Natural Thing by Tanya Blount
I’m sure you all remember Tanya Blount’s role in the movie Sister Act 2, but did you know she released an R&B album? If not, I suggest you check out Natural Thing. The album was released in 1994 and will likely be a little harder to find. But, this one is worth the search because from the first track to the last, the music leaves enough room for Tanya’s soulful voice to shine. Speaking of vocals, Freddie Jackson joins Tanya on the track Is It Love. My favorites on the album are Through the Rain (included in this week’s Monday Mix), Spend Another Night, and her cover of the R&B classic, Love Ballad. If you want an album that fits into the “oldie but goodie” category, look for Tanya Blount’s Natural Thing.
