Salsa con Soul

Here is an marvelous version of Chaka Khan's classic "Ain't Nobody". The vocals are sung by Aquilla Fearon. She is the lead singer for Alex Wilson who is a brilliant pianist, composer, producer and educator. He is one of the UK's foremost Latin music producers. He has done six solo albums and one of them is called Inglaterra where this amazing song comes from and it's a favourite in the salsa and dance clubs . As an educator, Alex have delivered workshops and master classes for young people both internationally, for the British Council in Colombia, Cuba, Lebanon, Jordan, Algeria and Israel as well as in the UK for music colleges such as the Royal Northern College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music. I'm loving the fact that he teaches and shares his talent with youth. About this song, there are two versions here, one is an edit by The Revenge and it has been featured in countless mixes, and also the original. I'm loving the whole salsa/soul vibe here and I must say, Aquilla's voice is fierce! Enjoy!
