What's old is new again... seems like everything comes back around. Whatchu know 'bout Robocop?
Sidenote: I auditioned for a role in this movie, it was shot here. I didn't get it... obvi. Not mad at that, the release date is Feb 2014 (and we all know what that means).
Some people don't know that Take 6 is the best acapella group of all time. In this performance, they got a little help from some instruments (David Foster on the keys), but you can still hear the skill and this is one of their most beautiful songs. Enjoy:
First, this was an amazing time for black music. There was Motown, and then there was the 90s. People of different ages that I talk to, all know about the emergence of urban music in the 90s. We remember it fondly, some of us more than others. I wish, so much, that the vibe, the feeling, the freshness of the music of that time could come back on a global scale.
Second, the TV show that helped fuel the phenomenon returns this month. Arsenio Hall had me begging my parents to let me stay up late to watch, Boyz II Men, Jodeci, New Edition, and so many of my other heroes. If Arsenio does anything upon his renaissance, I hope he stays true to the spirit and leadership he had in bringing real music to the masses.
