First Impressions: Diana King's Tribute To The King

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

For those who admire a phenomenal voice and who haven't been aware of Diana King's existence, be forewarned...you're about to get schooled. Miss King is best known for her 1995 track, "Shy Guy" which grew to fame after being on the Bad Boys movie soundtrack. King's blend of Reggae beats with her smooth R&B vocal tone captivated listeners and it has made me a fan for awhile now. Diana has been flying under the radar for some time, but it's quite nice to know that she's still keep on keepin' with her talent. On her Twitter, the Reggae/Soul artist announced that she has recorded a new track and that it's dedicated to none other than the late, Michael Jackson. "MI-CHA-EL (Ode To MJ)" has been, so far, the best tribute piece that has graced my ears. It's sincere and it's catchy, and since it is laced with King's glorious vocal range, it's top-notch. The lyrics are quite touching, as Diana coos about missing Michael and his music, over a lush mid-tempo production. Just perfect. You can visit Diana's official page and download the track for free after you listen to the audio below, and while you're there, check out some other great Diana tracks if you haven't had her locked on your radar by now. A real treat for all.
