For all my ” Jazz Lovers” …I didn’t forget the Phyllis Hyman song ” Be One” heard in Spike Lee’s movie “School Daze”…
There is a book that was written by Author and Journalist Jason A. Michael … He did a biography about the late great Phyllis Hyman… And because the book is out of print but on different websites for the listing price starting at $90.00 to going price of over $200.00
Phyllis Hyman had a difficult childhood, her battle with unstable relationships, her addiction to drugs and alcohol, the deceptions of the music industry. and rumors that she dealing with the mental illness…Bi-polar
I decided that regardless of who writes about her and I pray someone does her life story. Her legacy will remain forever in the music industry….and come alive through us.

When I see how far all of her family has gone. Someone knew what a “Praying Spirit” was all about… I’d asked this question…Who do you know sings better than their own records?
There is no other sound, no one can imitate or duplicate their unique voices… and style… Recently on her sister’s talk show DORINDA… I had a chance to listen to Karen Clark Sheard… It brought me to my knees…What anointing and what a voice!!!
