“ Yeah, we were forbidden to sing the truth.”
Patti LaBelle, 2008
“…i see a little sunshine inside inside of you …”
Philly-based producer Nick Martinelli gave [Stephanie] Mills her second number one R&B hit with “I Feel Good All Over,” written by husband-and-wife songwriting duo, Gabriel Hardeman and Annette Hardeman. The song held the number one R&B spot for three weeks in spring 1987. Originally submitted to Mills’ fellow MCA labelmate Patti Labelle by the Hardemans, the track was included on Mills’ LP If I Were Your Woman issued June 1987, which peaked at number 30 Pop in summer 1987.
“ …She made me sing a lead and when I finished singing, the church gave me a stand-up “Hallelujah, Amen” and I thought, “Oh shoot, maybe this is my calling!” That is how I found out that I really wanted to sing.”
