I felt this woman’s soul the moment I heard her debut Black Diamond back in 1999. Like Eryka Badu, Lauren Hill & Jill Scott, Angie Stone bears the blessings of a deep-river soul which shines through her mature lyricism & smoldering vocals – a true archetype of a soul star.
Stone was once asked what makes a real soul singer & she responded, “It’s not how well you sing, but what you sing about that counts, and if what you sing about relates to what you live out, if it’s real to you … ” Then you feel it. Sadly, many of our top-performing artists today are deaf to this golden rule. Take notes dammit!
Have a fantastic weekend!
