Artist Spotlight: Yusuf Islam

Cat Stevens was already a household name in the 1970s with hits like “Wild World“, “First Cut is the Deepest” and “Morning Has Broken” when he decided to take a break from music – 27 years to be precise – to pursue spiritual truth. After converting to Islam and changing his real name (Steven Demetre Georgiou) to Yusuf Islam, he continued churning out songs and writing new material for other artists, culminating in his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.

Clearly a man of many talents, we love Yusuf Islam for his performance of “How Can I Tell You”, a folk ballad about how the strongest emotions are often the most difficult to express.
