My Review of The Bleeding Edge

My review of 

The Bleeding Edge

by The Revelations featuring Tre Williams

I first saw Tre Williams as an opening act for Calvin Richardson. I had no idea who he was or what he sang, so imagine my surprise when he walked out onto the stage and took the microphone. His voice coupled with the music of The Revelations was not only a pleasant surprise but a transforming moment. Actually, at that point, I could have not heard Calvin Richardson and would have not even have cared (I did stay and Calvin was excellent as well). So the first chance I got, I ran out and bought The Bleeding Edge. Let me tell you, it is the BOMB from beginning to end. It's one of those CDs you can just let play in its entirety without skipping a single song. Favs are "I Don't Want to Know", a cover of "Let's Straighten it Out" and "How Do I Tell Him". But truly, every song on the CD is great. If you are a lover of Old School Soul or Blues, you will love this CD. Don't sleep on The Revelations feat. Tre Williams.

Seducing Mr. Perfect

So, my lovely fifteen-year-old daughter, who's obsessed with Asian culture, convinced me to watch a Korean Romantic Comedy (with English subtitles), and I really enjoyed it. The story was cute, and hopeless romantics like me will love watching it. Plus, the star, Daniel Henney, is not bad on the eyes, either :) 
Check the movie out on YouTube:

1 Thing

Y'all I love, love , love this video and this song! But I especially love the video. Pay close attention to the scenes with the percussionists and even closer attention to the bongo players in the back. Then you will see why I love this video so much. :)
Well, that's my random post for today. Later!!

My review of My Name is Butterfly by Bernice McFadden

I love Ms. McFadden's work, so I thought I'd share my review of her novel, My Name is Butterfly. Check it out.

This story was so vividly told that I could feel the emotions of the characters. I could see Ghana surrounding me, smell its smells and hear the noises of both the city and the shrine. This was a gripping tale that took hold of me from the first sentence and would not let me go until I was finished reading. I will carry this story with me for the rest of my life--the good, the bad, and the triumph. Ms. McFadden is truly a master storyteller and I thank her for telling a story that needed to be told.

Thanks for visiting my blog!!
