Music that’s moved me to a new level of appreciating how far I could take it: D’Angelo’s song, “”Untitled (How does it feel) was a huge turning point…..other artists that were breaking some boundaries….India.Arie, Eryka Badu, I’ve been a big fan of Amel Larrieux’s for years….Sade, Maxwell, Eric Benet, Jill Scott, Tamia, etc……artists that are reaching to the stratosphere today: Corrine Baily Rae, my man, Robin Thicke, and Sia……artists that sing to their beat of their own drum: Shelby Lynne, Annie Lennox and Meshell ndegeocello… I wish I could have heard Miss Dinah Washington sing in my day, but thank God her recordings are still as fresh as they day she sung them…
