To end this week’s “Soulful Sunday,” I going to jump forward to the 1980s and early 90s. Someone asked me the other day why I do not focus the music of that period and especially the music of Seal. So I promised I would feature a song by this British Songster.
Henry Olesugun Adeola “Seal,” Samuel was born to a Nigerian mother and South American father. He was raised, however, by foster parents.
Seal’s singing career started in the nightclubs of London, England until he joined an R&B, and Soul band, The Push. That was back in 1987, when the band went on tour in Japan, India and Thailand. He would leave Push in Thailand and work with a Blues band before returning to England.
His first hit called “Killer,” was a Number One hit in the United Kingdom and was the launch of his solo career.
“Love Devine,” became a hit off his self-titled 2003 album.
Let’s listen to Seal with “Love Devine.”
Signing off for this week. I hope the music took you back in time and made you think about what you were doing when these songs were released.
See you next week and remember to like my website on social media and leave a message or request on the website in comments.
