What can you say about Howard Hewett? When you talk about all time singers, he is always at the top of that list. The reason for this is the versatility. You have great male singers, but most of them are exclusively balladeers. There’s nothing wrong with that, but at times I used to cringe a little when an artist would attempt to put out an uptempo jam. The songs were usually decent, but you knew that they were not going to be number one hits.
Howard on the other hand, is one of the few male vocalists that can truly transition from slow jams to mid-tempo songs to dance tracks. All you need to do is go back to Shalamar to recognize the uptempo stuff.
I will NEVER get tired of A Night To Remember!
When he went solo, Hewett gave us some classic slow jams, thereby cementing himself as one of the all time male vocalists.
He still performs with Shalamar, but the only problem is that they almost exclusively perform in the UK, so those of us here in the United States are not able to see the group perform.
Luckily, Hewett performs several solo shows in the US. Hey, at least we have that, right?
