A Tribute to Gerald Levert

I am on a 30 minutes lunch break, not enough time to work through this post, so please bear with me.

First, it is amazing how Gerald Levert’s untimely death passed unnoticed on our ‘kafunda!’ It could have for me if Feliste and Nada didn’t leave SMS’ on my cellular phone a couple of days ago. I am always out of the scoop but these seemed like messages of doom, so I pushed my treo phone to search web news on G.L... I couldn’t believe my eyes and was in utter shock later when much vibe confirmed it on our School of Health Sciences canteen TV!!!

I send my deepest sympathy to the Levert family during these trying times and I hope they stay strong. Teveria said it better and I quote; “God only takes the best. Hold on family and trust in him for comfort. We all are grieving with YOU in your loss, he was a wonderful young man whom we all admired and loved.”



A glowing tribute to Gerald Levert

Is it only me, but doesn’t it seem like all our pure R&B and Swing music icons of the 90's are sailing off the earth crust? We need them here to restore the dying R&B respect back to the mainstream…classics from Al B Sure, Shai, Silk, Gerald Levert, Keith Sweat, Johnny Gill, NE, Jodeci, After 7, Portrait, Boyz II Men, All 4 One, Azyet, 4 PM, Tevin, 3T Brotherhood et al. speak for themselves. It is against this background that I attempt to revive some of my favorite old school 90's courtesy of YOU TUBE links, just in case something happens to any of the remaining R&B soldiers. Enjoy in rememberance of the hasky voiced teddy bear GL...

Baby Hold on To Me (GERALD LEVERT)
If I Ever Fall in Luv (
SHAI)
My, My, My (
JOHNNY GILL)
Freak On You (
JODECI)
Water Runs Dry (
BOYZ II MEN)
Hard To Say I am Sorry (
AZYET)
Freak with You (
SILK)
Nobody Knows (
TONI RICH)
Why Me Baby (
KEITH SWEAT)
Right Now (
AL B SURE)
Tell Me Its Real (
KCI & JOJO)


R.I.P Luther Vandross, Left Eye, Gerald Levert, Barry White et al. A quick recovery to Al B Sure, Teddy Pendergrass…

I was in TOTAL SHOCK too!!!

My fav. song was "I'd give anything to fall in love." So many of 'em solo songs from G.L that I am at a loss sorting 'em out.

Rest in peace, G.L, you passed on too soon.

I rarely leave a response, however after looking at through a few of
the remarks on "A Tribute to Gerald Levert". I actually
do have a few questions for you if it's okay. Is it only me or does it appear like a few of the comments appear like they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I'd like to keep up with
anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list
of all of all your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
