Donny Hathaway & Roberta Flack, two incredible artists in their own right,  teamed up to create memorable duets including the Grammy Award winning “Where Is the Love.”  They are also both graduates of my alma mater Howard University (HU, you know!).  Feel free to comment on your favorite tracks. And be sure to check out postings throughout the month.
