Vick Allen - "My Baby's Phone"

A beautiful ballad. Vick was talking to his wife on the phone and she tells him that she's in a meeting and will call him back.  She thought she had hung up the phone but she didn't disconnect!!  He hears a conversation that breaks his heart; the things she says to this other man.  So sad.

Bigg Robb - "Please Don't Judge Me"

For those who think southern soul is all about infidelity, here's a Bigg Robb song with a beautiful, heartfelt message.  He tells a couple of stories but there is one story about a woman who needed prayer and asked him for it.  He didn't hesitate, asked her what they needed to pray for, and took the time to pray for her.  (If you don't know, prayer is powerful!!!)  In his words to all of us, he doesn't want people to judge him because God isn't finished with him yet.  He may not be all that he wants to be but thanks to God he is better than what he used to be. He may not have it going on like this person or that person but he's learned to be thankful for what he has. That's a strong testament! Amen!

Kenne' Wayne - "Love Is Still Good"

Love is still good when you're stealing it.  Hmmm...

I love Kenne' Wayne - he's been singing for awhile now and is still making great music. Sounds like southern soul.

T J Hooker Taylor - "Just Because"

The legendary Johnnie Taylor had some kids who could sing!  His son, T. J.Hooker Taylor, did a beautiful remake of one of his dad's songs and it shows the deep love he had for his father.  This is a really good remake but I have to say that nothing compares to the original version by JT.
