Any fans of Regina Belle? Wonderful wonderful voice. Here are a couple of my favorites. The first one is a live version of "Sista/ If I could" in a tribute to the great Nancy Wilson. Her voice on "If I could" is spot on. Love that song. The other is "Make it like it was".
Baby Come to Me is another good one. She also did a fine cover of Donnie Hathaway’s Someday We’ll All be Free on her 1989 album Stay With Me.
Blue Lovett of the Manhattans was the first one to record her, see
...midway through, under the heading "Blue Records"
and still more a bit further on.
Always loved her "Take Your Love Away" ....
One of the few jazzy sounding people that I like.
Thanks for sharing. I've never heard this track before. I love it.

in New York for continuing to play her music and supporting her. Her remake of the Main Ingredient's classic has long
been one of my favorites...
BTW, thanks skool for posting her tribute to my beloved grand dame Nancy Wilson. I'd never seen thsat before....
