Aneessa kicked off her stateside debut with a winning cover of Soul II Soul’s 1989 anthem, “Back to Life,” which has cracked the Top 10 of Billboard Magazine’s “Smooth Jazz” chart. In a similar thematic vein is Aneessa’s cover of Madonna’s “Miles Away” which she relates to so deeply for its message of a long-distance relationship. Aneessa and Michael wrote “Just to Be with You” about their relationship when love was blooming yet they were so far away from each other, leading to her coming to visit…and never return home.
Most interesting is the song “Satisfied” which, ironically, was written by Michael and his first wife, Brenda. Their daughter Tiffany remembered the unreleased song and suggested it as perfect for Aneessa to sing. Real love, maturity, and acceptance don’t get any deeper than that.
