One of the recent big successes on cable and satellite TV has been ‘BRANDY & RAY J: A FAMILY BUSINESS’. The reality show follows the ups and downs of the NORWOOD FAMILY – and more specifically the family’s famous daughter, BRANDY. BRANDY, of course, was one of the first of the new wave of modern soul/R&B divas and since her debut back in the 90s she’s continued to enjoy huge success.
Her brother, RAY J has enjoyed charts runs too while mum and dad – WILLIE AND SONJA NORWOOD – are respected performers and entrepreneurs in their own right; WILLIE is an acclaimed gospel singer and in-demand vocal coach, while SONJA is a music business/management hot shot. The VH 1 TV show offers a regular snapshot of NORWOOD family life and the show’s success has prompted Rhino Records to release a tie-in album – ‘A Family Business’. The tunes on the eleven tracker are delivered by different combinations of the family and the lovely ballad ‘Talk To Me’ (featuring BRANDY, RAY and WILLIE) has been chosen as the lead single.
The album is released on Rhino Records on June 13th… but in the meantime we at www.soulandjazzandfunk.com have five copies of the album to give away.
