George Ezra in the Red Bull Studios London

Watch the 19-year-old artist perform his songs 'Budapest' and 'Did You Hear The Rain.'

Some things on the planet are just hard to come to grips with, like the continued success of Charlie Sheen's career and tetherball. George Ezra's singing voice is another mystery -- a wonderful, mellifluous mystery. Ezra has the rich, melancholic baritone of someone who's seen it all and has somehow kept all the brutal hardship locked in his soul until it has perfectly arranged itself into song. But he's only 19.

At the top of the year, the British singer-songwriter was a finalist for the BBC Radio 1 Sound of 2014 competition, coming in fifth. Recently, he was in the Red Bull Studios London to perform his songs 'Budapest' and 'Did You Hear The Rain?' for the latest episode of 'Launched,' the series hosted by Annie Mac. Up-and-coming British rockers Amber Run were also featured in the episode, which you can watch in its entirety in the player above.
