Jennifer Nettles and Brandy Clark have been touring together for a little while now and, as is often the case with big tours, the two performers have been collaborating together during their shows. What’s unusual is the fact that Jennifer and Brandy officially released a video of the duet, “His Hands,” a dark tune about domestic abuse that originally appeared on Jennifer’s album That Girl.
“I was on the band bus and she called me and said, ‘Hey, I want you to sing with me in my show. There’s this duet on my record that I’d like you to do,’” recalls Brandy. “I said, ‘Well, the only problem is I don’t sing harmony. I can’t hear it.’ She said, ‘That’s OK. Can you sing the melody if I sing the harmony?’ I said, ‘Sure.’ And that’s just kind of how Jennifer is.”
Brandy is effusive in her praise for Jennifer, with whom she will be touring through early September. She also admires her tourmate’s ability to entertain and blend with another singer, as you’ll see in the “His Hands” video.
“I always say [Jennifer is] a generous performer,” adds Brandy. “She gives you so much and pulls so much more out of you than you think you have. I can see why she’s always worked well in collaborations.”
