You're in for a treat, for this is something special. It's not so much what it is - there's no shortage of love song collections out there - as who it is, and her perspective. These are the love songs of a strong, independent woman. She knows what she wants, and she knows how to ask for it. But these are also the love songs of a woman who's sung the Gospel. She sings of desire, first love, and a Higher Love. Well known as a magnificent singer, Ms. Winbush is so much more than that. The list of classic songs that came from her pen is too long to detail here, but a few from this collection deserve mention. Come My Way, a hit for Reni & Angela in the early '80s, became a classic of the Isley Brothers' catalogue. I've Learned To Respect The Power Of Love, long associated with Stephanie Mills (her version is magnificent), was written by @ngela. Not sold yet? As a producer or arranger, Angela has worked with Janet Jackson, Lalah Hathaway and The Isley Brothers.

"Hip-O Records sends this St. Louis, Mo. (hometown girl) our way, who began singing gospel in her church choir...also learned to play the piano at an early age. Angela Winbush is one of the most underated vocalists in the musical world today. A voice that is extremely smooth with a blend of quality that only class can express. Each listener is captivated by her deep and soulful performances, which comes from working with Al Jarreau and Stevie Wonder as the bug bit her and changed her life for good.In 1980, she met singer/composer Rene' moore and became "Rene' & Angela" recorded several albums together "Wall To Wall" (1981), "Rise" (1983) and "Street Called Desire" (1986). By 1987, Angela went solo with "Sharp" (1987), "It's The Real Thing" (1989), "Angela Winbush" (1994), "Ultimate Collection" (2001) and now "Greatest Love Songs" (2003), featuring highlights of previous albums mentioned. If it's love your looking for---look no further, you've found it.Her album for 2003 showcases the best of both musical worlds---part duo and her solo performances. What a sexy, vibrant and smooth lady she has become. Everything from beautiful ballads to funk-dance driven with the God-given-talent that only prevails when sharing her emotions with her fans and audience. Don't take my word for it just listen to "HELLO BELOVED", featuring Ronald Isley and Angela with lyrics to die for ~ then we have "YOU HAD A GOOD GIRL", a soulful and mournful message that will stay with you for days ~ and this has to be some of my favorites "SENSUAL LOVER" and "YOUR SMILE", tells it like it is, when Angela takes you under her spell of love, nothing else matters.Total Time 79:51 on 15 Tracks ~ Hip-O Records 440-063-434-2 ~ (2003)"

"Angela Winbush is one of the few true female artist of our time. A voice so unique and rich with a tone that is truly her own signature sound. Many may not know but Angela is one of the best female producers of our era. She is also one of the most beautiful and sexy entertainers ever to grace the stage. If you got a chance to see her live...awesome ! This CD captures the sultry side of Angela completely. I would advise you purchase every song she has ever written including the hits songs that she produced for the Isley Bros. (Between the Sheets CD) and others. Angela where ever you are give us more ! Your're a rare and extreme talent. Your songs are timeless."
