Let’s take a much needed break and have some fun…
If I could be any musician/singer/songwriter, I’d be…
I’ll go first…I’d be none other than….Ella Fitzgerald!
Who would you be?
Ella is great that was a great video. An artist of that caliber no longer exists. We will never in this lifetime see one like her. However I would be Chaka Khan the early years. Wild, funky and sexy and very versatile singer she can sing jazz, pop and I’m sure if she just wanted to challenge herself country. And then again I’d probably want to a pop diva like our dearly departed Whitney Houston. clear crisp vocals and she was just a class act. Unlike the young artist of today.
Chaka Khan inspired the likes of Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and was a member of the Black Panther Party. Good Choice!

I always liked Marvin Gaye. I always thought he was a smooth brother. All the ladies loved him. When I was a kid my dad used to play his music all the time while driving in the car. Marvin was a very troubled soul. Like Michael Jackson,Whitney,Otis Redding and Sam Cooke–he left us way too soon. But his music and memory will live on.
Wonderfully & crazy talented, individualistic, smart and out of the mainstream.
My Man …
Quincy Jones – arranger, composer, conductor, producer extraordinaire!
A super gifted & talented brother who’s apparently outlasting the Energizing Bunny.
One of his songs inspired the choosing of my online ID.
Ooooooooh, Prince, Marvin is my secret love interest. Good choice for the male singers! Did I ever tell you that I have his anthology?
Yes, Quincy is a great black entrepreneur. He’s responsible for many of our talented composers and artists.
I like non-mainstream artists too that make a great statement.
I remember reading Divided Soul by David Ritz. That was a good read. Especially the tumultuous relationship with his father.
This is extremely hard, because there are so many to choose from, but in my current state of mind, it would have to be Sam Cooke, because his tragic end is extremely touching, as is the song Change Gonna Come. That song is too beautiful.
This is really easy for me. I would be Jimi Hendricks and especially Jimi Hendricks at Woodstock. Though I don’t want all the white women and maybe only some of the drugs. HEY!! don’t judge.
Al Jarreau…….Class, style, and a voice like liquid silk poured over ice cubes on a hot day.
@Ron Thomas Al Jarrau is one of my favorites. I have seen him in concert twice. It was wonderful. Left me wanting more. My favorite Al Jarrau cd is All Fly Away Home. I the song High Crime. I love just about anything he does. Good choice.
Thank You Mary….
If I had the choice to be a musician…this would be him. If you have never heard of him or his music, or seen him play, it’s a unique experience.
LOL! Ok..no judgement here.
Great musical choices again, sir! Did you see my post on Ai Du?
Too many artists to name, because music’s a passion of mine. If I absolutely must pick one, though, well, I absolutely admire and adore Chaka Khan and am furious that Mary used her psychic powers to beat me to the punch. 😉
Honorable mentions must go to Sia, India.Arie, Alicia Keys, And Sara Bareilles. I’d say Rachel Crow or Ed Sheeran, but I don’t feel like being 13 or a man.
With is powerful robust vocals! ” Clarence Carter” definitely!
