I don’t know if you watch America’s Got Talent with Nick Cannon, but on watching it last week, I was very impressed by a young 12 year brat that did a rendition of I’d Rather Go Blind.  His name is Quantavius Johnson and he’s from Franklin Tennessee.  The good thing about the little brat is that, he nailed it.  The kid did one heck of a job with the song.  The little brat says he loves to sing with his grand mother.  He’s in the finals of AMT, and you can watch the show and vote to put him over the top…The little brat was really good….Got a standing ovation from the judges…..You go little brat….

Trudy Lynn has a new BCD entitled “Royal Oaks Blues Café.” I just played a cut from it…Effervescent Daddy……As of last weekend, it was the top selling blues album on the charts as compiled by Neilson SoundScan… Trudy is out of Houston, and she was the winner of the Jus Blues KoKo Taylor Award for 2013.  When Trudy puts on a show, she puts on a show….Congrats to Trudy and her success…..

The announcements were made for the Kennedy Center Inductions in December.  Among the receipts this year is the great Al Green.  Green will be joined by Lily Tomlin, Tom Hanks, Sting, and Patricia McBride.   Al’s first hit, Tired of Being Alone, hit the charts in 1971, and it was all uphill for Al, until the grits hit the fan.  He came back to gospel where he originally started and then back to R and B…… One thing is for sure with Al Green… He can definitely sing R & B, gospel, or anything else, and his music will live forever.  Great choice by the Kennedy Center.  The induction ceremony will take place Sunday, December 7th

Legendary Blues Artist, Joe Poonanny made the transition on August 27th …. He was born in Birmingham Alabama where his family lived across the street from a Blues Club.  He started out on playing the drums, because when he looked through the back door of the blues club, all he could see was the drummer.  So, he pursued the drums.  He ran night clubs and managed bands for about 30 years, but was not satisfied with that.  According to his bio on Malaco Records web site, he wanted to leave something with his name on it.  He teamed up with Waldoxy Records and Poonanny Be Still was recorded.  As he puts it, “People love knowing somebody’s else’s business.” That was his calling card.  Playing on words.  Poonanny Be Still became an instant hit, and others followed after that.  He was dubbed as the Godfather of the Chitlin Circuit.  His last album release was Brand New Cadillac….. Other albums recorded by Poonanny are  Grindin Man, That Baby ain’t Black Enough, Ponyrider and many more.  He was the best Blues Comedian out there.  His Going Home Celebration was September 3rd in Bessemer Alabama……

The brains behind One of the most informative Southern Soul web sites on the web, Southern Soul R &, where I get a lot of my information from and is run by a guy that calls himself Daddy B. Nice, is have surgery soon.  We won’t get into the specifics, but we want to wish Daddy B. Nice a speedy recovery, and let him know that we’re sending up a bunch of em for him….Get well dude….You’re the best at what you do….
