Cover Star: Alvester Martin’s Moving ‘Make It To Me’ Cover (Sam Smith)

Alvester Martin is a name you should get used to hearing.

The R&B crooner may have seen his ever-talented dancing shoes slide right next to the likes of Beyonce, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Tamar Braxton, and more over the course of his career, but now his feet are guiding him center stage.

In a recent cover Martin’s soulful voice can be heard blessing fellow crooner Sam Smith‘s ‘Make It To Me.’ Adding in an ever-timely twist of Janet Jackson‘s ‘Come Back To Me’ (as this week marks the 25th anniversary of the release of its parent album ‘Rhythm Nation 1814′), press play below and tell us if he does the cuts justice:

Showcasing a sincerity oft lost in the everyday cover, Martin’s delivery of ‘Make It To Me’ made us believe every word he said.

Never succumbing to the urge to “overdo it” with embellishments, the simplicity of Alvester’s arrangement complimented that of the original singers’ without sounding as if he was trying to imitate.

We go for “sangers” who recognize singing is not just a showcase of the instrument, but also how it’s handled and manipulated.  Bravo Alvester for making this a “must hear”!

Rickey Smiley & ‘Queens Of Comedy’ Clap Back At Sheryl Underwood Claims Of Mistreatment

Smiley Slams The Comic Diva For Her Own

Sheryl underwood the talk rickey smiley queens of comedy Rickey Smiley & Queens Of Comedy Clap Back At Sheryl Underwood Claims Of Mistreatment

Well, that was fast.

It’s only been a day since comedienne/CBS ‘The Talk’ star Sheryl Underwood took the net by storm for alleging that she turned down an offer to participate in the hit stand-up film ‘Queens of Comedy’ due to its stars Sommore, Laura Hayes, and Adele Givens bad-mouthing her on a conference call.  But, it looks like a day was all that was needed for claws and clap backs to come out.

As previously reported, Underwood’s confession brought with it a gripping message of inspiration and perseverance against the odds.  Some comedians, namely Givens, Hayes, and Rickey Smiley, think Sheryl may be the one who needs to get a grip.

Each taking to public platforms to offer their 2 cents to the damning recount, the three have jointly fanned an already stable fire.  We see now it’s no laughing matter with these entertainers:
