I tip my hat to Bob Davis at Soul-Patrol.com for the news about Perri McKissack, who got her fame and fortune as “Pebbles.” She is now a Christian recording artist known as Sister Perri.
You remember Pebbles, right? “Mercedes Boy” was a monster. (Has it been 20 years? Oh crap... it’s all moving too fast...)
Pebbles is also the ex-wife of L.A. Reid and the ex-manager of TLC. The drama behind all that is probably what led her to Jesus.
In any case, Sister Perri has a new double-CD out: “Prophetic Flows Vol. I & II.”
There’s a free MP3 available on the official Sister Perri website... but you’ll have to give up some personal information. I’m not crazy about that, so I won’t call this one of my bona fide daily freebies.
But I went for it... just so I could stream the track for y’all on my Vox blog. Click here if you wanna check out “Say No.”
It ain’t no “Mercedes Boy.”
