Cheryl Lynn - Got To Be Real

Recommended Posts

Cheryl Lynn (born Lynda Cheryl Smith, 11 March 1957, in Los Angeles, California) is a known disco, R&B and soul singer, who scored fame then success beginning in the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s. Lynn released her self-titled debut album, Cheryl Lynn. Produced by Toto keyboardist David Paich, the LP featured her first and biggest hit, "Got to Be Real" which was penned by Paich and Lynn, and has since been called one of the defining moments in disco. The song peaked at #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #1 on the R&B chart.From Wikipedia

She's got a classic ballad w/Luther Vandross. "If this World were mine." I can't really describe how good it is..from 1 to 10, a 15. :thumbsup:

Other chart entries followed, notably 'Shake It Up Tonight' (US R & B number 5), 'Encore' (US R & B number 1), and 'If You Were Mine' (US R & B number 11).

As far as her duet with Luther Vandross let me say that I had the priveledge of seeing them preform her athe the Westbery Music Fair with Cheryl as the opener and Luther of course the head liner. They closed the show with "If this world.." and the performance brought down the house. I have no doubt that both Tammi Terrel and Marvin Gaye were not disappointed with there version. Now they for some odd reason never did a video for this song, but a fan has made her own enjoy the music.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
