"Regina Belle is one of those amazing singers who has been so stellar for so many years, but it was not until the massive success of the song "Baby Come To Me" that a wide audience was exposed to her magic. She never reached that pinacle again because her amazing appeal is not the fast food that most crave.
If you are a fan, I need not say anymore as I am preaching to the choir. If you happen to find this listing by error or because you were guided to it based on another purchase that you have made think of Regina as the very best of Anita, Patti (both LaBelle and Austin), Gladys but entirely original. Regina has a powerhouse vocal range that is so powerful yet equally stunning when quiet and controlled. She is a child of interpretative singers so that when she sings you listen as she tells you what she feels.
This package is the best that you'll find if you only want one release as it has all her most known/popular songs. I have bought most of her releases as her voice, like say a Luther Vandross, can move you and remind you of the power of music. While most who may not even have heard "Baby Come To Me" must have heard it least "A Whole New World" fromDisney's "Alladin" which is a great song but only skims the surface as songs like "If I Could", "This Is Love", "Make It Like It Was" and great remakes of "Didn't I" and Teddy's "Love TKO" really show you Regina's range. Many others have tried to tackle "Love TKO" (even Hall & Oates, who I really like) but Regina's version is the only one that I heard that stands out among the many who have taken a shot at it.
If you like big voices with masterful control, buy this without hesitation. 5 easily earned stars. Keep on singing Regina!"
Does not disappoint

"I recently saw Regina in concert which prompted me to buy her CD. Needless to say, like her performance, her CD did not disappoint!! Her vocal skills coupled with beautifully written lyics and music combine to provide a great listening experience. I am amazed that Regina has not gained more recognition as she is truly one of the great voices of her generation along with Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey & Anita Baker. Definitely a must buy for any fan of really good music.
Outstanding in every way

"Ah yes the soulful, jazzy sounds of Regina Belle
I happened to come across this cd on Amazon.com quite by accident. Having never heard of Regina Belle i did play some of the sound samples and loved everyone of them. After that I decided to purchase the CD. Every time I play it I like it just that much more.
Her voice reminds me a little of Billie Holiday with a helping of Dinah Washington, Roberta Flack, Gladys Knight and Patti La belle thrown in. Soulful, powerful and beautiful vocal styling's all in one voice, amazing. It is very easy to get caught up in the emotion of the song that she is singing because she makes the songs so personal.
"Didn't I blow your mind". This is one of my favorite songs by the Stylistics and I didn't think that anyone could do it better and then I heard Regina Belle sing it and I was totally blown away, what an incredible voice and style.
Another one of my favorite songs is "Baby come to me" that is every bit as good as the Patti Austin/James Ingram version.
"Love TKO", Originally a Tedd Pendegrass composition, truly brought to life by Regina with the amazing power in her sweet voice.
My Favorite Aladdins Theme with Peabo Bryson, What a song what a voice what a duet. Absolutely astounding and beautiful.
Every song on this cd is a great listen. Both the production and engineering are done very well and serve to highlight Regina's style.
What we have here is fourteen great songs made better by the fact that Regina Belle is singing them. If you like the sound of a stunning female voice singing then this is for you."
