the last 25 years, Michael Henderson and Jean Carne have been
two of R & B/souls most entertaining artists. With a
slew of romantic hits between them, Henderson and Carne captivate
audiences. Henderson, who has toured with a number of artists
including Miles Davis, collaborated with drummer/writer Norman
Connors to produce a hit duet with Carne in 1975, Valentine
Love. That same year, Henderson performed another Connors
hit, You Are My Starship. Both songs hit the top 10
on Billboards R & B charts. On the Buddah label, Henderson
recorded a number of popular soul hits including Take Me
Im Yours, Wide Receiver and a duet with
the late Phyllis Hyman, Cant We Fall In Love Again?
Henderson, who continues to produce music for current and aspiring
artists, resides in LasVegas. Carne, who has performed with soul
and jazz greats such as Earth, Wind & Fire, Stanley Turrentine
and Dexter Wansel, recorded some of her biggest hits for Philadelphia
International Records in the late 70s and through the 80s. Some
of those songs included Was That It All It Was?, Free
Love, and Dont Let It Go To Your Head.
Carne, who resides in her hometown of Atlanta with her three children,
tours six months a year. Last year, Carne released the CD Collaborations.
