This weekend the internets were ablaze when a new live performance video from our beloved Maxwell spread from blog to blog like a wildfire. Interestingly enough, this video was posted on YouTube two weeks ago, but people just recently discovered it. And thank goodness they did because this performance needed to be seen by more than those who were in attendance at the 2008 HollyRod Foundation DesignCare Benefit on July 19th. Backed by the Rickey Minor Band with Sy Smith on background vocals, Maxwell sung a breathtaking version of "This Woman's Work" in front of an audience that included Vanessa Williams, honoree Cedric the Entertainer, Regina King and founder Holly Robinson-Peete who can be seen having a moment toward the end of the clip. Can you blame her? Watch the video below and you'll probably need a few minutes to collect yourself afterwards, too.
