    So Very Hard to Go - Crooner Lenny Williams

    in Lifestyle

    The ultimate soul crooner, Oakland, California native Lenny Williams possesses one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary music.  With his rich, passionate vocal style, he is rightfully regarded as one of R & B's most influential soul men.  Williams began his musical career making records that have subsequently become R & B and Pop classics, tunes like the mega-hit "Cause I Love You" (recorded on his solo album) and "So Very Hard To Go," which he recorded as the lead singer for Tower of Power.  Lenny Williams' style has transcended into the new millennium, influencing many of today's newest R & B and Pop vocalists.

    Lenny Williams Live

    in Music

     As with many of secular music's greatest singers they often have a deeply religious background. Usually it's the disco divas that are born in the church musically, every now and then a male artist
    will emerge from the church to have a profound impact on secular music, Leonard Charles Williams is one of those.
        Born in Little Rock Arkansas on February 6th, 1945 he escaped the racially charged south at the age of one to be brought up in the diverse Oakland, California area. Lenny's uncle was Bishop
    Charles Harrison Mason, founder of the Church of God in Christ (America's leading black Pentecostal church), so naturally church was an important part of his life from the beginning. In fact Williams
    studied to become a minister while also singing in the church choir.
        Upon graduation from high school Lenny took on a series of odd jobs while at the same time discovering the wonderful world of secular music, particularly the emerging Motown sound. Between
    1963 and 1968 he worked his odd jobs and honed his singing talent by entering a series of local talent contests, often winning them. In 1968 local Berkley record company Fantasy Records offered him
    a contract. Fantasy was on the cusp of success with Creedence Clearwater Revival and Lenny's singles, "Lisa's Gone" and "Feelin' Blue," did not have the benefit of proper promotion and only
    achieved marginal regional success.
