Black History Month: I thought that dude was Black!

I could do 28 29 days of Black History, but I think PBS is gonna take care of  that for me. So I have decided to dedicate the next 29 days to highlighting the best white America (and any other place white people are from) has to offer in soul singers.  I believe the lack of great soul music is why our country is so off kilter right now.
Y'all, this mess that is on the radio passing itself off as R&B is just awful. I miss good old fashion music!!!!
O.M.G. I am officially old.


I present to you...

PIONEER OF BLACK HISTORY: BLUE-EYED SOUL SINGER BOBBY CALDWELL

(You MUST read this in your Morgan Freeman Voice ) Source: Wikipedia

Bobby Caldwell (born August 15, 1951) is an American singersongwriter and multi-instrumentalist who, despite a prolific musical output over his 30-year career, is still best known for his 1978 hit single "What You Won't Do for Love".[1] While he has always maintained a devoted fan base in the United States, a legendary status has been bestowed upon him in Japan. For R&B and modern jazz fans in the United States, he retains the title of: "The white guy most often mistaken for an African American vocalist."






Doing my slow motion , "Hey, hey!"

We salute you Bobby Caldwell for your contribution to Black America: "Damn, I thought he was BLACK!"

  1. Here I thought it was just because I'm old, white and starting to get uptight that I didn't care for what they call R&B these days. I also can't stand any of that pop music, but that's a different story.....
