James says her favorite track on her CD All the Way in stores March 14 is the Frank Sinatra standard of the same name.
She also puts her personal touches on songs by artists like Marvin Gaye, John Lennon, R. Kelly, Simply Red, and her old friend James Brown.
Of covering the testosterone-filled Brown classic, Its a Mans Mans Mans World, she says, James and I are cool...Everybody said, Uh Oh. Youre gonna get it from James for that. She teases, Well bite and spit on each other like some kids.
Shes also gone where no man has gone before by redoing Princes Purple Rain, but figures, I dont guess Prince is gonna kill me. I used to work with his dad.
James is so happy with all the songs, she says, I think this record is going to make a little noise.
