LeGrand Whitt on Who The King of R&B is "I could be King of R&B because I never wavered from it" (Part 2)

"The ladies tell me when I sing, it makes them feel like they’re the only one in the room. So it’s not always how well you sing; it’s how well you please the audience and your fans."

Mistah Wilson: How do you feel about there being a so-called "King" of R&B? Do you embrace tha notion or do you think it's a stretch?
LeGrand Whitt: I could be King of R&B because I never wavered from it. Because I was trained to sing R&B even though I can sing anything that I put my mind to. Being a King is earned by constantly studying my craft. Listening to all types of music so I can be well versed in all areas of music. As King when I perform I control the room with my voice and personality. And the Ladies love it. The ladies tell me when I sing, it makes them feel like they’re the only one in the room. So it’s not always how well you sing; it’s how well you please the audience and your fans.

Mistah Wilson: If you could only recommend one song off tha album, which one would it be and why?
LeGrand Whitt: I would recommend the song "Do My Life (remix)" because I write according to what’s going on in the world today. And what I see in the world today is not pretty for us as people of color. So my way of expressing my inner feelings and thoughts is through my song "Do My Life". Because if you look around, every black leader that we’ve had that was leading us to a better place was murdered by our own people because of generational curses. I’m hoping that my music would help change the way people think about each other. I want to touch humankind's souls.

Mistah Wilson: You're no stranger to performing. What have been some of your favorite shows and venues you've performed in?
LeGrand Whitt: The places that I liked to perform in was The Los Angeles Convention Center for the hair show Unplug. The Study in Hollywood was a great venue there was nothing but women there and it was a great show. Laguna Beach Resort was great too I was performing in front of a bunch of millionaires and rich dignitaries we had a ball because when you see them on the outside they act like they’re so conservative but when they have a few drinks watch out for the entertainment lol. Cafe Roma’s in Beverly Hills I like the place because it was a bunch of stuck-up Beverly Hills people until I started singing and then they all wanted to be my best friend. And they were telling me I brought Marvin Gaye back to life. And the Boney James Band was backing me and they gave me a huge compliment to big ups to Café Roma in Beverly Hills.
