CD Reviews

Hopefully the start of a long and sucessful career

"I was aware of Heather Headley from her stint in the Broadway musical Aida and the concert recording of Dreamgirls. However, I bought this CD with some trepidation. Too many sucessful Broadway stars don't quite make the transition to genres such as Pop and R&B. But the relatively cheap price of the CD made me go for it. It turns out that I got quite a bargain. Headley's debut is a winner. Standouts include "He Is", "Nature Of A Man", "Fallin' For You" and "Sista Girl".Headley's vocals are strong...no weak singing glossed over by beats here. You know just by listening to the material that this is a real singer who doesn't have to resort to lip synching, booty shaking or other tricks to camoflauge lack of vocal talent. A word of warning to musical theater fans who are expecting material similar to what you find on an Audra McDonald type CD. Headley's effort is strictly R&B so if you don't enjoy the genre this is not for you.For those who do enjoy R&B, you're in for quite a treat."
I Can't Say Enough.....

"Looking for a well performed CD that is full of passion, with great lyrics and a good blend of tempos, without all the bump `n grind undertones? Well, this is it. In a time when many of us are wondering where all the "real" R&B singers are, along comes Heather Headley. This album is the perfect blend of R&B and neo-Soul music. I highly recommend this CD for anyone who feels the same. For anybody who enjoys India.Arie, Jill Scott, or Anita Baker, I think you'll enjoy this CD. I instantly liked this CD. Less than 24 hours after listening to the CD (which belonged to a friend), it was in my collection. As a matter of fact, I'm listening to it as I write this review. For anyone who loves the lyrics in the first release "He Is", this album is full of beautifully written songs that are performed with such passion. Just take a listen to "Fulltime", "I Wish I wasn't" and "Always Been Your Girl", three ballads that have you saying, I know how that feels. Heather Headley is a performer who can sing both ballads and up tempo songs that have you singing and/or dancing, for example, "Sunday" is an up tempo groove with a slight comical appeal. "Sista Girl" has the neo-Soul appeal, but is a very poignant song. It is also a song that all teenage girls should listen to, I mean really listen and hear everything that is being said."
LOVE IT

"Another woman who should be getting more radio play. What is wrong with these radio stations? Ashanti who? Heather has taken her broadway skills and put them on a nice CD that will really touch your heart. He is that song is AWESOME. This is an album you should have in your collection and won't be sorry to play it years from now."
