I didn't know Natalie Cole and Peabo Bryson covered that song. I know the original and Phyllis Hyman's version, but it's the first time I've heard this one. I dig it.

And of course you can create another thread for 70's songs, Peggy.

Every time I hear that Stevie Wonder song "Visions" it makes me think of this song:

Ginuwine - "I'll Do Anything/I'm Sorry"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6yUHAzSNks

Both awesome songs. Timbaland is a genius behind dem boards!

Most definitely. Ms. Hyman is truly an example of unsung. So talented. So versatile. So underappreciated, IMHO.

"Remember Who You Are" by Norman Connors featuring Phyllis Hyman, 1992

(Angie Bofill is another favorite. Like Phyllis, so great in concert!)
