Anthony Hamilton, the Grammy-winning singer and songwriter from Charlotte, has spent his career working a fertile patch of rhythm and blues.
Sometimes he makes old-school records that might remind you of Al Green or Bill Withers; other times he pairs his voice with hip-hop beats.
But this summer of death and protest on the streets has made him rethink his sound once again – and it has made him wonder about the best way to talk about it to his six sons.
