Something to Talk About

All Music Guide
It often happens that the sons or daughters of famous musicians launch a music career on the strength of the parent's reputation, with only a thimbleful of their own skill to offer.

Billboard - Gail Mitchell
The duo's combustible mix was first introduced in 1995 on Father & Son, which yielded the love and encouragement anthem "Wind Beneath My Wings." Already in the works before Gerald's untimely death in November 2006, this project once again underscores the uncanny resemblance of their singing voices.
