Once upon a time (1994-1995) a few great men of music got together to embody what it meant to be Young, Talented and Black, and what it meant to support the message #BlackLivesMatter…The results were a smash hit titled “U Will Know”. The song was featured on one of my favorite movies- Jason’s Lyric, which also happened to be filmed right here in Houston, TX.
