GFM had the wonderful opportunity of not just covering Eric Roberson’s “Mister Nice Guy” tour in Atlanta but a bit of the backstage action as well. From the warm up vocals backstage, pairing the perfect suit for sartorial elegance and giving the final note of the night, we were there for it all. The show was full of major highlights like the vocal and physical acrobatic performance of the Atlanta songstress, Algebra Blessett along with special surprise appearances by Anthony David and Rhonda Thomas. Also a big shout out for Ms. Avery Sunshine and V-103 radio personality Terry Bello for being in the house as well. Check out some of our pictorial footage before and during the show.Read more

Rhonda Thomas-Do Your Thing

As if the universe planned it... after yesterday's mini-tribute to Isaac Hayes this great new music from Rhonda Thomas hits the inbox. A touching tribute to her mentor, Rhonda explains the story behind the recording:

"Wow! Where do I start? I was already familiar with this song coming up in the soul era. My dad loved Isaac Hayes. So when I got the opportunity to sing background for him, my friend and bass player Kurt Mitchell suggested that I ask Isaac to sing the song with him as a duet. The rest is history. I had the opportunity to sing with Isaac Hayes for 11 years and was a featured vocalist on the song with him. I knew I wanted his presence on my CD, so what better way to pay homage to him. I wanted this song to honor Isaac’s original music but I wanted to update it just a little. I love the direction we went with this. My favorite line is “I do my thang I work my thang-thang sing my thang-thang. Thank you Isaac ‘cause you helped me do my thang-thang”. Peaceful Blessings to You Isaac!!"
