What a Feelin' [Geffen, 1983]
I know voice lessons are a must if you want to get to the Oscars, and believe me, I prefer this woman to most of her white exemplars. But I wish she'd gotten her training in church rather than at Performing Arts. And wouldn't suggest that a creative writing teacher couldn't possibly hurt. C+
