magazine for his "serious Grover Washington Jr.-style sexy R&B chops," James' Concord Records album Shine debuted at the #1 spot on the Contemporary Jazz chart, #6 on the R&B Chart and #44 on the Pop Chart. Special guests on Shine include jazz-guitar icon George Benson, R&B vocalists Dwele and Philip Bailey (of Earth, Wind & Fire), keyboard wizard George Duke, hip-hop/soul diva Faith Evans, alternative-pop singer Esthero and Sounds of Blackness powerhouse Ann Nesby.
