Aisha Eustache — Love & Addiction


Louis Fowler
These days, it’s hard to find that classically soulful R&B sound. With so many manufactured pop divas’ vocal trills and high-pitched squeaks masquerading as music, R&B sadly has become a vapid wasteland.

The gospel according to Sean

Sean C. Johnson lends his soulful sound to inspire the masses.


Louis Fowler
Neo-gospel singer Sean C. Johnson has always been a music fan, but it wasn’t until hearing a ’60s soul legend on a record player by chance that he decided, right then and there, that was what he wanted to do with his life.

Soul Williams — Love, Soul: The Musical Letters Collective, Part 1

Hip Hop/Rap

Louis Fowler
It’s easy to see why many secular types consider Christian music a joke. Badly produced, pre-programmed Casio backbeats and plastic saxophones providing the soundtrack to a holier-than-thou message inspires snickers and winces from even those least jaded. OKC’s Soul Williams aims to and succeeds in knocking some sense into that rightfully stereotyped scene.

OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff
Erykah Badu has more soul than you. That’s not a slight against you or anything; she just does. Known by people who know what they’re talking about as the “First Lady of Neo-Soul,” Badu has become the face of modern rhythm and blues, with sensual hooks, socially conscious lyrics ... and that voice. See her perform 8 p.m. Saturday at WinStar World Casino, 777 Casino Ave., in Thackerville. Tickets are $45-$75. Call 800-622-6317 or visit
