Overview

Willie Norwood, the father of pop/R&B music superstars Brandy and Ray J, shows where they get their skills from on this, his debut recording. 'Bout It encompasses a gamut of musical styles: soul and pop as well as traditional gospel. Featured are covers of the Stevie Wonder gospel composition "Have a Talk With God," along with the Jackie DeShannon-penned inspirational classic, "Put a Little Love in Your Heart." The hymn "Have Thine Own Way" pairs Norwood with Ray J vocally. Popular gospel group the Williams Brothers penned and contributed backing vocals to the tracks "The Search Is Over" and "No Limit." The gospel classic "I'd Trade a Lifetime" takes Norwood back to his early years in the church. The track features a guest appearance from keyboard legend Billy Preston. Brandy teams up with dad on the lushly produced inspirational track "A Love Shared." The track also features some stellar sax work from Kirk Whalum. If nothing else, 'Bout It shows that Willie Norwood does have skills.
