The Song Is You  (Shanachie)
by Jennifer Holliday

FOR FANS OF: Gladys Knight, Etta James, Chaka Khan
Rating: 3 Stars

The original “Dreamgirl” went on to an extraordinary career in gospel music and continues to record a variety of styles to this day. The Song Is You blends pop, jazz and R&B standards with a pair of inspirational originals. While none match the sky-high range of her “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” heyday, all are nonetheless tastefully delivered and arranged.
