I was told I was growing in a womb full of influence. The whole time my mom, Sandra Reaves-Phillips, best known as her portrayal of Ms. Powers in the film :Lean On Me”, was pregnant, she was in the studio recording. So of course I’d come out with a voice. I was able to develop it further with Andre Frierson, Carl Maultsby and Thom Bridwell. The pianist is The wonderful Danny Holgate.
