Lalah Hathaway: Forever, For Always, For Love is No 1 Urban AC single in The U.S.A.
"Forever, For Always, For Love," Lalah Hathaway's No 1 Urban AC single from her latest album "Outrun The Sky" (see here).
Lalah Hathaway, the daughter of late, great Soul legend Donny Hathaway, has had critics rhapsodizing over her talents ever since her self-titled 1990 debut disc. AgU's "Outrun The Sky," Lalah's third solo effort, was released in September '04 in a joint venture with Mesa Bluemoon and distributed through Universal Distribution.
The Dallas Morning News' Lorrie Irby wrote that the album, "not only showcases Lalah's unique gifts, but also the fact that his (Donny's) legacy remains in capable hands." Ebony Magazine commented, "Effortlessly, she pulls listeners into her universe with rich vocals, lush lyrics and full-bodied rhythms."
Lalah Hathaway's stirring cover of the Luther Vandross classic "Forever, For Always, For Love" beautifully displays her warm, confident and sophisticated delivery. It marks Lalah Hathaway's first No 1 single, and in addition to appearing on "Outrun The Sky," it's featured on "Forever, For Always, For Luther," an all-star tribute compilation to the ailing R&B icon Luther Vandross (see here).
Also making waves for AgU Music Group is legendary 7X-Grammy-winning vocalist Chaka Khan's new tour de force "Classikhan," (see here) featuring the diva performing twelve timeless standards - plus her original new composition "I Believe" - backed by the London Symphony Orchestra. The ambitious and sublimely elegant album has been drawing rave reviews, and the current single, Chaka's take on the '60s gem "To Sir With Love," is gaining in spins at MOR and Jazz radio nationwide.
The combination of Chaka Khan's octave-spanning range, symphonic accompaniment and a diverse selection of classics of the popular songbook is a match made in musical heaven, as evidenced on powerhouse tracks including "Stormy Weather," "Crazy," "Round Midnight," and the 007 favorite "Diamonds Are Forever." Released in late 2004 on AgU in association with Sanctuary Music Group and Sony-BMG distribution, "Classikhan" will be supported by a Spring 2005 tour presenting Khan in concert with the London Symphony Orchestra.
