Michael McDonald - saw him last year. The man is brilliant in concert. You have to really be comfortable with where you are in the industry to allow one of your back-up singers to shine - and sing the show's closing song. The sistah turned the house out!

I've nothin' but respect for that brotha - Oh he's a brotha...he just doesnt know it! LOL
Shut up - Anita Baker in Chapter 8 (" I Just Wanna Be Your Girl") Whew! my sophomore year all over again!

I'm losing it! My all time favorite - SMOKEY ROBINSON - The Miracles, Smokie Robinson & The Miracles
