In this episode, Rahsaan Patterson talks about the first time he heard Lalah Hathaway on the radio singing “Heaven Knows”. The introspective conversation that ensues deals with the transformative power that great music can have and those flashpoint moments that we have when we are presented with great art for the first time.
BTW, if you don’t have Lalah Hathaway (or any titles from her discography) do your ears a favor and just click purchase…now. Enjoy!
