Who is Richgirl?

Every generation has it's boy band or female ensemble group.  From The Supremes to Destiny's Child, we have loved and grown with our favorite girl group; we've even watched a house burn down, a solo star be born and girls come and go in the same group.  

But we can always use a great girl group who has a fire and tenacity that is spunky, fun and powerful.  Women do rule the world.  And if any female group is worth taking the crown of En Vogue and TLC while remaining sophisticated ladies, it's RICHGIRL.  

Their harmonies and sheer vocal talent is amazing.  They can sing, no sang live and each girl is a good soloist. This girl's really know how to sing.

RICHGIRL is currently touring in Europe. I need this group to make it here next.  I love them and can't wait for their success.

Florence and the Machine

I really want to like this band but their performance on SNL makes it real hard.

It's like they were out of tune, like she couldn't hear the choir in the background.  She was so pitchy.  This normal when she performs.

It would be crazy not to mention that this band is coming to the annual Memphis in May concert weekend. I guess i should give them another try.

But I am a little nervous after that SNL performance.  I will say Florence has a knack for singing high notes and has an incredible range.  I just wonder if it's more studio magic.

Missing Whitney Houston

After watching the funeral and hearing all the coverage on the news, I am still trying to understand this loss.  Whitney Houston had the voice of an angel.

I mean, let's face it it is always okay to say you were a Whitney Houston fan.  And when you heard her sing it was hard to pretend it wasn't cool or great.

Great love songs and dance tracks will live on in our hearts.

I think it you are looking for any singing tips, you have to start with Whitney as the first lesson.

KARMIN- if you hadn't heard, let me be the first to introduce you.

Karmin is that unique band that you will be recalling when you heard them first. And man does this chic have some pipes.

I mean I if you missed the incredible SNL performance this weekend, watch and learn how to debut.  They killed it.

What a performance.  Can anyone say Robyn?

They really made a stamp on this one.

Solange, more than a sista!!!


Can she be the most beautiful girl in the world

The many faces of a soul sista, Solange

The truth is I have loved Solange since her first song, Feelin' You.  I think she is a talent that is very underrated.  I am still jamming her latest CD- Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams.

Solange is more a soprano than her ultra famous sibling Beyonce.  And definitely a better writer and artist.  Beyonce is a great entertainer performer and has many talents; Beyonce appeals to the masses more.  

Solange is no less a talent but has a more narrow appeal.  As a soprano and live singer, you realize she has the ability to sing high notes that are harder for her sister. Listen to T.O.N.Y. on the last album.

In all actuality, both singers can hit the high notes but Solange voice is smoother on the high notes.  She is an example of how to sing high notes because her voice is truly soft and sweet and melodious. 

Solange is more than just a sister to Beyonce, she is a writer, director, DJ, performer and actress.  I for one can't wait to see her deliver more music and give us her beautiful voice.

Right now, Solange has been DJ to the stars all over the world.  But I can't wait til she sits back in the studio and make more magic.

Where is the BOSS? That's Ms. ROSS!!!

the definitive Ms. Ross

the beautiful icon
 Known for changing gowns throughout a show.  Ms. Ross is the Boss.

Diana Has not always been the best singer.  But she is a great performer.  In fact, she doesn't need singing tips, she just turns the microphone to the audience to sing if she forgets a word or it's too high of a high note for older voice.

 I got to see her about 2 years ago in a Live series.  She blew the crowd away with her timeless songs and extravagant looks,  

The question is will she or won't she have another album or tour.  Ross has accomplished so much that she doesn't have to do another thing but i can hope.

I look forward to the next Diana experience whatever might come to us.  
I 've always been a big fan.

Love After War- Robin Thicke

I was so excited when I got this CD that I hadn't really listened to it when I made my first blog about Robin Thicke.  But if you haven't heard Love After War, you are missing out on something very special.

When Robin sings it's as if he is singing to you or about you.  It's like you get a special listen to a love letter.  It goes without saying any guy wanting to impress his lady should just pick a song and and dedicate it to his lady.   You will get major points, I promise.

If I were giving singing tips, I would suggest listen to Robin Thicke to find out where soul starts and ends.  He sings about what he knows so it is so authentic.

I bet he he gave singing tips, it would to start with this album. It's 20 songs worth every cent.
