- 2. "If You Really Love Me" by Stevie Wonder: "Speaking of Stevie, this is the 1st Stevie tune I ever heard when I was a kid! I was blown away! Since then, I have become infatuated with his writing, range, and vocal tone! He was the first male artist I was totally influenced by!. I really studied his music and tried to emulate his vocal style of singing from a very young age."
- 4. "She's Always a Woman" by Billy Joel: "This song epitomizes every emotion a woman can evoke, and it's so easy to connect to! Listen to all of those beautiful metaphors! I've always enjoyed his way with words on this song!"
- 6. "Slow Dancing In a Burning Room" by John Mayer: "You Know, John Mayers' evolvment proves that there are kats in my generation who make quality, timeless music! I can totally identify with the lyric of this song, and I can't get enough of those rich, soulful, heartfelt guitar adlibs! Easily one of my favorites of his to date! I mean, the title of this song alone should win a Grammy!"
- 7. "The Beauty of Who You Are" by Marc Broussard: "First of all, I love the raw, gritty tone of his voice! The vocal is superb because it's not over-sung and it perfectly illustrates what I love most about this song, which is the lyric. The way he caresses each word of the song captures the pure essence of how a love song should be written."
- 8. "Have You Ever Loved a Woman (Live)" by Derek & The Dominos: "Talk about an artist who's covered just about all genres of music. For me, you have to dig in the crates to find some of his early bluesy stuff to really appreciate where he's coming from! You can truly feel his pain in this song!"
- 9. "A Change Is Gonna Come" by Sam Cooke: "To me, this song exemplifies how the black community struggled to be treated equally, and gain civil rights. It's such a spiritual song, from the heart! Sam Cooke is one of my favorites! He pretty much pioneered soul music and I feel, as a singer, that I owe him a certain debt of gratitude. The way he brought blacks and whites together through music during a time of racial divide proves the sheer power of music . . . and that's something I'll always be conscious of!"
