Havmercy! Kelly Price & Stokley Williams: 2 Powerhouses, 1 Song!

As we look toward a new week, it is absolutely wonderful to kick it off with a piece of music that totally excites me!  Two of my favorite songbirds, Kelly Price and Stokley Williams teamed up on a song entitled, Not My Daddy that will be part of Kelly’s eagerly anticipated forthcoming release, Kelly. I owe an enormous amount of gratitude to Singersroom for pointing the spotlight on this cut.

This pairing is really special to me because I became completely enamored with Kelly Price, vocally a few years ago.  She had a live taping of what was to be released on dvd for her album, This Is Who I Am at Zion Cathedral C.O.G.I.C. in Freeport, NY (Long Island).  Watching Kelly perform live, alongside Richard Smallwood, Donnie McClurkin, Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Joe Ligon was phenomenal.  Throughout the evening, Kelly ministered between songs, shared her testimony, changed outfits and was simply breathtaking. In the audience were Ron Grant, Melonie Daniels, James Hall and Chrisette Michele.  Unfortunately, the dvd was never released.

Mint Condition, hands down is the best band in existence today.  As the lead vocalist of the band, Stokley Williams stands out, as most leads do, but there’s more to him than just his vocal contributions.  His stage presence, random instrument solos and scat acrobatics are always filled with unparalleled vigor that are guaranteed to draw the crowd.  Anyone who knows me fully understands that Mint Condition will forever hold a special place in my heart.  When they perform in New York, if it can be prevented, I try not to miss a show.

Check out Not My Daddy (and let me know what you think):
