Geo – You know.
Anybody that knows me knows Yolanda Adams is my celebrity crush, my “church gurl” personified by her talent, spirit, and God-given beauty.
Years ago I was “outcheah” “sinnin” and transgressing worse than Fred Sanford and Yolanda’s music was the gravity that snapped me back to reality.
“A Godsend – that’s who”.
She’s on my bucket list of ladies to share an evening with simply because- they’re inspiring and uplifting. Continue reading “Happy Sunday! Yolanda Adams – Victory!”
The state of Maryland introduced me to Seal. Maryland here’s to you.
The ’70’s funk and soul icon Sly Stone, front man of Sly and the Family Stone, has called a van home for years after falling out of the entertainment limelight along with being cheated out of millions of dollars for his music.
Being a huge fan of Sly and the family I for one was disheartened to hear the legendary guitarist and all around musician had hit the skids so hard.
I have followed his fall from grace and the defection of women, friends, fans, and business partners. Lose the money lose the phoneys, lose the trophies.
Sly found this out when he dropped hard from a lofty mansion status to the gutters of poverty and damned near homelessness.
After years out of the limelight and living on the fringes of society, Sly Stone may have a blessing coming that is long overdue. Read about it here. ->Jury Awards Sly Stone 5 Million Dollars in Unpaid Royalties — The GeoGee Experience Magazine — Medium
“Maybe you’ve never been in love like I’ve been in love.” -Lenny Williams
My good friend and the front lady over at the excellent blog seekthebestblog , Lady G, does a weekly Thursday post entitled My Jams (insert year) where she revisits hot and relevant R&B hits from years past. Each individual post is a specifically yearly experience that is an enriching read led off by one of her personal stories that are awesome mini stories within themselves. The woman can write!
Her “My Jams” editions also send me digging in the album crates of yesteryear. Since I’ve been rolling with “My Jams” I’ve rediscovered countless old school tunes and relived some wonderful times. Thanks Gwin for your MJs.
Here is the latest “dusty” album in the crate jewel I’ve come across.
Lenny Williams and the ultimate “man baring his naked feelings ” song.
“Because I Love You”.
Fellas if this jam doesn’t stop her from hanging up on you or get a response to your text, or get her to open the door – it’s over- it’s over bro.
Back in the day this song had folks making up that had never broke up. Enjoy!
