Ok - I finally realized the name of the man I was trying to remember when posting to the "Wasted Talent", thread. Not that this man wasted his talent - but whomever wrote an introductory for his site - made mention of the fact that he as underrated.
Howard Hewitt. And the song was - "How Do I Know I Love You." Lovely song indeed.

medusa9e2003 - I agree w/you girl. I thought Howard's voice sounded familiar. I think I had heard that he used to sing w/Shalamar when that song I mentioned first came out. I used to love Shalamar. "Second Time Around." LOL!
Did you go over his website? He already put out a statement about Kobe Bryant. I hope that situation turns out for the better. He also has some nice photos - to include - he, Smokey & Otis. I'll say!
And I just love where he is coming from as it relates to the type of music he does and wants to continue to do. He believes in the ballads and the like. And we sure need him and more like him. Kudos to him. Here's hoping he excels and gets more notice.
Funkyone D J Dollar Bill - the site you mentioned is truly interesting isn't it. The guy that owns it knew what to do w/the treasures, gems and memories, he accumulated ova the years - didn't he, and as it pertains to people he met? He made quite a few wonderful aquaintances. I couldn't find it listed - but when accessing the site - I noticed that he really praised Curtis Mayfield. And could anyone blame him? Curtis was a treasure of the first order.

Funkyone - here is what the website owner wrote about Curtis. I forgot where I'd seen it. Duh!
"These are just a few of the famous artists that I was privileged enough to meet when they performed at the Apollo. One of the most memorable of these was Curtis Mayfield. My friends and I used to stand in the school hallway and harmonize the songs of Curtis Mayfield and The Impressions. I never imagined that I would actually meet him."
Wasn't there a song by Curtis in the "Cooley High", movie?
