This 43 year old R&B singer from Michigan is so underrated. His career did not take off like it should have. Rome signed with RCA and released his debut album “Rome” in 1997 selling over half a million copies. I remember his song "I Belong to You (Everytime I See Your Face)" was a hit. I was sure after that song we would be hearing from Rome for many years to come . Well that was not the case. While Rome was still under contract with RCA when he tried to put out his second album “Thank You” it was rejected by RCA and it was never released. This goes to show you that the record industry can make or break a career. It is a shame that some really talented artists never get their chance to shine. Rome came out with three other albums after leaving RCA “Rome 2000: Thank You”, “To The Highest” and “Do It”. Rome is an amazing singer that in my opinion can sing better than some of these well-known singers out there. Some of my favorite songs from Rome are “Never Be A Love“, “Just Once, Once More, Three Times”, “Real Love” and “Real Joy”. You can listen to songs from Rome on Streetwise Radio. You can also listen to Streetwise Radio on Pandora, iTunes, MyGen365, Athena365 and Live365.
