What was great about my trip to NYC was meeting, hanging out with, and just vibing some really great, talented people. When
I arrived, Christopher David tells me that I’ve got to meet a
great guy by the name of Gordon Chambers.
He proceeded to tell me about how who he’s written for: Brandy, SWV, Whitney Houston,
and that he’s even won a Grammy by penning one of Anita Baker’s greatest songs, I
Apologize. After hearing about his writing skills, I listened to the
album and was instantly impressed- and I demanded an autographed copy.
Visiting him, and listening to him talk about books, music, and the music industry
was nothing compared to when I heard the man sing live. If I had one word to describe
his voice it would be illuminating.
