Music Review: Taj Amir

Taj Amir is a Muslim soul musician, and one of the most talented brothers i have heard. He effectively and ingeniously combines Islamic lyrics with old-school R&B and soul, and the result is excellent! His amazing voice earned him the offer of a solo career at the age of 17 by the producer of Jodeci's first album. Having just accepted Islam and decided to leave the music scene, he declined it, but began singing music with Islamic lyrics ten years later. Read his story and listen to clips of his songs on his myspace site (my favorite is "Thank U 4 Muhammad"). The best way to get to it is to first go here, then follow the link marked "website." Myspace opens up much more quickly that way. Also check out his interview with Radio Islam (scroll down to SUNDAY, JUNE 25, 2006).
