Episode 11 – Chris Williams

*****I DO NOT OWN THE RIGHTS TO ANY MUSIC PLAYED IN THIS EPISODE*****

What is the difference between R&B and soul? Is it more than just a genre of music? To some, soul music represents a "grown up" version of R&B, for example, the difference between R.Kelly and D'Angelo, Trey Songs and Musiq, Beyonce and Jill Scott, Julius Erving and Michael Jordan (yes, I went there)etc. For others, it's a way of life, deeper than music, deeper than even lyrics. It represents a movement(Say It Loud!!), a struggle(Keep On Pushing) and even a sign of hope (Someday, We'll All Be Free) It's that overwhelming feeling that occurs when Aretha sings, or when Prince(yes, Prince is soul)plays the guitar solo in Purple Rain. Soul is the feeling we all felt on April 4, 1984, when Marvin left us, and the reminiscent feeling of Little Michael Jackson. Soul is the purest form of Gospel, without being gospel. It's honest, raw, funny, sad, deep and sometimes intoxicating. Ironically, the most valid description of Chris Williams.

Random Thoughts of Reign

LoveReigns

Random Thoughts of Reign is the head music of writer, poet, author, emcee and curator, Taryn “LoveReigns “ Wharwood. It is the audacity of tough conversation inspired by Conversations with James Baldwin and Nikki Giovanni. The conversations were introspective, thought provoking and heart warming in that it truly touched my soul to hear and watch the volley of brilliance and passion. The openness and vulnerability of “my generation” and “your generation” proclamations paved way to one thought: I have met many brilliant souls. I want to talk to them.
