Emeli Sande 2     Welcome to another edition of GOT SOUL, where we feature some amazing  r & b artists from overseas in the United Kingdom, and dare to compare them with some of our very own here in the United States.  In this segment, our featured artist is Emeli Sande, an amazing talent whose debut album titled OUR VERSION OF EVENTS, is currently # 1 on the  UK charts.  When you hear this powerful and melodic voice many artist may come to mind such as Kelly Rowland, Melanie Fiona,  Beyoncé, and a host of others.

Take a listen to Mrs. Emeli Sande and let us know what you think and then give us your thoughts on whether or not you think we got the match up and comparisons correct in this friendly competition.  We would like this to be a friendly debate with positive dialogue so feel free to leave comments.

      Jay-Z and Beyoncé did their part on September 18th, 2012 to help ensure that President Barak Obama remains ATOP THE THRONEcome this November’s presidential election.  The hip hop mogul and his wife hosted a fund-raiser at the famed 40/40 club in New York City.  The event was priced at $40,000.00 per ticket to gain entry and dine with President Barak Obama as well as the Jigga Man himself.  4 million dollars later it is safe to say that it was a huge success.  Lets hope that other mega stars follow suit in using their celebrity to raise money, and awareness to the campaign as well as the importance of getting out to vote on election day November 6,2012.

It is important to note that we all have a part to play in the upcoming election.  Although the masses who support the president may not be in a position to raise millions of dollars, we can do something equally as important if not more, and that is to VOTE!VOTE!VOTE! It is almost a certainty that President Barak Obama will appreciate your vote just as much.  Let us not disappoint on that day and do our part.
