Mangaliso Asi returns with a powerful track and set of visuals that given the current climate is quite appropriate and i’m sure many can relate. The production on the track for me is pretty stunning. The horns and backing vocals heighten the emotions expressed on the track. Strong thoughts, Strong Lyrics strong track, a welcome return.
The wonderful tones of the Cherri Prince mixed with gorgeous deep dark tones of a grand piano makes a match made in heaven. Throw in a Little Dragon penned song and you have even more ecstasy. This sounds as classy as it looks and is dripping in quality. Cherri Prince is definitely improving her standards and pushing the bar higher. Keep your eyes on her.

I had pleasure and pain watching The Voice on Saturday night as their were mixed fortunes for Music is Remedy favourites Chris Royal and Cherri Prince. Chris went through despite having to find a way to make his sweet soulful sounds standout over a rocky version of Adele’s “Rolling in The Deep”. That should have (and in my opinion did) play into his opponent’s hands who was far more comfortable with the genre choice. However Ricky kept faith in Chris’ quality vocal (and also probably his passion and desire) to send him through.
Cherri Prince on the other hand was not as fortunate in her jazz scatt off. Despite looking and sounding elegant and stunning on stage it was deemed not enough. Couldn’t help thinking Will decided to bet on the potential of youth over Cherri’s more polished and experienced vocal. Disappointing to say the least.
I do however have to go back to the standout performance of the night and for my reckoning the best i’ve seen on a reality music show. The Iesher Haughton and Femi Santiago battle was just amazing. Taking the wonderful classic “Listen To Your Heart” they did the great Dianna Ross and Marvin Gaye justice with two unbelievable vocal performances. Iesher just has this effortlessness about her. Its frightening to think what standard she will reach with more training and experience. Whilst Femi has just got it! Can’t say anything more then that. Thankfully both have advanced to the next round with Femi being saved so we will have at least one more Saturday night with these two blessing our ears with their amazing vocals. I have to thank the BBC and the Voice. Say what you want about the format but on Saturday night for 2 minutes 19 seconds the nation was exposed to the brilliance that can be found in this country.
Enjoy Enjoy Enjoy this is glorious!
A small snippet of one of this years Voice stars Cherri Prince doing what she loves singing some jazz at circuit night Ruby Sings @ Ronnie Scotts. As always Cherri’s voice sounds just delicious pure class. Cherri will have her battle performance on the BBC this weekend as part of Team Will!!! Here’s hoping class prevails and she makes it through! Will be rooting for ya Cherri!
Over all the years we’ve been running events and listening to new artists few caught me as much Cherri Prince. Effortless style and class in her vocal every time she gets behind the microphone. Her mesh of Hip Hop Soul Jazz always helped her create her own niche and to help her stand out. As well as delivering on the stage and in the booth her visuals have always been on point too. She hasn’t had all the success that i feel she deserves which is why it was so good seeing her close the show on my television on Saturday night on the voice earning the final spot on Will.I.Am’s team.
He is the perfect judge for her and i’m sure he’ll be able to coax even more quality out of her and also give her some sound advice and guidance in moving forward in her career. Regardless of how far she goes in the competition i’m confident that’ll her talent will shine. All the best Cherri you deserve every success will be rooting for ya!
