Goddaughter to the Godfather of soul and funk legend – James Brown – Carleen always makes time for another smouldering duet with good friend Jocelyn. Carleen said: “I always enjoy musical collaborations with Jocelyn Brown, firstly because she’s like a sister to look up to, that I’ve always wanted, who brings so much love and support with her generous spirit. Plus we have the kinship of the Gospel music heritage, as well as both of us being from the southern part of the US, with a very family resemblance in our vocal tone. And, there’s so much fun she delivers in her wisdom!”
There is more from the TONY award winning Melba Moore who joins Jocelyn on the track Merry Christmas to You.
