    PLEASE DON'T SLEEP on GOAPELE...

    "Soft white lights between us
    falling, forming into precious flowers chartreuse
    (beautiful and floating down on us)
    Sparkles flying towards us
    dancing all around us
    vanish in air..."

    "You and me
    revolving
    angel wings
    fluttering
    orange-gold
    sunsets bold
    star-filled nights
    sweet as fantasia.."

    The stuff is off the maddening chain, Yo.

    from her "Even Closer" album.
    Get it now.

    Lauryn Hill
    Les Nubiennes
    N'Dambi (Little Girl Lost Blues)
    Ledisi

    I'd be wrong if I didn't give the white girl her props:
    Esthero (check out her duet with John Forte on his album, "I, John"...just beautiful!)

    Ben Harper (Diamonds on the Inside album)
    Leroy Hutchins
    Curtis Mayfield (New World Order album)
    John Forte (not the BEST singing, but one of the better albums, "I, John": Get it now.)

    Happy listening, All!
