Morning Cup of Soul: Patrice Rushen - Feels So Real (Won't Let Go)

Such an underrated woman in music, Patrice Rushen not only sings but plays many instruments.  She’s not only a musician but also a music director and producer. This woman is bad! Not to mention if we made the soundtrack of the 80’s, she would appear numerous of times with hits like: Haven’t You Heard, Forget Me Nots and Feels So Real (Won’t Let Go).

While she hasn’t put out any new music since her 1997 “Signature” album that brought her back to her Jazz roots.  Patrice has remained busy as a musical director for award shows such as BET Walk of Fame and the Grammys. I hope we can get another album out of her though!

Here is “Feels So Real (Won’t Let Go) which has been sampled by everyone from Queen Latifah to Kirk Franklin.
