The Voice speaks for itself.
It is unique, It is missing a frequency.......
Simply put, Rose Windross is the original singer/songwriter that put the acclaimed band SOUL II SOUL on the global world map. Her song is FAIRPLAY, and with her energetic stage presence and persona, her over powering vocal ability wins over the hearts of her audience immediately.
Although it was never officially released in the UK as a single, the U.S adopted the creative idea of her song, merging Hip Hop beats with sweet vocals (e.g Mary J Blige ). History was in the making. This track is still firmly placed as iconic to all Hip Hop historians of today, and for the die-hard fans, ‘Fairplay’ is the given favourite track on the first Soul II Soul album ‘Club Classics Vol 1’ (re-named ‘Keep On Movin’ for the Americas).
