Known for his hearty vocals, heartening lyrics and electric folk-soul fusion, Aloe Blacc is one of the most promising new stars of today. The rapper-turned-singer is a former member of the hip hop group Emanon (along with producer Exile), where he released several projects before dropping his first solo LP, Shine Through, in 2006. Since then, he's gained prominence with hits like "I Need a Dollar," "I'm the Man" and on DJ Avicii's "Wake Me Up." With a growing fan base and supporters worldwide, Blacc debuted his major label album, Lift Your Spirit, through Interscope in October 2013. (Photo: Chelsea Lauren/Getty Images for Clear Channel)
