Who Knew?! T-Pain Doesn’t Need Auto-Tune [VIDEO]

(Thanks to Scott Fix for sending me the video)

T-Pain, 2nd Generation Auto-Tune Flag Waver & Advocate, has been dismissed as a One-Note Pop Music Booty Bounce Purveyor who would not be where he was without Auto-tune’s corrective qualities.  But he has shut down the naysayers with his Tiny Desk Concert Via NPR.   His voice soars as Soulfully AND Tunefully as any A-List R&B Crooner of Note WITHOUT the assistance of AUTO-TUNE, his signature sound.  Color me SHOCKED and Pleasantly INTRIGUED.  I’m Waiting for his Next Act or Album- Should be a Banger WITHOUT Auto-Tune, if this performance is any indication!
