In this weeks news.. I regret to inform of the death of Charles Love, a founding member, guitarist and vocalist for the group Bloodstone. Love reportedly died of complications from pneumonia in his home town of Kansas City, Missouri. Bloodstone was formed in 1962 as a high school doo-wop group then called the Sinceres. more at: Soultracks

A singer claiming to be Michael Jackson‘s illegitimate son has DNA evidence as proof that he is the King of Pop’s child. TMZ reports that there is a 99.9 percent chance that Brandon Howard is Jackson’s son. At a press conference announcing the test results, FilmOn.com owner Alki David claims there’s a DNA match between Howard and Jackson. The late singer’s dental impression from a Beverly Hills doctor was obtained by David at an auction. That impression was used to retrieve DNA. Gospel singer Miki Howard is Brandon Howard’s mother, who was managed by Joe Jackson during her career. In 1982, the songstress went by the name “Billy.’ One year later, Michael Jackson released his hit ‘Billie Jean,’ which included the lyrics, “Billie Jean’s not my lover” and “The kid is not my son.”  Read More: Boombox

With Ledisi's latest "I Blame You" burning up the Urban AC Charts, we knew it wouldn't be too long before we heard about an upcoming album. On February 11, 2014, the Grammy-nominated songstress will release her fifth studio album The Truth. For soul and R&B fans, the wait for her follow up to Pieces of Me has been two years too long. The clarity, sensitivity and grit of Ledisi's voice make her a quantity that was sorely missed. We were somewhat satiated with her GRAMMY-nominated collaboration with Robert Glasper Experiment on "Gonna Be Alright (F.T.B.)," but there is nothing like a full-length project from this SoulBounce fave. We'll have to wait for her new body of work for a few more months, but we'll get to see her in action on Sunday, November 3rd on Black Girls Rock! on BET and her "I Blame You" video should drop soon as well. Now is definitely a great time to be a Ledisi fan. (ThisisR&B.com)

Anthony Hamilton Biography:

Born: Jan. 28, 1971 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Raised in North Carolina.
Early Life & Career:
Getting his start at age ten singing in his church choir, Hamilton also performed as a teenager at various nightclubs and talent shows. In 1993, he moved to New York City, eventually signing with Uptown Records, which was at the time home to artists such as Jodeci and Mary J. Blige. By 1995, Uptown was set to push Hamilton's debut album, but the company went out of business, leaving the album unreleased. Hamilton then signed with MCA and recorded his largely overlooked 1996 album, XTC. Eventually he found himself at the Soulife label.
It was at Soulife (which was run by some of the singer's old Charlotte friends), that Hamilton laid down tracks for another solo album and also wrote songs for such artists as Donell Jones and Sunshine Anderson. Eventually however, Soulife went belly-up too. So with a second album unreleased, Hamilton spent the next two years selling songs and singing backup for artists. Then, in 2002 a lead spot singing on the Nappy Roots track "Po' Folks" garnered Hamilton some much-needed attention.
