My Diva’s

Being from the old school of sultry singers, real band players and misty concerts, I absolutely loved the sound and charisma of Lisa Stansfield and Sade.

Lisa Stansfield

Born: April 11, 1966

English vocalist Lisa Stansfield was the lead singer of the group the Blue Zone and featured on Coldcut’s “People Hold On” in 1989. She zoomed into the spotlight with Affection in 1990. The album went platinum and earned her a number three pop and number one R&B single with “All Around the World.” Affection and its follow-up, Real Love, were deeply influenced by the ’70s disco sound of Barry White, from arrangements to mood and even Stansfield’s own technique. After a long hiatus, she returned with a self-titled effort in 1997. The 1 Remixes EP followed a year later.

Sade

Helen Folasade Adu (or Sade) was born in 1959, in Ibadan, Nigeria but spent her childhood in Colchester, Essex Sade. She read a good deal, developed an interest in fashion, acquired a taste for dancing and listened with great interesr to soul artists like Curtis Mayfield, Donny Hathaway, and Marvin Gaye.

Six years after the release of 1994’s multi-platinum Best of Sade, a collection of her best songs, the vocalist returns with her band to release Lovers Rock. The first album to be produced solely by the band itself, it showcases Sade’s sultry songwriting skills and soulful, jazz-inflected voice.

As one of the few singers to grace the cover of Time, Sade’s talent and unique style have made her one of music history’s pop icons — while her elegant beauty and low-key life have contributed to her mystique.
