Stephanie Mills (Heartbeat props)

Stephanie Mills is one of the best singer ever! I thought I would stop, and give her some Heartbeat Props. Heartbeat props are when you give someone the respect the deserve when they still have a heartbeat. Too often we give props when the person dies. Stephanie starred on Broadway as Dorothy in the Wiz. She came out with several hit R and B Albums. When sings a song the listener can feel it. I think she is one of the most underrated singers out there. I could be wrong,but I've never seen a BET special where they honored this woman.

Black Sheep (once you go black..) Gin Wigmore

Heard this song on an episode of a TV show I was watching. I liked the hook. I need to find out more about artist.

Heartbreak and Great CDs

There is a link between heartbreak and the creation of great music. I don't know what the link is exactly,but some artists create there best work after or during heartbreak. Mary J. Blige's My Life, was created when she was in the middle of the drama with K-Ci. A recent example is Adele's work on 21. Oh Pink's last CD was great when she and her husband were not together. I don't wish heartbreak on anyone,but it does seem to be a fire starter when it comes to creating some great work. Have you ever listened to any track from Marvin Gaye's Here My Dear cd? If not, go right now and buy it. Eric Benet's CD when him and Halle broke up called Hurricane was one his best CDs. It was raw and honest. The first Maroon 5 CD Songs about Jane was awesome. This was before they did that "Moves Like Jagger" crap
