Its OSF y'all and I must say, I let the holiday last week lead me astray. And have mercy, it was one of the most important posts too!!! A tribute to the one most musically high - Stevie Wonder. So we all know I am going to have to do an entry in ode to his glorious self. And on another quick note, CONGRATULATIONS to all of the amazing and talented artists that I absolutely adore who are nominated for a Grammy: Eric Benet, Jazmine Sullivan, Boyz II Men, Anthony David & India.Arie, Raphael Saadiq, Stevie Wonder and CJ Hilton, Wayne Brady, Al Green & Anthony Hamilton, Kenna, Maiysha, Chrisette Michelle, Janelle Monae, Wayna & Kokayi, Ne-Yo, Coldplay, Adele, Duffy, Radiohead, Beck, Gnarls Barkley, John Mayer, Nathalie Cole, Daft Punk, Eagles, Gerald Albright, Marcus Miller, Estelle, Pink and anything touched by Jay - Z. Now if that listing did not give you an inkling of my musical spread, I don't know what will. :)
Pictures and videos used on this site are all borrowed (well not all, some are actually mine) for everyone's viewing pleasure. They are not being used in a malicious matter, it is all in good fun and most likely to promote the good stuff found. Please don't threaten to sue, just ask me to take it down if it is a bother. If not, thanks for the borrow!!!

Alright, now back to the lecture at hand. Today's OSF is singers that turned actors/actors turned singers. Of course, all of the horrible examples are the ones that play on the cinema screen in the back of my mind (thanks Mrs. Grapevine!). Mariah Carey and Terrance Howard are right there at the top. I am even tempted to put Jamie Foxx on that list, but his Golden Statue prohibits me. If he would stop with the booty shit, we would have a winner all around. However, these two below are examples of how things are done right.
First up: The Diva representing for singer turned actor - Ms. Diana Ross. Mahogany, The Supremes, The Wiz, Lady Sings The Blues - Ms. Ross did the damn thing. My favorite song from this woman, the Theme from Mahogany.
And secondly, my actor turned singer goes to Tisha Campbell. Yes, I went THERE. I loved this woman. We all know she was that chick in House Party and who can forget her as Gina. But back in the day, when my girl dropped "Push" and "Love Me Down," Tisha gained a fan in me. Like her best friend Tichina Arnold, both can B-L-O-W. Not to mention Tisha knew her way around a dance floor like it was nobody's business. Friday Night Videos killed out both songs and I loved every minute of it. I didn't know which one to post, so here are both "Push" and "Love Me Down."
Have a good weekend y'all...
