Soulful Saturday- Chrisette Michele

Contrary to popular belief, I don't just like music from the 90s... all the time. There are a couple contemporary artists that I listen to on a regular basis, and Chrisette Michele is one of them. I actually saw a concert that she put on in Washington DC in 2008 when I was there for a conference. Amazing. Seriously, her voice is an instrument that everyone should become used to hearing (and loving). She is a very talented young lady. Her fusion of jazz and R&B is nothing short of amazing, and she makes me believe that there are still "artists" out there, not just pop stars. Check out a few selections below.

If I had my way

*You're who I desire, you light my fire.
*One day we'll make love; passion unheard of. I'll be your woman, if I had my way.

**I like to call this song: One day you're sorry ass will realize... but that might be a little too bitter for some folks! :)**
*So I think I'm just about over being your girlfriend. I'm leaving.
*No more wondering what you been doing; where you been sleeping. It's over.

Best Of Me
*Loved you, lost you; thought I'd give you all the best of me. We departed, brokenhearted. I need to be free.
*My momma made me much wiser- what's mine will be just for me.
*Promise I'm glad you're happy. When it's my time, it will be! Look I'm moving on.

Don't Speak
**Remake of a great No Doubt song

Love Is You
**It is fair to say that one of the reasons I love this video is because it features an interracial couple... whatever- I'm allowed! :)**
*Freedom to breathe, oh baby, love is you.
*When the chips are down, love will stick around.
