Leon Bridges performed “River” on this week’s “SNL” as his second song. For his first performance, Bridges sang his hit “Smooth Sailin.’” See the video below of Leon Bridges’ performance of “River” on “Saturday Night Live.”

As Gossip Cop noted earlier, Bridges, who has often been compared to the late Same Cooke, made his “Saturday Night Live” debut this week. And much like his first performance, Bridges mesmerized the studio audience and TV viewers with his soulful rendition of “River.” For the song, Bridges, dressed in a classic black tuxedo, played guitar as he was backed up by four singers.

“River” is off Bridges’ album “Coming Home,” which reached the number six spot on Billboard’s 200 chart. The critically acclaimed record also features the hits “Smooth Sailin,'” “Better Man,” and the single “Coming Home.”

Check out the video below of Leon Bridges’ performance of “River” on “SNL,” and tell Gossip Cop what you think.
