What's up welcome to Soul Sundays!
Today's selection is Betty Wright with my favorites "Tonight is the Night", "The best girls don't always win", "Girls, can't do what the guys do", "No pain, No Gain" these songs are all Anthems to either how to keep your man, How to win your man back, How to get over your man or losing your Virginity to that special someone or not that special someone! HAHA
Bessie Regina Norris,better known by her stage name, Betty Wright (born December 21, 1953) is a Miami-based soul and R&B singer-songwriter, who won fame in the 1970s with hits such as "Clean Up Woman" and "Tonight Is the Night". A pioneering singer-songwriter and entrepreneur, she remains one of the few black female musicians to have a gold record on her own vanity label. She possesses a four-octave vocal range and is adept at using the whistle register.
I remember my mom always playing "Tonight is the night" she said it reminded her of mu dad... I always wondered why & As I got older I finally heard the words.. If you've never heard it you should check it out..HAHA

What's up welcome back to Soul Sundays! Today's selection is The Winston's with "Color him Father"
The Winstons were a 1960s funk and soul music group, based in Washington, D.C.. They are known for their 1969 recording of an EP featuring a song entitled "Color Him Father". Which was written for their step-father who stepped up to the plate and helped their mother raise them.
The "Color Him Father" record sold over one million copies, and received a gold record awarded by the Recording Industry Association of America on 24 July 1969.
This song is dedicated to My Husband who is an amazing Daddy to our children.. I always knew he would be a great father. He always puts them first & works so hard everyday to offer them the best in life! They adore him & they are blessed to have a daddy like him. This is also for all the fathers who never walked out on their children and to the Step fathers out there who have stepped up to raise someone's else's child. I respect you men. Happy fathers Day & thank you for being there for your children.... Thanks for "Tooning" In

What's up welcome back to Soul Sundays!! Today's artist is "Desciples of Soul" with only a couple of hits they made "Together" which is a Re-make & My favorite "Peek-a-Boo". I did my research & couldn't find too much on this group. A group like this should have been more recognized. When my husband & I hear peek-a-boo it puts a smile on our face and takes us back to the old days when we first met. That's what I love about oldies. Hope you enjoy this selection!
Thanks for "Tooning" In!
