Just received verbal commitment from R&B singer Robin S to record a song I co-wrote a couple months ago with Wanola Jackson and Nina Spencer called "Is It Real?". Robin S. is an American singer-songwriter, who scored success in the 1990s with such hit singles as "Show Me Love" and "Luv 4 Luv". She has had three number ones on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. Her song "Show Me Love" is what current R&B artist Jason Darulo sampled to base his smash hit "Don't Wanna Go Home" off of.
"Show Me Love" is considered one of the top House Music songs of all time in the United Kingdom!!!
As for my upcoming CD that you have helped to fund, everything is going really well. The studio musicians are truly gifted!
In a couple weeks we will be sending 3 of the songs down to composer/arranger/musician Jonathon Yudkin to add strings. Jonathon has played on all of the top Country artists Cd's....from Rascall Flats to Keith Urban!
"Sara's Hair" is going to have a string quartet...which I can't wait to hear! "Average Joe" and "My Baby Girl" will most likey have Cello & Violin or Viola. I'm a sucker for strings...so this will be the thrill of a lifetime for me.
As for the funding...we only have $2,600 more to raise to fully fund the project. Those of you who have facebook pages, I hope you will consider copying and posting the letter below. We have raised over $1,500 doing this.
Thanks Again for your love and support. We are almost there!
I am trying to help a friend of mine, singer/songwriter Sol Knopf. Over the last year.... several of the top country artists in the world have been considering recording Sol's songs. Artists like Leeann Rimes, John Michael Montgomery, Lonestar, Ronnie Milsap and many others.
Sol is about to record a new CD filled with these songs that are garnering so much interest. Grammy Nominated produ...cer Jim Salamone has agreed to produce the project. Jim has worked with top artists like Bon Jovi, Vanessa Williams, Teddy Pendergrass and he uses some of the top studio musicians in the recording industry.
I hope you will consider pre-purchasing the CD or donating like I did. Sol is so close. Just click on the www.gofundme.com/solknopf
link to watch a video and find out more! So far we've raised over $5,000 to help ....but he still needs to raise another $2,800 to make this happen.
Donations can be made in any increment: $1....$5....$50... whatever you can afford would be a huge help.
Thank you so much!
