    Black Male voices reaching the sky
    Sound so clear
    As when church bells ring
    Long live the tenors
    Brothers who sing

    Lovers of the old school
    Romance
    Slow dance
    Show stoppers and
    Panty droppers

    Brothers hitting the high notes
    Singing songs that make a woman understand

    yes

    So sweet and so strong that sound
    When it comes from the soul of a man

    beautiful tribute

    for all the smooth-throated crooners from back in the day:

    Eddie, Russell, Sam, Jackie, G.C., David..to name a few

    These brothers know no equal to this day, in terms of musicality, style, showmanship, and that drop dead raw appeal...:wink:

    thank you for this, BE
