One of 2012's breakout artists, London-born Michael Kiwanuka first turned heads opening for Adele on her 2011 tour with his soulful original songs and lissome vocal delivery. His album debut, "Home Again," released earlier this year, has deservedly invited comparison to classic late '60s and early '70s troubadours spanning soul, jazz and folk from Van Morrison to Bill Withers.

MSN is pleased to present this intimate performance recently taped at Union Chapel in Islington, London, for the MSN's UK Music team as part of its Exclusive series. We've also included a revealing interview conducted by UK editor James Hurley.
