I love when I turn on the radio the first thing I hear is something that I’ve never heard before that I instantly fall in love with. That happened to me this week and all of a sudden I may just have a new favorite band. The biggest surprise…it’s not a country band! Who knew?
My Pick of the Week: Kings of Leon
Their music is great. His voice is full and strong with a hint of rasp and a lot of heart. Apparently they’ve been around for a little while and I’m sorry that I’m only just hearing of them. Guess I should switch the station more often.
Recommended Album: Only By the Night
My Favorite Song: Use Somebody
SIS Bren says... As you know, I was in Indiana last week. What you may not know is that I drove there. 17 grueling hours of driving! EACH WAY! So before I left, I went on to my computer and pulled up my collection of songs and made some driving CDs. I had a pretty good mix of artists, but as I played the CDs I couldn't wait to get to the tracks of the man who I think is the greatest singer of all time!
My pick of the week: Stevie Wonder
I love everything this man sings. He amazes me with his soul and incredible voice. Just when you think he can't possibly sing any higher, up he goes, stretching his vocal chords and hitting unbelievable notes. His music is genious, his lyrics are catchy. Love him, love him, love him!
Favorite songs: I Wish, Saturn, Living for the City, Overjoyed, Superstition.....and many, many more.

Charisma. If a singer/musician has this than he/she is blessed. There are a lot of talented musical artists, but charisma will launch you above and beyond. To this day there is one artist who moves me like no other… and I do believe, although I adore his voice and dance moves, it is mostly because of his undeniable, unexplainable, charisma.
My pick of the week: Elvis Presley
Love his voice, his music, but folks, you have to see this man in action. Thus I’m recommending, not an album, but a musical dvd. Elvis at his best, his most sexy, his most inspired. Admittedly, some of the production numbers are, um, weird. But the live, on stage performances... Elvis in black leather... priceless. Watch, experience, and melt.
Recommended Album: Elvis'68 Comeback Special
My Favorite Song: Heartbreak Hotel
