Seal - Soul 2

Seal’s vocals have always be silky smooth and soulful, dating back to his mellifluous “Kiss from a Rose.” So it was no surprise that four years ago the British singer of Nigerian descent teamed up with producer David Foster to sing vintage rhythm and blues nuggets. A sequel to that bestselling CD, this collection of soul classics finds him putting his stamp on Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” and Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On.” But Seal really shines with his angelic rendition of the more obscure “Wishing on a Star.”
