The Review: Georgia Anne Muldrow Give Owed To Mama Rickie

After being away from home after a while, you return back to the town in which you called home.  You’ve experience life much different than when you grew up.  You have seen different things, been through trials, had some victories and made and broken a few relationships along the way.  It was a long drive, which gave you time to reflect on your many experiences and some of the lessons you have learned along the way.  You begin to remember some of the things your mother, aunts, uncles, grandmother and others have told you about that it took you going through to realize.  Thinking back if you have known then what you have gone through now, maybe you would have listened and taken that advice.  You pull up to that home and park in the same spot you did when you were in high school, just on the side so you never got blocked in.  You knew you would leave home and never come back… Now you have a deeper appreciation of what home made you into.

David Peaston shined in an era of music filled with powerful and dynamic vocalists, such as Peabo Bryson, Howard Hewett, Whitney Houston, Freddie Jackson, Alexander O’Neal, James Ingram and others… It was almost customary for singers like David and Phil Perry to bring a powerful presence to singing in that time. His amazing strong and & powerful high register maybe didn’t receive the attention that it should because it was a common voice in that time.
