"Best known as the voice behind the classic Mtume slow jam “Juicy Fruit”, that song is actually just the tip of the musical iceberg for Tawatha. In a career that now spans almost three decades, she has worked with everyone from Aretha Franklin, Lenny Kravitz and Luther Vandross to David Bowie and the Dave Matthews Band. Moreover, she has become a recurring presence both in the studio and on the stage, singing on numerous TV and radio jingles and even hired other vocalists for recording sessions. She is a primary “go-to” person. In the music business this is known as the Vocal Contractor." - DJ Soulswede
