Shifting the focus. You're probably thinking this is just another meaningless post with pretty shirtless boys meant to distract you from a boring day at work...well that may be true, but there's more to Brandon Hines and J'Sun Ash than their pretty faces. These pretty boys also have pretty amazing voices.

I was introduced to Hines (pictured left) by fellow blogger Gyant of gyantunplugged.com and Ash (pictured right) was brought to my attention by YouTube personality JackEBrown after he noticed Ash's striking resemblance to a man pictured in this photo at the recent Latex Ball.

Both are independent artists currently unsigned to major labels but have gained quite a following on YouTube, which has become ground zero next to American Idol for finding undiscovered talent.

Hines & Ash both cover Maxwell's hit single Pretty Wings on their respective channels and after hearing them sing it's hard to believe they're both unsigned.

Now I understand why Maxwell told the men in the audience of a recent concert "that his show was just a setup for them to get some a**". This song will make you wanna give away all of your goodies!

Get into both renditions below and let me know who you think sang it better.

I like them both but I'm going to pick the 1st one (Hines). I think the 2nd guy did well especially since he did it A cappella but i think he was doing too much with the runs.

I gotta go with Hines on this one although they both did a good job.The second guy has a better grip on his Falsetto but Hines' voice is just pure honey overall - he KILLED it!

I go with J'Sun. It seems so easy for him to get his notes out. I'm a big fan. Brandon, he just does too much.

I have to go with J'sun. When I heard him sing I was in shock... it was just extroadinary. I fell in love with his voice, plus he's not bad looking. Brandon did a very nice rendition and made it his own but J'sun's verison really got to me. Listen to his woman's work and other songs on You tube he is just great,it was beautiful. I am offically a fan.

That cat Brandon is the truth. The young dude has a alot of swagger and even challenged Maxwell. At the end of the song, he is so versatile that he was just playing and owning the song. Son is official.
