Bobbi Kristina Brown Sings ....

Image
She is the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. Her name is Bobbie Kristina. I know a lot of people will compare her to her mom, her grandmother, Cissy Houston, and her auntie Dionne Warwick.  In a recent video, Bobbi Kristina sings, "Nevermind I'll Find Someone Like You."  I must say as I watched it I could her a unique style in her voice that is much different than her parents.  I hope she goes far. I got to give her credit, she has an awesome voice. Check it out.

Remembering Aaliyah

Image
Aaliyah Dana Haughton left us at the tender age of 22.  Words cannot describe her talent and gifting.  I remember first watching her on the video to "Back and Forth,"  and her voice captivated me.  In high school I fell in love with the hit "Care 4 U."  I was in a my first real relationship and that was one of the many songs on the mixtape that I made for one for our dates.  Then her video and track "Rock the Boat"  was part of my dance repertoire.  I remember doing some of her choreography especially to "Are you that Somebody."  One thing that I liked is that Aaliyah did not scream, yell, get over sexual, nor did she sell out to the industry. She had such a smooth, sweet, silky voice that cannot be compared with other vocalist.  As a tribute to Aaliyah here are some musical tributes of some of my favorite songs from her legacy.






RIP Nick Ashford

It is with sadness that I write to you. The Music world has lost another soldier. Nick Ashford, died at the age of 70 due to throat cancer in New York.  Many of you may know him as half of the duo Ashford and Simpson.  They wrote some of the greatest songs under the Motown label. Ashford and his wife, Valerie Simpson were known for writing the hits "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," "You're All I Need to Get to Get By," "Solid," "I Found a Cure." The music is timeless.  He is survived by His wife and his two daughters.
