It Can Happen To Anyone (2007) Elisabeth Withers
BET Award Nominated "It Can Happen To Anyone" is Elisabeth Withers' debut CD and it does not disappoint, from the first note of the opening song Simple Things she rekindles memories of Gladys Knight and other soul singers from the golden age of R&B. I haven't heard anyone ever come that close to recapturing that sound but she does and does so effortlessly. The album however is more than a tribute to the bygone era as it's filled with plenty of modern influences, some gospel, some pop and even rock, the title track It Can Happen is the perfect example of this, part funk, part R&B and part soul. Other stand outs include Heartstrings, Listen, and Next To You.
Definitely a brilliant debut, and hopefully a foreshadowing of what she plans on continuing to bless the world with.
