Rhythm and Blues, or simply R&B, has been around for over seventy years now. Growing up all we knew was R&B. I was about six or seven and did not know much about music, and honestly I don’t think I cared much. I just kind of did what other girls did, and that was to [Read more]

What did you say you were famous for?

What did you say you were famous for?

When someone is famous we firstly think talent, “what are you good at?” You could be the world’s fastest rapper or even a really awesome singer like rising star Zahara, who I must say everyone would like to know more about.
