This songstress has managed to survive the changes and fads of the ever changing and competitive music industry. Shirley began her career in 1974 with Stax Records where she delivered the above mentioned "Woman To Woman." One year later, Stax folded and a bemused Brown searched for another label. In 1977, Brown fround Arista Records where she stayed until 1979.
In 1989, she found her home at Malaco Records and it has been a winning combination for over a decade. The secret to Shirley's success is her almost operatically big voice. She describes her voice as "music from the heart." If given the chance, one must witness Shirley Brown at a live performance. She carries an uncanny ability to move audiences through a range of emotions throughout the show, always leaving them wanting more.
Brown stated that one day a reporter asked her "When will the Diva of Soul ever slow down?" Shirley, without hesitating, answered, "Honey, tell 'em I am just getting started!" She has recorded six albums since coming to Malaco and proves that she has no intention of slowing down any time soon with the release of this collection. Brown continuously performs throughout the south and still maintains a strong and growing fan base of all ages.
