Mylah singing Honesty
Damn this Sista can Sing, I’ll update you more on her in time, I’m getting used to posting every day. I want to turn yall on to the hottest voices and funkiest artist out there. If you check out the award shows every year it’s the same folks, every damn year. I know Beyonce and Rihanna are good, but I believe there are lot more folks out there with mad talent, that we need to discover.
Here is Mylah 🙂
Calvin Richardson “Woman’s Got To Have It”
I stumbled across this version of Bobby Womack “Woman’s Got To Have It” a few years ago and loved it. Bobby Womack is a very hard singer to imitate and Calvin Richardson does a great job of reproducing the spirit of the song. I’ll post more Calvin Richardson in the near future so we can see what this Kat is all about. 🙂
R.I.P. Jimmy Ruffin Motown Legend Dead At 78
Jimmy Ruffin, the crooner who was a staple in Motown for decades, has passed away at the age of 78.
Ruffin reached legendary Motown status in 1966 with his hit “What Becomes of the Brokenhearted” and “I’ve Passed This Way Before” both reaching #7 and #17 respectively on the US charts in 1967. In 1980 he scored again with “Hold On To My Love” which reached #10 on the US Charts.
Jimmy was the older brother of Motown Legend and Lead singer of the Temptation, David Ruffin.
Ruffin’s 2 kids — Philicia and Jimmy Lee — confirmed that he passed Monday at his home in Las Vegas.
Bobby Womack – March 4, 1944 – June 27, 2014
Bobby Womack was one of the greatest to ever do it. When he went to glory on June 27, 2014, I was truly a sad camper. Womacks signature songs, That’s The Way I Feel About Cha”, “If You Think You’re Lonely Now”, “Harry Hippie” and “Across 110th Street” were the anthems of my teen age and early adult years. Back then singers were really singers, you could feel the power of their voice in every note and phrase.
Bobby Womack you will always be remembered and will live forever in song.
Pharrell Williams – Happy
I’m not late, I just love this song. Pharrell is the best out there doing it right now. I have nothing but love and respect for this brother.
Mothership Connection – Parliament 1975
I’m here to tell you that the Mothership Connection album was one of the greatest albums out during my College years. Every time I hear it all I can remember is the fine ass girls, the good times and getting drunk and telling lies with my buddies. Here are a few of the hot tracks I really liked. 🙂
Jonas Rendbo Soulful dude out of Denmark
This is my second time starting my Soul Blog. On my first go round I ran into a lot of artist with talent. MySpace was really big back then for artist. One of the most talented guys I ran into with a super soulful sound was Jonas Rendbo, back then he went by the name Jonas. Below is one his old videos. I’ll come back to this post and add a few more tomorrow, but this song “Melting into you” is sure enough Bad.
It’s from his album Sweet Dreams Guaranteed
