White Artists Who "Sound" Black_Volume 2

Listening to 107.5 FM this morning while driving along I-285, this song came on. I think I was a senior in high school when I first heard it. I fantisized about my dream boyfriend -who never materialized- countless times while ingesting the lyrics. Until I watched the video, I never knew Babyface was featured on the song (even I'm slow sometimes). He gained a great deal of respect in the R&B game based solely on his talent. Back in the 90s, it was very rare to hear a white dude vocalize in such a soulful manner. Who is he? Ladies and gentlemen, Jon B.

Iloved Jon B! Not only was he talented, but I thought he had one of the smoothest & sexiest voices ever (back then anyway).

There was this song I loved, I'm not sure if the title is correct?, but I think it was called "ISN'T IT SCARY'. I loved the way he sang this song!!! He just romanced and mesmerised me with his voice.

And J, damn you were slow! (Miss S rolling in laughter).

On another note, I'm sorry that Romeo lost his bearings and never managed to find his way to your castle. But hopefully this time, and soon, he'll find his way and we'll forgive him for the past mistake.

Hugs & Kisses. I hope you have a fab week-end.

Keep smiling

S: I'm not thinking about "husband." If I didn't hook him, there's a sound reason. You have a wonderful weekend, too.

K: Like I said, I can be slow sometimes. I still think it's a great song.

J,I WAS JUST KIDDING AROUND.

I know you were, S. Seriously, I'm not thinking about him. I hope he's well and happy.

Thanks, S. I'll have a real husband one day. Until then....
