May Artist of the Month: Alexander O'Neal

As the original lead singer of The Time (known then as Flyte Tyme) Alexander O'Neal would experience numerous set backs before finally breaking through as a solo artist with his 1985 self-titled debut. Joining forces with ex-band mates Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis (as well as Monte Moir & Jellybean Johnson on various other tracks) Alex would become one of the top Male R&B vocalist of the mid to late 80s. Best known for his duets with label mate Charrelle, the two would help define what would be called The Minneapolis Sound. Alexander split from Jam & Lewis in the early 90s which marked the end of his days on the US charts. However O'Neal remained popular in the UK throughout the decade and into the next. Listing Minneapolis as his home, Alex spends a great deal of time in Britain where he still enjoys sold out tours and good record sales. In 2008 Alex released his 13th album "Alex Loves" a collection of standards including new versions of his own "If You Were Here Tonight" and "Saturday Love" (the duet hit with Charrelle) During the month of May, Reunion Radio will be bringing you the past and present music of Alexander O'Neal. From classic slow jams to Minneapolis Funk one thing is for sure ....... "It's gonna be kinda right" (c) Alexander O'Neal
