Real R&B Heats Up The Grammy® Awards
Classic R&B Vocalists Ann Nesby and Calvin Richardson box with Beyonce as the Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance category moves from obscurity to the spotlight
Beyonce jumps into the Traditional R&B Ring with a rendition of “At Last” from her appearance as Blues singer Etta James in the movie Cadillac Records. While fans of Bey will cheer if “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” gets the statue that Kanye West and others feel she rightly deserves – it’s her bout with artists known for their Traditional R&B sound that will indicate for many if she’s got true stamina in the ring.
Ann Nesby, who won two Grammy® Awards with Sounds of Blackness, returns to the ring as a Nominee with a performance of “Sow Love” from her Inspirational CD The Lula Lee Project(It’s Time Child / Tyscott). Nesby, a chart topping R&B and Gospel powerhouse who appeared alongside Beyonce in the film The Fighting Temptations, has been nominated six times during her solo career including a duet with Al Green.
Calvin Richardson – The Soul Prince is having a banner year with his tribute to Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame legend Bobby Womack Facts of Life; The Soul of Bobby Womack (Numo/Shanachie)
