Earlier this evening Maxwell made his first televised performance of original music in nearly seven years. A few weeks after hitting us with his beautiful new ballad Lake By The Ocean, Maxwell gives us the live version on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Dressed in all white, Maxwell (accompanied by a live band) brings that raw emotion right to your living room with this performance.
