Boyz II Men, Twenty

Boyz II Men came on the music scene in 1988 as a quintet at the Philadelphia High School for Creative and Performing Arts; the group was originally named Unique Attraction. When original member Marc Nelson left the group to go solo before their first record deal, the group became a quartet; the members were Nathan Morris, Wayne Morris, Shawn Stockman and Michael McCray. Boyz II Men hit number 1on the pop charts with their single “End of the Road” one of my all time favorites in 1992, this single would break a record for staying at number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 13 weeks breaking a decades-old record held by Elvis Presley. Boyz II Men would not stop there, they had two more hits “I’ll Make Love to You” and “One Sweet Day” (with Mariah Carey) these two singles exceeded the records they had previously set. Boyz II Men got their inspiration from New Edition’s, Boyz II Men went back stage at a Bell Biv DeVoe concert were they met Michael Bivins an aspiring producer and sung “Can You Stand the Rain” cappella and the rest is history. Boyz II Men is a trio now, Michael McCary has left the group in 2003 due to health issues. Boyz II Men is the most amazing and successful R&B group they have sold 60 million albums worldwide this number is still growing. Boyz II Men has another album out called “Twenty” the two songs I really like are “More Than You Ever Know (Ft. Charlie Wilson) and “So Amazing”. I am a Boyz II Men fan for life these men can sing they are truly amazing. You can hear songs from Boyz II Men’s new album “Twenty” on Streetwise Radio.

Lalah Hathaway

Born Eulaulah Donyll Hathaway on December 16, 1968 Chicago Illinois, better known as Lalah Hathaway. Lalah is the daughter of the late great Donny Hathaway, one of my all time favorite singer, songwriters and producer.  Lalah lost her father when she was ten years old, but she has her fathers flare for words and writing songs that have something to say.
When Lalah was growing up she was around music, at the age of three she was taking piano lessons. Lalah attended Berklee in Boston in the late 1980s, there is where she perfected her craft and grew into the singer/songwriter she is today.  While at Berklee she released her first album title “Lalah Hathaway” 1990, the single from that album “Heaven Knows” is still one of my favorites. Lalah has performed with some amazing artist like on Grover Washington’s album “Next Exit” the song “Love Like This” is a beautiful song. .Lalah is versatile she  has worked with other artist  like Take 6, Mary J Blige, The Winans and Marcus Miller. Lalah collaborated with jazz legend Joe Sample on the album “The Song Lives On”.
This album shows off Lalah’s vocal range.  I say some of these singers that are supposed to be superstars need to take lessons from Lalah on how to sing.  Lalah is not only a singer/song writer she is also the National Ambassador for the Circle of Promise. This organization was created by Susan G. Komen for the Cure; Lalah has influence women to get to get the test for breast cancer along with family member. Lalah has a new album “Where It all Begins” due to be released on October 18, 2011. I really like and enjoy listening to Lalah Hathaway she is an amazing singer/ songwriter. You can listen to Lalah Hathaway on Streetwise Radio.

CHELSEY BELL, Now Playing on Streetwise Radio

Soulful sound that is fresh, soothing and addictive . Her song "Be Your Lover",
is a hit on Streetwise Radio.
Michael K. Ealey
Chelsey Bell grew up in Houston, TX and has always had a strong passion for music. With a supportive mother who loved RanB/Soul music and a father who was an amazing vocalist himself, she discovered that she had a talent that the world deserved to experience. Growing up she listened to many different genres of music, and when she graduated from high school, she began to pursue her gift and perform in local talent competitions and open mic venues around Houston. While performing at the Red Cat Jazz Café, a popular restaurant and performance venue in the heart of Houston, she met Aaron Johnson, Senior Vice President of Creative Marketing for Bungalo/Universal Music group. He saw something that he knew would make her a household name and heard what he knew everyone else deserved to experience.
While Chelsey continued to work full time and pursue her education at the University of Houston full time, she found the time to record a 5 song demo with Lab Ox Productions. The result was a completed and professional demo CD with songs that sounded ready for radio airplay. Having lost touch with Aaron while pursuing so many endeavors, she decided that she’d send her demo to him just to hear his thoughts. He immediately called her when he heard the quality of her song content and the production and he started to make moves toward getting her into the studio and onto the radio.
In the beginning of 2010, Chelsey went to Dallas, TX to record a song with producer Goldfinger. There she made the hit song, “Keep It Jumpin”, and it began to take off. DJs in the South loved the song and clubs that added it to their set list received an overwhelming response from the crowd. Currently she is still riding on the high of the success from that record and is planning to start a college tour to continue promoting it. Chelsey also plans to get back in the studio with Lab Ox as well as other great producing talents and it would seem that the sky is the limit for this up and coming performer.

Amy Jade Winehouse September 14, 1983-July 23, 2011

Amy Winehouse at Bowery Ballroom 18Image via Wikipedia

Amy Winehouse was a singer that lived a fast turbulent life. Amy grew up
in a Jewish family were she was introduced to Jazz at an early age. Amy’s
grandmother wanted her to attend Susi Earnshaw Theatre School to get more
musical training. Amy went there for four years before she was kicked out
at the age of 14 for “not applying herself” and for piercing her nose. I
guess you can say that was the start of her rebellious side. When Amy was
ten she started a rap group call Sweet ’n’ Sour with her childhood friend.
 At the age of 13 Amy’s music career started, she began as an
entertainment journalist for the World Entertainment News Networks,
singing with Bolsa Band and writing music. In 2002 she signed to Simon
Fuller’s 19
Management, they were keeping her secret. In 2003 Frank Amy’s debut album
was released it had a Jazz influence, she co-wrote every song on the album
and it went platinum in 2004.Girl groups of the 60s was Amy’s greatest
love, she copied the beehive hairdo and the Cleopatra makeup from The
Ronettes, Amy’s look was unique. Amy’s Back to Black album came out in
2006; it had the song “Rehab” on it. I like the song “Rehab” it’s a catchy
song. I guess this song was probably a rebellious denial of her problem.
Maybe she should have gone to Rehab. While writing this bog I listened to
the Frank and the Back to Black albums, I was pleasantly surprised they
were actually good albums. I like the Frank album the most it has that
Jazzy old time fell. In 2008 Amy’s Black to Black won all of awards.
Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Female Pop Vocal
Performance for the single “Rehab”, and her Back to Black album was
nominated for Album of the Year but won Best Pop Vocal Album award. Amy
was a talented singer song writer who got caught up in the drugs, like all
the greats who died at the age of 27, Jimi Hendricks, Kurt Corbain and
Janis Joplin and many more artists. Amy Winehouse will be missed by her
fans; it’s a shame she won’t be here to continue giving her fans her music
for years to come.

Streetwise Radio 2nd Anniversary

Wow! I can hardly believe that Streetwise Radio has been on the air for two years.

Our R an B ratings at has moved us from 17 to 11 out of 440 stations in just one month. This is due to Michael finding and playing music from new artists that the other radio stations are not playing, like Kenya, Arika Kane, Bodine Johnson & Jae Franklin just to name a few. We’re not only an R & B station. We also cater to the Jazz lovers with DJ Michelle I on the Jazz Café. This show is on from 12 pm to 1pm everyday so you can get your Expresso on at lunch time.

Timothy Bloom-“Til The End Of Time” Video

This video is amazing, Timothy Bloom captures the meaning of true love in this video. The way the words coming out of their mouths while they hold each other OMG! Some People are getting to caught up on the nudity of the video, if they would just sit back and concentrate on the words the nudity doesn’t matter. This is a expression of love, a love that only a few of us will know in our life time. There are some other videos with people with clothes on that come across trashy and really sexual. I think Timothy Bloom did a good job portraying their closeness and vulnerability. I have a feeling this song is going to be use in a lot of weddings. I loved it!
You can hear Timothy Bloom “Til The End Of Time” on Streetwise Radio.

Phoebe Snow 1950-2011

Phoebe Ann Snow was best known for her song “Poetry Man”. Phoebe passed on April 27, 2011 at the age of 60 from complications of a stroke she had
suffered in 2010. Phoebe’s personal life was challenging, she was a single mom of a severely brain damaged girl. Phoebe was told by the doctors that
her daughter would not live past a toddler years, but she lived to be 31 years. Phoebe professional career started in 1972 at the Bitter End club, where Denny Cordell a promotion executive for Shelter Records saw her perform. Phoebe signed with Shelter Records and released her first album titled Phoebe Snow. From this album the hit single “Poetry Man”, a beautiful song that Phoebe wrote, put her on the map as one of the best songwriters and singers of that era. During Phoebe’s professional career,she  performed with artist of all styles like The Persuasions, Zoot Sims,
Teddy Wilson, David Bromberg and Dave Mason, Paul Simon, Linda Ronstadt,
Lou Rawls, Boz Scaggs, Take 6, Mavis Staples, Bonnie Raitt, Donald Fagen, Billy Joel, Hiroshi Fujiwara, Black Mambazo, Jackson Brown just to name a few. In 2010 prior to her stroke Phoebe had planned to release a new album. I wonder what this album is going to sound like, it probably will be good because phoebe could write and sing. Phoebe Snow was a Bluesy,Jazzy Folk singer that had a unique voice that will be missed, but will
live on through her classic songs. You can hear her music on Streetwise Radio.

Ambrosius Marsha

NEW YORK - DECEMBER 06:  Marsha Ambrosius atte...Image by Getty Images via @daylife
Marsha Ambrosius

The first time I heard of Marsha Ambrosius was when she was with the Soul/
R&B duo Floetry with Natalie Stewart. A friend had just bought the album we were listening to it and it was good. Floetic was the name of the album it had two top ten singles “Say Yes” and “Getting Late”. Marsha Ambrosius solo career has her collaborating with artist of different genres like Styles P’s “I’m back”, The Game’s “Start from Scratch”, “Why You Hate The
Game” (also featuring Nas), Busta Rhymes’ “Get You Some” and “Cocanina”,Nas “Hustlers” (also featuring The Game), Hi-Tek’s “Music for Life” and Jamie Foxx’s Freak’in Me”. In 2009 Marsha Ambrosius landed herself a placement with R&B and Hip Hop artists Alicia Keys, Jamie Foxx, Mario,
Fabulous, Slum Village and Wale. Also in 2009, a number of record labels approached Marsha Ambrosius offering her a record deal. After she performed at the SOB’s concert companied by The Roots in NYC, she signed
with J Records on December 2009. Her debut solo Late Night & Early Morning was released on March 1, 2011. Marsha’s single “Far Away” is now number eight on Billboard Top 100 single chart. You can also hear it on Streetwise Radio. Marsha Ambrosius is an English born R/B Soul sister who
is climbing the charts. When you first see her, you would not expect that voice would come out of her but it does. I think she is an artist that can sing. I really like her music and her style.

Wyclef Jean Supposedly Shot In Hand

Wyclef at the ONEXONE benefit in San Francisco...Image via Wikipedia

Wyclef Jean thought he was shot in the hand while he was in Haiti, supporting Michael “Sweet Micky” Martelly for president. Wyclef was in the car with Busta Ryhmes, he got out of the car to make a phone call and shots rang out. Wyclef panicked and thought he was shot in the hand
because he saw blood on his shirt and sneakers. The doctors reported that he was only cut by glass. Wyclef was going to run for president, but he was disqualified, because he lives in the United States. I think it was a
blessing that he was disqualified, because Haiti is so corrupted he probably would have been assassinated before he got into office. Who knows if they were shooting at him or was it meant for someone else is yet to be determined. Thank God it was not serious, because it would have been
ashamed to have loose a talent and humanitarian.

Zion Birdsong " FiyaMan", Now Playing on Streetwise Radio

Bio: Zion Birdsong 

In his teen years, Birdsong began performing at local talent shows and high schools, “Hosea's Feed the Hungry(ATL)”, various nightclubs, and many other functions in Atlanta, GA. Seeing his talent, he was invited to work along side of DJ Nabs (In The Labs Productions) and Michael Maudin (Mauldin Brand Agency) as a writer and producer. 

Birdsong went through a long period of soul-searching and found love to be his niche. He found an undying compassion for the well being of people, which deterred him from pursuing any specific genre of music. He quotes, “Love is the language life understands. With it there is no division.” With a mighty conviction, he established a self-contained musical library of tasteful tunes that he refers to as "EARCANDi Tasteful Music". These tunes later caught the attention of local listeners who strongly support EARCANDi. Birdsong is now taking the necessary steps on the path to becoming a Tasteful Music legend.

Shun Ward "Lift Off ". Now Playing On Ultra Mix

Biography of Shun Ward

Christopher DeShun Ward was born on February 16, 1988 in Tyler, Texas. He is the only child to his mother, Pamela Ward. Shortly after his birth, Shun’s mother relocated to Houston, Texas.
At the age of three, his mother and great grandmother discovered that he loved to sing. He had an incredible voice and a talent for remembering church songs. When he was five years old, he was invited to sing and travel with the New Rising Star Missionary Baptist Church Choir. They performed at many churches around Houston. Throughout their travels, Shun became very well known and gained much respect around the community for his strong vocals.
Eventually, at age seven, his great grandmother (who was one of the church organizers) asked if he would like to become the lead singer of The New Rising Star Missionary Baptist Church choir. Shun was excited to take on the responsibility.
Later and away from his gospel roots, Shun began performing at talent shows around the north side of Houston. He would go on to win a youth choir competition at Forest Brook High School where he competed against 14-15 year olds.
At fourteen years old Shun continued to compete at several different talent shows and also experimented with writing and recording original material. Unfortunately, as he honed his writing skills, he also became influenced by the corruption of the inner city. His school grades declined as he started smoking and selling illegal substances.
Then seventeen years old Shun and his mother moved to Nacogdoches after his great grandmother passed away. Shun was distraught.
At eighteen he joined a group called the Get Some with no success.
At nineteen he joined a group called Smash Click. He helped write several songs with the Smash Click. This was another failed venture.
At twenty-one, he was incarcerated for a year. After his release, he vowed to change his life and get back to the things that he loved most- singing, writing, and recording.
At twenty-two, more mature and focused, he requested help from family to make his dreams come true. Together they formed GruvSoul with Shun Ward as the premiere artist. A star is born!
Shun is presently working on his debut 2011 album release entitled, Shun Ward City. The first four tracks of the project entitled, The Prelude to Shun Ward City, is available throughout the internet.

Fede4real (born Federico Manuel Nomo Fernandez December 3 1981) is a singer, keyboardist songwriter, producer, performer, filmmaker, actor and fashion model. The first thing that comes to your mind when you listen to Fede4real is talent but there is a story behind that talent. It’s a story that begins in Equatorial Guinea (Africa). Raised with his mother (Spanish) and his father (Equatorial Guinea) at early age Fede learned to play piano with his father, a great jazz guitar player. He played blues and jazz as kid while being influenced by African percussions just for the love of it without knowing what the future hold for him. When he was 12 years old his family moved from Africa to Spain. Fede then took classic piano and singing lessons and singing at church shaped his high tone voice. When he turned 18 years old Fede got into modelling. Soon he was selected for cast in major TV commercials, top fashion editorials and top fashion shows. Fede has worked in commercials and printing ads all around Europe, has shot commercials in Europe and U.S, and grace top fashion magazines like Maxim, Vanity and Marie Claire. Fede also walked the Madrid Fashion Week shows many times, the biggest fashion date in Spain and has worked as sport and fitness model and hosted many awards. Fede joined a boy band named 6L1 in 2003. The group was conceived NSYNC alike. Fede took the lead in the group teaching singing and being the lead singer. He started to write his own songs for the group in 2003 but lack of work from some members made the project fail. He then did hide for years, improving his singing and production while writing songs. After working in his first demo, Fede decided to go straight for his debut album REBIRTH 03.12.06. Fede4real wrote and produced the album. Fede directed and produced 2 music videos for REBIRTH 03.12.06. It included R&B pop beautiful ballads and mid-tempo tunes but somehow he was not satisfied with the sound and cancelled promotion.
