The Review

“Forever Man” by The Real J Israel is a soulful and beautifully performed original track, a song of love and admiration, a love that is true, pure and un-possessive, but all so very real. The Real J Israel bears his soul, this track is only one of many fantastic pieces by this artist, but it is his latest and definitely his greatest. I look forward to more great music from The Real J Israel!
