                                glad to see they are still sounding good but miss the good old days with JT, Michael Ray, Spike, Claydes and Clifford Adams. Theres not even a trumpet player there even though you hear it so must be syncing to a prerecorded track

                                            Singing great just doesn't cut it anymore. Each of these singers has to do something to stand out. I suggest they tattoo their faces and dress like they're doing laundry. It's not my thing, but people seem to eat that kind of thing up.

I just cannot ignore the song writing talent and musicianship of Alejandro. Uche is just a great performer! But to make it as an artist, he NEEDS original great songs like Bruno Mars. If he can make great songs like Bruno Mars and his great swag. He could be huge!
