Welcome back to Soul Sunday's, since it's christmas today's selections are "Santa Baby" by the the famous "Sex kitten" Eartha kitt & Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas is you "Eartha Kitt died in New York, where she was being treated for colon cancer. She ironically died on christmas day in 2008 at the age of 81. She was best known for her portrayal of Catwoman in the Batman television series of the 1960s.She was one of the few artists who have been nominated for Tony, Grammy and Emmy awards.When miss kitt was diagnosed with cancer She refused to give into the disease, brazenly continuing to flaunt her attributes. Eartha kitt was a product of slavery & rape. Her mother was black & Cherokee who lived on a plantation & her father was white he raped her mother and she was born. Eartha's mother gave her away at birth & even though she was an orphan and had a rough childhood she didn't allow that to stop her from becoming successful. I'm including Mariah Carey's video. Watch her kill it with her high falsetto voice & old school looking video.Happy holidays from our Fam to yours! Stay humbled!Mrs. Toons

Welcome back to Soul Sunday's! Today's selection's are "I'm Gone" & "Lee Goofed" by Shirley & Lee. Their debut single "I'm Gone" was written & produced by Dave Bartholomew, imperial's writer/arranger/ producer. "Lee goofed" was a comeback for "I'm Gone" Early in their careers, Shirley & Lee became known as "The Sweethearts of the Blues," a nickname given not for their personal relationship, but for their romantic sagas of their songs, which often bordered on telling a fictional soap-opera storyline about two lovers. Their fans would buy the singles simply to keep up with the continuing story of the two sweethearts. The story continued with the very next single, "Shirley Come Back to Me," a heartbreaker released in early 1953, followed by "Shirley's Back," later that year. This happy theme continued through the happy ending for the next single, "The Proposal" & "Two Happy People." after the story telling through their songs they decided to change it up a bit with "Let the good times roll". Shirley & Lee parted their separate ways in 1962-1963. In 1974 Shirley joined another group and called themselves Shirley & Company & created the disco hit "Shame, Shame, Shame" a very big transition from the other songs she did.... I'm also including this song. The video is a trip very old school.Happy Holidays & stay humbled.

Christopher Eric Hitchens (13 April 1949 – 15 December 2011) was an English author and journalist whose books, essays, and journalistic career spanned more than four decades. He was a columnist and literary critic at The Atlantic, Vanity Fair, Slate, World Affairs, The Nation, Free Inquiry, and became a media fellow at the Hoover Institution in September 2008. He was a staple of talk shows and lecture circuits and in 2005 was voted the world's fifth top public intellectual in a Prospect/Foreign Policy poll.
Hitchens was known for his admiration of George Orwell, Thomas Paine, and Thomas Jefferson and for his excoriating critiques of, among others, Mother Teresa, Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Henry Kissinger. His confrontational style of debate made him both a lauded and controversial figure. As a political observer, polemicist and self-defined radical, he rose to prominence as a fixture of the left-wing publications in his native Britain and in the United States. His departure from the established political left began in 1989 after what he called the "tepid reaction" of the Western left following Ayatollah Khomeini's issue of a fatwā calling for the murder of Salman Rushdie. The September 11 attacks strengthened his internationalist embrace of an interventionist foreign policy, and his vociferous criticism of what he called "fascism with an Islamic face." His numerous editorials in support of the Iraq War caused some to label him a neoconservative, although Hitchens insisted he was not "a conservative of any kind."
Identified as a champion of the "New Atheism" movement, Hitchens described himself as an antitheist and a believer in the philosophical values of the Enlightenment. Hitchens said that a person "could be an atheist and wish that belief in god were correct," but that "an antitheist, a term I'm trying to get into circulation, is someone who is relieved that there's no evidence for such an assertion." He argued that the concept of god or a supreme being is a totalitarian belief that destroys individual freedom, and that free expression and scientific discovery should replace religion as a means of teaching ethics and defining human civilization. He wrote at length on atheism and the nature of religion in his 2007 book God Is Not Great.
Though Hitchens retained his British citizenship, he became a United States citizen on the steps of the Jefferson Memorial on 13 April 2007, his 58th birthday. Asteroid 57901 is named after him. His memoir, Hitch-22, was published in June 2010. Touring for the book was cut short later the same month so that he could begin treatment for newly diagnosed esophageal cancer. On 15 December 2011, Christopher Hitchens died from pneumonia, a complication of his cancer, in the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas
