OnJaLee: S/T Promo (200x)

More mid-2000s R&B from Chicago singer-songwriter OnJaLee (Lashay) whose music is a mixture of blues, neo soul and contemporary R&B with a sophisticated edge. Inspired by artists such as Marvin Gaye, Minnie Riperton and Roberta Flack, she started out in 2006 and at some point made it to the semi finals of American Idol in her native Kansas City (as heard in an interview snippet with Ryan Seacrest himself on this very disc) but I believe she may have pulled out before production as I cannot find her name anywhere among the semi finalists. She is now the president of OLashay Strategic Marketing Solutions in Chicago. Many thanks once again to Stuaaart for the contribution.
