    Real Life Real Faith welcomes R&B Legend, Christopher Williams

    in Entertainment

    Contemporary soul singer Christopher Williams was born and raised in the Bronx, New York. The nephew of jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald decided to become a singer after sitting with his aunt Ella, Frank Sinatra and Count Basie after a show. With talent in his genes and the desire to be a great recording artist, Christopher Williams emerged during the late 1980s, as a recording artist for Geffen Records. He released his debut album, entitled “Adventures in Paradise”, in 1989. The singles “Talk To Myself” and “Promises, Promises” reached the R&B Top 10 charts, and Christopher’s soulful, powerful voice made him stand out among his peers. In 1991, he landed his first acting role portraying Kareem Akbar, appearing alongside Wesley Snipes and Ice-T in the pop culture movie hit, New Jack City. His single from the soundtrack of the same name, “Dreamin’” turned gold and became a #1 single on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks charts. His 1992 Uptown Records album “Changes” featured the hits “All I See”, "Every Little Thing" and "Come Go with Me." The album peaked at sixty-three on the U.S. Billboard 200 and reached the twelfth spot on the R&B Albums chart. In 1995 the album “Changes” was followed up by “Not a Perfect Man” on Giant Records. This album brought a new direction for Williams; his first album as sole Executive Producer uses elements of reggae, R&B, hip-hop and country. In 2001, after a six year hiatus the album “Real Men Do” was released on the indie label Renegade, receiving rave reviews from Ebony Magazine and many other notable publications.

    This month Debi and Elissa are sharing some ideas on Summer Survival with preschoolers.  Our "no fail idea" - in our opinion - is preparation and we will give suggestions on how to put together a Summer Survival Bag that is kept in the car ready for stops in a park or unplanned long waits in a doctor’s office. No need to purchase new apps or games - just a little creative thinking on your part.  This Productive Play will focus on ways to use the time in the car going to and from activities, going on long car trips, or waiting for a sibling to finish up a soccer practice as fun learning opportunities.

    Debi Dutton and Elissa Sungar are co-founders of If Not You Who.org - a free website geared to make sure your child is ready for kindergarten. With over 300 activities for making your playtime productive, these two educators make learning time with your kids playful.
