In 1970 recording artist Vicki Anderson, known for her lead female vocal position with the James Brown Revue sent a "Message to the Soul Sisters," a female anthem that present day singer/song writer Teedra Moses thought would be the perfect addition to lend her vocals for a remake, soon to be heard on the limited edition Soulfinger Production project called ‘Life, Love & Passion,’ which according to ThisisRnB on Monday March 10, will be highlights and re-recorded B-sides of lesser known soul music gems from the late ’60s to mid ’70s.
Soulfinger is a New York based production team who have been working on a very special album to help bring back the "romantic feeling of those physical music products, and in a extremely unique, luxurious and limited edition collectors item."
Describing the album as a "soul throwback record," reminiscent of the classic sound of the Motown era, and what's missing in present day music, Soulfinger spokesperson says there has been a devaluation of music and the feeling that it once gave. Someone had to bring it back. Therefore, in an effort to bring life back to music Soulfinger has gathered a team of soulful music artist that include names like, Leela James, Jaguar Wright, Syleena Johnson, Kathy Sledge, Martin Luther, Anthony David and many more.
This is RnB reports that to produce and release this amazing project, Soulfinger has started a campaign on Kickstarter to help raise the necessary funds to create the luxury packaging for this super-limited, hand-numbered collector’s item, which will not be released in stores or on any digital platforms. Every unit will be uniquely identified by a serial number.
Another voice set to provide a sistah's anthem on the limited edition luxury project is Teedra Moses, The Lioness. Stating how she is a huge fan of the late James Brown, she chose to contribute the tune of Vicki Anderson and Brown, "A Message to the Soul Sister." R&B Diva Syleena Johnson adds her soulful flavor to Diana Ross' "Now That There's You" and the powerhouse vocals of Jaguar Wright adds her rendition of "I Just Wanna Be There."
