Suddenly It's Magic by Vesta Williams Ooh ... I always thought I would be strong If I made it through the pain Well, I've been in and out of love And it all hurts just the same, oh yeah Love can really change your life There's somethin' magic in my world tonight ... Chorus: I feel, so free, it's like a fantasy Havin' you next to me Suddenly it's magic One look, one touch Words just won't say enough When you fall in love Suddenly it's magic ... I'm not afraid of letting go I've got to find what's right for me I'm not afraid to stand alone If that's the way it has to be After all that I've been through There's magic when I'm here with you ... (Repeat Chorus) Bridge: We can dream our dreams forever When I'm here with you, baby Heaven's a heartbeat away Now that we're together Love can last forever There's magic in my life With you, you, oh yeah ... Adlib: One look, one touch Words just don't say enough When you fall in love Suddenly it's magic ... Suddeny it's magic ... (Repeat Chorus) Vesta Williams Biography Though diminutive, the singer now simply known as Vesta, possesses one of the biggest and brassiest voices in R&B and Contemporary Jazz. Vesta's story begins in Coshocton, Ohio (about 40 miles east of Columbus), where she was born in 1963, and she began to distinguish herself as an entertainer at an early age. As the daughter of a radio disc jockey, a young Vesta moved with her family to the Los Angeles area during the mid 1960s, and with her Sisters, appeared on the TV show 'Jack & Jill', as 'The Williams Sisters'. During her high school years, Vesta continued to sing and experimented with comedy routines. After she graduated from high school in 1970, Vesta continued to sing in addition to working full time, and she eventually moved back to Ohio in 1977. Upon returning to her home state, Vesta continued to sing with her cousin's group, Wild Honey. Vesta's Cousin, the late Ron Townsend, was a former member of the 60's & 70's supergroup '5th Dimension', and she soon gained more experience and invaluable exposure during the mid 70's. Vesta's tenure with Wild Honey, made it possible to persue a solo career, and with her passion now her profession, she became one of the industry's most sought-after studio singers. Before Vesta's debut as a solo recording artist, she paid her dues singing commercial jingles for Mcdonald's, Diet Coke, Honda and Revlon Cosmetics among others. This 'commercial recognition' eventually lead to important session work for Vesta throughout the years, where she would eventually provide background vocals for Anita Baker ('Rapture'), Jermaine Jackson ('Precious Moments'), Jeffrey Osborne ('Emotional'), Stephanie Mills ('If I Were Your Woman'), Gladys Knight ('Good Woman'), and Sting ('Nothing Like The Sun') among many others! This exposure for Vesta also prompted Chaka Khan to hire her as a vocalist during the early 1980's. It's been rumored that Vesta recorded background vocals for Chaka, but they've only worked together during live concerts. Chaka Khan is notorious for recording her own backgrounds, and since Vesta's fire was a close match, it was a no brainer to have Williams on tour. After touring with Chaka during the early 1980's, Vesta met producer David Crawford through Joe Sample (pianist of the Jazz Crusaders), for whom she'd recorded the original vocals for 'The Survivor' in 1984. For some reason, Vesta's vocals were replaced with Phyllis Hyman's, and it was probably because MCA wanted to attach an established name with Sample's 'Oasis' album (1985).

I made this just now, this is a song by Stevie Wonder. The picture of the sky is a photo I took myself the day I went to the 02 Arena to see Michaels things, such as his clothing, some belongings etc. :) (I feel a bit bad that I went, if it's a cash in... but I hope he wouldn't mind since many fans enjoyed it and it gave them great comfort and a feeling of his spirit somehow). Anyway, this isn't that great, but the song reminded me of Michael, alot of songs do ;)

"Mister Magic" was the successful single and title track from the fifth album of one of jazz music's more well-known figures. Grover Washington, Jr. (December 12, 1943 -- December 17, 1999) was an American jazz-funk / soul-jazz saxophonist. Along with George Benson, John Klemmer, David Sanborn, Bob James, Chuck Mangione, Herb Alpert, and Spyro Gyra, he is considered by many to be one of the founders of the smooth jazz genre. He wrote some of his material and later became an arranger and producer. Washington was born in Buffalo, New York on December 12, 1943. His mother was a church chorister, and his father was a collector of old jazz gramophone records and a saxophonist as well, so music was everywhere in the home. He grew up with the great jazzmen and big band leaders like Benny Goodman, Fletcher Henderson, and others like them. At the age of 8, with the desire for him to be more than he could be, Grover Sr. gave Jr. a saxophone. He practiced and would sneak into clubs to see famous Buffalo blues musicians. Washington left Buffalo and played with a Midwest group called the Four Clefs. He was drafted into the U.S. Army shortly thereafter, but this was to be to his advantage, as he met drummer Billy Cobham there. Cobham, a mainstay in New York City, introduced Washington to many New York musicians. After leaving the Army, Washington freelanced his talents around New York City, eventually landing in Philadelphia in 1967. In 1970 and 1971, he appeared on Leon Spencer's first two albums on Prestige Records, together with Idris Muhammad and Melvin Sparks. Washington's big break came at the expense of another artist. Alto sax man Hank Crawford was unable to make a recording date with Creed Taylor's Kudu Records, and Washington took his place, even though he was a backup. This led to his first solo album, "Inner City Blues". He was talented and displayed heart and soul with soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxophones. Refreshing for his time, he made headway into the jazz mainstream. His fifth album, 1974's "Mister Magic", was a commercial success, and introduced guitarist Eric Gale as a near-permanent member in Washington's arsenal. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, Washington made some of the genre's most memorable hits, including "Mr. Magic" and "Black Frost. In addition, he performed very frequently with other artists, including Bill Withers on "Just The Two Of Us" (still in regular rotation on radio today), Patti LaBelle on "The Best Is Yet To Come" and Phyllis Hyman on "A Sacred Kind Of Love". He is also remembered for his take on the Dave Brubeck classic "Take Five", and for his 1996 version of "Soulful Strut". On December 17, 1999, while waiting in the green room after taping four songs for "The Saturday Early Show" at CBS Studios in New York City, Washington collapsed. He was taken to St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at about 7:30 p.m. He was 56 years old. His doctors determined that he had suffered a massive heart attack.
