Patti Labelle intensely sings "We Haven't Finished Yet." Unfortunately, young Tressa Thomas' vibrant version from the film was not included on the CD. Rance Allen gives a sizzling performance on "I Feel Like Going On." The soundtrack makes a great companion to the movie, which is available from Fox Home Video.
