Miki Howard

No, I’m a little past 1986 today for our #GetGrown entry. I’m in a little bit of an ’89 – ’90 feel today. Decent years for me I’d say – not perfect, not tragic, but definitely decent and certainly some good times and the album that today’s track is culled from was certainly a big part of the soundtrack of that era for me. Miki Howard definitely did the whole thing on this record and “If You Still Love Her” is one of my favorites from the set for its realness not only in lyrical contect but emotive vocal delivery.

Looking forward to checking out Ms. Howard’s upcoming biopic on TV One tomorrow night.
