The winner is comment #68: Jackie

I’ve always been a big fan of Vanessa William’s recording career and was thrilled to hear that she was releasing a brand new CD, The Real Thing.


This is Vanessa Williams’ Concord Records debut and her first album in more than four years. In her own words, The Real Thing is “a potpourri of breezy Latin rhythms, sultry jazz standards and dreamy pop sketches,” and delves into the sophisticated pop and R&B that have been the hallmark of her dynamic musical career. Vanessa has garnered a total of 16 Grammy nominations and sold millions of albums throughout her musical career.


The Real Thing was a real hit with me. It’s something I can listen to during a romantic evening, when I need a little quiet time, or on a lazy afternoon. Her jazzy and sometimes big band sound makes her new recordings so easy to listen to and I found myself easily getting lost in the rhytmns. After listening to this CD, I just couldn’t help but be in a better mood. It had a calming effect on me and I will definitely be adding this compilation to my iPod to take to the hospital for my delivery.

    I have been a fan of hers since the “Save the Best for Last” days. I am so proud of her. She didn’t let a (so-called) scandal get in the way of her dreams!!!! Vanessa is talented and beautiful inside and out.
