about the artist

Neo soul is a term coined by music industry entrepreneur Kedar Massenburg during the late 1990s to market and describe a style of music that emerged from soul and contemporary R&B. Heavily based in soul music, neo soul is distinguished by a less conventional sound than its contemporary R&B counterpart, with incorporated elements ranging from jazz, funk, and hip hop to pop, fusion, and African music. It has been noted by music writers for its classicist influences, conscious-driven lyrics, and strong female presence. Developed in the United States and United Kingdom during the 1980s and early 1990s as a soul "revival" movement, neo soul emerged into the mainstream with the commercial and critical breakthroughs of several neo soul artists during the 1990s, as it was marketed as an alternative to the producer-driven, digitally approached R&B of the time. Since its initial mainstream popularity and impact on the sound of contemporary R&B, it has been expanded and diversified musically through the works of both American and international artists.[5] According to Mark Anthony Neal, "neo-soul and its various incarnations has helped to redefine the boundaries and contours of black pop."

"Each Life Affects Another" We may not always realize That everything we do Affects not only our lives But touches others too. A single happy smile can always brighten up ther day for anyone who happens to be passing by your way, And a little bit of thoughtfulness That shows someone you care Creates a ray of sunshine For both of you to share... Yes every time you offer Someone a helping hand, Every time you show a friend You care and understand, Every time you have a kind And gentle word to give, You help someone find beauty In this precious life we live, For happiness brings happiness And loving ways bring love And giving is the treasure That contentment is made of. I understand You.....
