4.0 out of 5 stars If Aretha Were Still Making Music Like This... June 24, 2001
Format:Audio CD
...this is what she would sound like. Shirley takes the legacy started by Aretha and brings us a modern version of blues/soul. Her range and various vocal textures are reminiscent enough of Aretha that it's almost as though Shirley studied her.

Subtract some of Aretha's subtlety though. Shirley tends to go overboard a bit. But her tone and timbre are good enough that she can get away with that where most singers couldn't, no matter how well they have the technical part down.

The songs and arrangements on this CD are for you if you like what is mostly black gospel music with secular themes, with lots of southern soul elements.

Fine piece of R&B, this. Enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars if you like Aretha, you'll like this! March 24, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This album was recommended to me by a friend who knows what a fan of Aretha Franklin I am. She sounds a lot like Aretha, but brings a soul and emotion to the music that is all her own. I think this album will appeal to a lot of people, from soul lovers, to people who love disco/house divas like Martha Wash.

Some really great performances here. Made me wonder why I had never heard of this woman! Amazing. If you like powerhouse female vocals, this album provides big time!
