    How come he didn't mention Sam Cooke? He's the one I hear the most on Rob's music.

    2nd R., I was thinking the same thing re: Sam Cooke. Oh well I guess he forgot some of his other influences 'cause we know Kellz has been influenced somehow by Sam Cooke. I loved hearing Sam Cooke's music in the background while Kellz was getting ready for his Oakland performance on the Light It Up Tour.

    blitz R. tells Amazon his list of "music you should hear"!



    The King of R&B's Double Up,Double Up, delivers a potent potion of pure signature R&B with some Hip Hop on top. R. Kelly shares with Amazon customers some of his favorite music.



    R. Kelly's List of Music You Should Hear



    Stevie Wonder, “Sunshine of My Life” - Stevie Wonder - Song Review: Greatest Hits
    Because he dedicated it to his child and I have three of my own. Stevie inspired me to want to be a singer and write songs because his song writing and melodies connected me and the world.

    Stevie Wonder, “Ribbon in The Sky” - Stevie Wonder - Song Review: Greatest Hits
    I did it in a high school talent show when I was 16 and it was the first live performance I ever did.

    Stevie Wonder, “Masterblaster (Jammin')” - Stevie Wonder - Song Review: Greatest Hits
    There’s a riff on there that is the hardest riff in the world to get. If anyone ever imitated Stevie, then they would have to get this riff. And I don’t know of anyone who ever got the riff, except me, moi.

    Donny Hathaway, “Song For you” - A Donny Hathaway Collection
    It’s a song I play on the piano and dedicate to my mom no matter where I am. She loves that song and said to me if you learn any song, learn “A Song For You.”

    Donny Hathaway, “The Ghetto” - A Donny Hathaway Collection
    I’m from the ghetto as they call it, the hood. Hathaway was from the ghetto and saw so many things that it comes through in his voice. It isn’t just a voice, it’s his testimony.

    Gladys Knight, “Midnight Train to Georgia” - Essential Collection
    It snatches you by the collar and brings you in to say, “Remember me.” My mom sounded like Gladys and would sing this song.

    Aretha Franklin, “Dr. Feelgood” - Aretha Franklin - 30 Greatest Hits
    A song my mom would sing around the house and it makes me smile today because I remember hearing my mom sing it.

    Aretha Franklin, “Natural Woman” - Aretha Franklin - 30 Greatest Hits
    Even when I listen to it today, it’s still wild. I still make the same faces when she riffs, and she riffs like no other. Very soulful, church, party, boogie, and passionate.


    Al Green, “Let’s Stay Together” - Definitive Greatest Hits
    He meant it. Pretty much like me, I mean what I say, because Al Green meant what he said. He was talking about us as a people, let’s live, let’s love.

    Lionel Richie, “Truly” - The Definitive Collection
    This song captivated the world. He was always on point, made sure the melody, lyrics and concept of the song were framed in a beautiful frame. He painted his songs with class

    Tina Turner, “Private Dancer” - Private Dancer: Centenary
    I grew up with this one.

    Ronald Isley/Isley Brothers, “Groove With You” Isley Brothers Greatest Hits 1- He made everything alright when we were struggling growing up.

    Ronald Isley/Isley Brothers, “Between the Sheets” - Isley Brothers Greatest Hits 1
    He’s like a father to me. He inspired me to be in this forever.

    Marvin Gaye, “What’s Going On” - Gold
    He knew how to take an issue and sing about it to the point where you were forced to stop and listen to it. It made you humble.

    Marvin Gaye, “Sexual Healing” - Gold
    He healed my community and the world.

    Michael Jackson, “Thriller” - Number Ones
    It changed the world, made us say “wow.” There are no rules in music.
    Elvis Presley, “Hound Dog” - ELV1S 30 #1 Hits
    People around here call me the black Elvis, and I’m inspired by that.

    Elvis Presley, “Love Me Tender” - ELV1S 30 #1 Hits
    He sang in his movies and that’s pretty much what I do with Trapped in The Closet.

    Billie Holliday, “Solitude” - Billie Holiday - Greatest Hits (Sony)
    I go to bed to Billie Holiday every night.

    Yes, I saw this before too. Maybe braidedgirl posted it. However, I wonder why he didn't name one rap song...

    maybe because his 1st influences were r&b. he seems to have given us his basis for what he is. his love and his passion.
