#SoulfulSaturday - "Baby, Hold On To Me" Eddie and Gerald Levert

#SoulfulSaturday Celebrates D-A-D ;-)

#SoulfulSaturday represents for Dear Ol' Dad this week. Coincidentally, as we continue to celebrate Black Music Month all in the same accord, it would only be right that we found a record that'll be perfectly suited for the occasion. Today, we spread love to all the Proud Papa's.

Here's a track #Growns that we highly admire. This classic Father & Son duet gained international success by reaching to No.1 on Billboard's Pop and R&B charts in 1991. Baby, Hold On To Me was first featured on Gerald Levert's album Private Line, obtaining legendary status as the smoothest ballad ever to be recorded by A Father and Son. Eddie Levert was proud father of our late R&B crooner Gerald Levert. This performance simplifies the meaning of a dynamic duet.

Happy Father's Day Family.

 


#SoulfulSaturday - "Sadie" : Mother's Day Edition

#SoulfulSaturday ~ We're Thankful for MaMa!

It's that time of year again #Growns, and #SoulfulSaturday is paying homage. One thing's for sure around these parts, we cherish all Mothers. It's only right that we spread love, not just on this day, but daily. Showing appreciation, gratitude, and specifically compassion. No matter how near or how far, show your love and be grateful for Mama. A special shout out goes to mine ;) .

In April of 1975, The Mighty Spinners released the MFSB instrumentalized track "Sadie" highlighting the gestures and sacrifices of a Mother's love. Rising to No. 7 on the U.S. R&B singles chart, "Sadie" became a world-renowned, dedicated classic tune for Mama. Philippe Wynne's lead vocals on the track, gives it the appropriate amount of serenade that's needed to get the job done. This week we celebrate all Mothers, and even our mother figures. We recognize ya' and don't ya' know we love you!

Watch The Spinners sang Fam!
