R&B crooners Omar Wilson, Shawn Stockman, Sisqó and Raheem DeVaughn have joined forces to remake Quincy Jones’ classic “The Secret Garden (Sweet Seduction Suite),” which originally featured Al B. Sure!, James Ingram, El DeBarge and Barry White.
“To perform this classic with this caliber of artists was an honor. I wanted to preserve the integrity of the part of one of my heroes, (El Debarge). I hope he enjoys what I’ve done”, Stockman said in a statement.
“I am extremely excited to be part of a Quincy Jones classic originally performed by legendary artist like Al B Sure, James Ingram, El DeBarge and Barry White. This was a no-brainer for me,” said Sisqó.
DeVaughn added, “For me, remakes are about preserving the culture of a song and vibe that was already ingenious. It’s an honor to be on the track with three other distinct voices and reintroduce an entire new generation to this vibe.”
Meanwhile, Wilson said, “Being able to recreate an already iconic song and share the journey with three other powerful singers is beyond a dream come true for me. Thank you Quincy Jones for the creation and inspiration and we look forward to making you proud. adds Omar.”
