Legendary singer/songwriter Charlie Wilson keeps the blessings coming with the visual for the lead single from his No. 1 album “In It To Win It”, “I’m Blessed.” Filmed during his tour to support the album, the clip finds Wilson explaining the inspiration behind the song, and the simple honor of  knowing that he’s blessed for many reasons, his fans among them. During short interview clips, fans of varying ages share their own blessings and admiration for Wilson. The clip also includes appearances by Martin Lawrence, Johnny Gill, Jim Brown, Trombone Shorty and T.I, who is also featured on the song. Wilson stated during an interview with People Magazine that he wanted to share his blessings with others. He added that his intention was to capture one of his biggest blessings, his fans, and to share his music and story with them. He wanted to give them an opportunity to share their blessings on camera. He went on to share with the magazine  his support for singer/songwriter/dancer Bruno Mars, who was inspired by Uncle Charlie by recounting a conversation the two had where Mars shared his  goals as a performer with the R&B veteran. As an artist whose career spans several decades, Wilson concluded that he’s hopeful for the genre that he made a name for himself in. “In It To Win It” proves without a doubt that artists of Wilson’s caliber can survive and thrive in the music industry. Singer Deborah Cox’s powerful voice has been compared to the late Whitney Houston; the two collaborated on the single “Same Script, Different Cast” and Cox provided the vocals for the Lifetime film “Whitney.” She’s also touring as Rachel Marron in the musical version  of the film “The Bodyguard.” On March 31, Cox released the Whitney Houston cover album “I Will Always Love You”.  Cox covered such Houston classics as “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”, “I Have Nothing” and “The Greatest Love Of All.” Cox told EurWeb’s Michael Coleman that the courage to do the songs came from being compared to Houston throughout her career. She finally decided to stop fighting it. Many are aware of what Houston means to her. There are many similarities in tonality and nuances. She wanted to capture the essence of Whitney Houston with the album. Cox accomplished her mission. Rapper Lil Yachty has released the singles “Harley” and “”Peek A Boo”, the latter of which features Migos. The songs find the Atlanta native at his typical, whimsical best, with singsongy hooks and rapid fire verses over tight, bass heavy production These are his first solo singles since his feature on Kyle’s “iSpy”, which shot up the Billboard Hot 100 chart. I think it’s safe to say that fans haven’t heard the last of Yachty.
