MIKI HOWARD

ALEX

 

Some people are destined to be stars. Songbird Miki Howard was born to sing. Her mother was a member of the legendary gospel group The Caravans, while her father sang with the renowned Pilgrim Jubilees. As a child, Miki was privileged enough to hang out with such luminaries like Aretha Franklin and Mavis Staples.
It is no wonder that Miki Howard would go on to international fame, garnering multiple hits and landing a role in a major motion picture. Justifiably considered one of the premier female soul stylists of the 80s and 90s, Howard developed a devoted fan base with such recordings as her 1993 tribute album to Billie Holiday (who she portrayed in Spike Lees film Malcolm X), her 1987 hit single and remake of the 1940s Glenn Miller standard Imagination, an original R&B Top 10 charted singles like Come Share My Love, Baby Be Mine and Love Under New Management.


Howard further endeared R&B devotees with her stellar remake of the Aretha Franklin classic Until You Come Back To Me which was a Top 5 R&B hit for Miki in 1990. She also had a string of No. 1 hits like Aint Nuthin In The World and Aint Nobody Like You. Howards highly anticipated Shanachie Entertainment debut and first new CD in five years, Pillow Talk: Miki Sings The Classics, is a refreshing reminder that she is a soulful singer who knows how to fuse the best elements of jazz, gospel and R&B.


Pillow Talk: Miki Sings The Classics showcases Miki Howards distinctive treatments of ten memorable compositions from the 70s and 80s. The album gets its title from Mikis slinky rendition of the 1973 gold single by Sylvia. Also included on Pillow Talk: Miki Sings The Classics is Natalie Coles No. 1 pop/R&B 1976 classic Inseparable, which brought back many fond memories for Miki Howard who relocated to Los Angeles during her teen years.
Pillow Talk: Miki Sings The Classics represents the latest step in Miki Howards musical journey. After her work with Side Effect, she signed with Atlantic Records in 1987 and immediately experienced success with the Come Share My Love. After two more best-selling albums for Atlantic, Miki cut two sets for Giant Records, Femme Fatale and the critically-acclaimed Miki Sings Billie, a tribute to Billie Holiday, one of her primary influences along with Aretha Franklin, Mavis Staples and other gospel-trained vocalists. Indeed, Spike Lee cast Miki in the role of Holiday for his 1992 movie Malcolm X.
