Spinderella on Johnny Gill’s Talent
Johnny Gill got a record deal at 15!!!! Do you understand that!? That is clearly genius vocal ability at an early age!!!! At 15, his appearance looked very different than his voice and he was clearly way beyond his own years. Johnny had more soul in his 15 year-old body than a lot of singers twice his age. God definitely blessed him with THAT voice.
Artist should learn from Johnny’s Unsung episode to always have a strategy. A strong strategy can catapult an artist to out-of-this-world mega success. Without it, your best hit might not ever be heard. What song is released and when is critical! Sometimes it’s for the better if you don’t put your best song out first. Johnny did just that on his 1990 album entitled, Johnny Gill. He flipped the script and came out with “Rub You the Right Way” first, an up-tempo song by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. While that was in heavy rotation on radios across the country he followed it up with what would be his signature ballad, “My, My, My” – definitely his best!
