Quincy Jones’ “Secret Garden” Ft. James Ingram, Al B. Sure, Barry White, and El DeBarge is by far the sexiest grown folk song in the history of R&B. Even as a teen, I became impressed by the sensuousness and maturity of “Secret Garden”…something I and my peers didn’t hear in music that we typically listened to in the early nineties. My love for sexy R&B love songs developed even more when I heard this song for the first time.

This is a clip of their live performance at the 1991 Soul Train Awards and I must say…that audience experienced epicness seeing these men live on stage. Rest in Peace to my man, Barry White. That dude’s voice was scary sexy!


I am so excited to see this year’s Soul Train Awards which has already been taped and will air November 29th. From Erykah Badu as host to the much-deserved anticipated tribute for Babyface, I am overwhelmed with excitement. Not only do I look forward to the performances and the artists, but judging from the pics circulating, I have fallen in love with the fashions. These artists have showed off and showed OUT on the red carpet! The photos I’m sharing are those who rocked my favorite gowns, suits, etc.
