MS Genii - Tonight Another Night
Category : Southern Soul
Hits : 5595

DSC_4949Growing up in a house of a jazz/gospel singer, my mom  was my idol along with Etta James,  Ella Fitzgerald, Sara Vaughn, Billie Holiday, and Mahalia Jackson. I started singing in church at the early age of five. Throughout the years, I entered every school  talent show and won. At age twelve, I joined a local gospel choir, Memphis Community Singers, became the youngest member , lead vocalist and gained  gained notarity on Oris Mays Show, Bobby Jones  Gospel, and traveled every year to Ebenezer Baptist Church in Chicago, Illinois for the NAACP/ P.U.S.H. celebration gracing the stage with Shirley Ceasar, Dottie Peeples, Walter and Tremaine  Hawkins.

In 1992, I met Sam Fallie (Mr Sam). We became best friends. Blessed  by fate, we were destined to join our talents. We began collaborating at various events. I moved out of town briefly. In 2010, I moved back to Memphis. Sam and I started dating and I started as a background vocalist for him shortly after. We spent a lot of time in the studio together. Songs written for other female artists such as Sheba Potts- Wright, I would record demos so they could get the feel of the song before they actually recorded it.

John Ward, CEO of Ecko Records  and Sam heard a Betty Wright feel in my tone and decided it was time for me to showcase my talents as a solo artist in Southern  Soul. Sam wrote Tonight’s Another Night to fill slot 7 on Sweet Blues Mix 11 compilation CD . Ecko Records released it August 2013. The first year released  Great Britain and  Canada picked it up.
