Roberta Flack was nominated for 14 Grammy Awards and won 5 of them. She also was the winner of the American Music Award. She is a prolific pianist and song writer. The music she created with the incomparable Donny Hathaway are all pieces of art. We take some time on this show to look back and listen to some of the music of this living legend.

We love the sleek and intelligent, talented queen Elisabeth Withers and thusly, we invited her back to the show. Now, we did speak with her regarding her Tony nomination for her outstanding portrayal of Shug Avery on Broadway's "Color Purple".  However, we didn't go deep enough into the R&B music. She has some awesome music with deep meanings and some just out and out sexy R&B. Looking forward to chatting with her again!
