“This win for me is not only exciting, but reassuring,” James told iHeartRadio before the event. “My album How I Like It is by far the most personal thing I have ever put out into the world, and I can’t begin to tell you the anxiety and fear that comes along with that. What if people don’t like it? How are people going to judge me for it? Hell, what’s going to happen next?”

“But seeing the reactions thus far, and especially winning the Macy’s iHeartRadio Rising Star contest with it definitely puts some of those concerns aside,” James added. “I’m more excited than I’ve ever been to keep going and cannot wait to play the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Festival in Vegas!”

James kicked off the weekend with epic performance that showed off his vocals, dance moves, and piano skills.
