If you have never heard of singer Suzann Christine, I suggest that you get onboard the #SUDAT Train now, while seats are still available.
I had heard a few songs sung by Suzann Christine, and had no idea who she was. The first time I really learned about Suzann Christine was from Paul Porter, former BET Program Director, Founder of Rap Rehab and author of the best-selling book BLACKOUT. The day that Paul brought her to my attention, I had just had a very emotional conversation with a longtime female friend who was going through a breakup with her husband after being together for over 30 years. I was sitting in my favorite chair. I felt helpless and was searching for a way to provide her some comfort and out of nowhere Paul contacted me and sent me the song “Falling Tears.” Talk about being moved emotionally. That was what both me and my friend needed.
I remember sharing with Paul that I thought Suzann had some type of magical intangible in her voice and phrasing. This next video is Suzann Christine performing her hit single acoustic style with her guitar player from the #SuDat band Larry Monroe. Spoiler Alert: Listen how she weaves some lyrics from The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” at the 3:05 minute mark.
Suzanne has opened for artists such as PnB Rock, Frankie Beverly and Maze, Babyface, Fantasia, Keyshia Cole, Raheem Devaughn, Ryan Leslie, T.I., Wale, DJ Khalid, The Whispers, Philly’s own Musiq Soulchild and more.
