Simone De - "A Love To Call Mine"
One of my favorite Saturday morning southern soul stations is WDLT in Mobile (http://www.983wdlt.com/). The music is always fantastic. One artist frequently played is Simone De. He has an awesome background and I am pleasantly surprised - and impressed - by this man. He is a resident of Mobile, married with children, teaches secondary school students, plays organ for church, and has an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts, a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration, and a Master's Degree in Special Education. Boy, do I love an educated brother! He has worked in city government as the assistant public relations person for the mayor and the executive assistant to the city council and even ran for the state Senate in 2010. Wow, just shows you the kind of talent our southern soul artists have!
Not only does Simone De have a unique voice, the man is gorgeous! "A Love To Call Mine" is a story about a man who took his woman for granted. She got tired of how he treated her and left him a "Dear John" letter before she took off - here's the chorus:
I want a love I can call mine come rain or shine and still be mine
I want a love that's here to stay, won't fade away with the light of day
