R.I.P. to the Legendary Bobby Womack

The Legendary singer, songwriter and musician passed away on June 27th, 2014. An active recording artist since the 1960's, Bobby Womack released his last album, the award-winning 'The Bravest Man in the Universe', in 2012.

Raphael Saadiq who was greatly influenced by Mr. Womack released a song dedicated to him and had this to say:

Bobby Womack is one of my musical soul International known Heroes, Never had to chance to work with him, or even talk to him, But I did get a chance to shake his hand and say hello, although he didn't know when I spoke to him, if felt like I knew him for a very long time, my parents would always play Bobby Womack Records in the house, and I continued to listen to them, So, much love to Bobby Womack and his Family, Here's Toast to Bobby, a song I finish last night after I heard the news,
Gonna Miss You…

Have Beautiful Transition,

RS

Concert Review:: Eric Roberson at The Xclusive Entertainment Center

Two time Grammy Nominated R&B artist Eric Roberson performed with his band before a mature eclectic crowd on Friday, January 10th at the Xclusive Lounge in Columbus, Ohio.  Eric Roberson (or Erro) is an artist, producer and songwriter from Rahway, New Jersey whose smooth and soulful sound can be likened to Peabo Bryson.  Hailed as the `King of Independent Music’, Eric has produced 7 albums during his long career, with two upcoming releases for 2014 (When Love Calls and B-Sides and Features & Heartaches).   Eric is known for his beautiful lyrics, falsetto ballads and dynamic performances, which transports die-hard fans into altered states of musical consciousness.
