On the "A" w/Souleo: After 15 Years, Singer Regina Belle Returns To R&B
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Veteran singer Regina Belle is freer than she's ever felt before. Known for her '80s and '90s R&B hits ("Make It Like It Was, "Baby Come to Me," and "A Whole New World" with Peabo Bryson) the singer spent the past 15 years shying away from the music that made her famous. In that span of time she underwent brain surgery in 2009 and devoted herself to recording gospel music and being a pastor at two churches in Atlanta, GA alongside her husband (Pastor John Sidney Battle III, former NBA star with The Atlanta Hawks and Cleveland Cavaliers). But now after a self-imposed exile from secular music she is returning with a new album The Day Life Began, set for release on January 22, 2016. The album--recorded in an impressive five days--fuses her passions for R&B, gospel and jazz with songs such as the romance of "Imperfect Love," the foot-stomping gospel of "He's Alright" and the jazzy "A Night of Love." Belle shared with us details on her newfound personal freedom enabling h ...

Nicholas Ferroni: Using Music in the Classroom to Educate, Engage and Promote Understanding
Huffington Post - over 4 years
The song "Gone" by 'N Sync stops me in my tracks and nearly brings me to tears; this is not because it's a horrible song but because, whenever I hear it, I am reminded of the night my college girlfriend and I broke up for the 15th time. (It was for the best that time.) I'm not sharing this for sympathy, or because I'm still bitter towards her (she's an amazing person). My point is to share what we all know: We are emotionally connected to music -- particularly specific songs. We all have songs that remind us of people, places, events, good times and bad times and that bring back memories that have long been repressed or even forgotten. These songs define our lives and we all have this personal and emotional playlist that I call the "Soundtrack of Our Lives." We all have this soundtrack, and the choices of songs are never finalized until we are dead. Music is the one constant to which everyone is attached, and that everyone understands. We may disagree about which musicians ...

CRITIC’S NOTEBOOK; Lady Antebellum’s ‘Own the Night’
NYTimes - over 5 years
No act in contemporary pop is more careful than the bionic country trio Lady Antebellum, which never leaves a note out of place, which never lets a feeling spill outside the lines. It takes basic components — male-female harmony, sturdy pop arrangements with light brushes of country, an unerring sense of when to shift a song from desperate to
