Black Music History "Giving Them Roses" – Day 4: Ann Peebles

The Stand By Woman…

You’ve heard her voice and didn’t know it… You’ve sung her words and had no idea… Whenever clouds appear and rain begins to fall… If you can’t stand it… Well, you can thank Miss Ann Peebles for penning a song that fits your mood… There are few voices as soulful as hers… There’s no mistaken the heartbreak or ecstasy she sings in her songs… Much like Lyn Collins… Peebles voice has become widely recognized in hip hop… Thanks to Missy’s “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)” and Reflection Eternal’s “Memories Live”… Her voice will forever be “bringing back sweet memories…”

“bringing back sweet memories…”

It’s time to stand up for Ann Peebles.
