    I just hope that they don’t “Reuben Studdard” him, meaning type cast him so much into one thing that he can’t really breakout of it. He’s talented and shouldn’t be pigeon holed into one sound. Glad he sung a Rihanna song and not a Luther song. Could definitely see him singing other Sia written songs.
