Kaize Adams: Self-Titled EP (CBX/One Stop LLC., 1997)

From a defunct community radio station in Atlanta, another underground gem from 1997 and a mixture of 90s R&B, New Jack Swing and gorgeous modern soul with Bobby Brown-esque flava. The artist, who hails from Columbia SC, had aspirations to become an R&B singer straight out of High School before God showed him that R&B music wasn't for him. In an interview with UK Gospel website Cross Rhythms.co.uk, he said "God showed me that R&B wasn't me. It didn't reflect what I was all about, and the lifestyle and content of some lyrics didn't line up to my beliefs, my character. Gospel music, on the other hand, did." He released "Testimony" in 2003 and the rest is history, but in my humble opinion his R&B work should not be discounted. "Teach Me How To Love" in particular is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever had the pleasure of hearing.
