    Just okey nothing special here

    Wendy moten didn´t get as popular as Mariah Carey and this album shows why. the ballads are good and Wendy has a similar voice like Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey but the upbeat songs are just fillers and boring. Wendy only realeased few studio albums and her last came out in 1996, she is today a background vocalist for others.
