The Soul Brother Show Featuring Susaye Greene



It's a new season of The Soul Brother Show and we're kicking things off in "Supreme" fashion! It's truly an honor and a privilege to bring to you some words of wisdom from the one and only Susaye Greene! As "The Last Supreme," the vocal stylings of Susaye can be found on the classic Motown albums High Energy and Mary, Scherrie, and Susaye. She would then go on to write Deniece Williams' classic hit, "Free" as well as co-write (along with Stevie Wonder) "I Can't Help It" for Michael Jackson's Off the Wall. She is also a very respected artist with her artwork featured on DeviantArt, the world's largest online community.

Ladies and gentlemen, it's a "Supreme" honor to welcome to The Soul Brother Show the lady who is not only my friend, but someone I affectionally refer to as "Mama Supreme" - the legendary Susaye Greene! 

Special thanks to Georgette, a-k-a the Soul Sister for the ideas and the bomb ass graphics and to DJ Chicken George for the inspiration.
