Hey! All you lover’s of soul music, a flash from the past is back and doing his thing. I’m talking about Melvin Davis. He was the lead singer with the 70’s group “The 8th Day”. He’s a singer, songwriter, drummer, and bandleader from Detroit. Melvin was born in 1942 and was around in the Motown era. Melvin worked with artists such as Smokey Robinson, David Ruffin, Wayne Krammer and Dennis Coffey. Their hit song was “You’ve Got To Crawl Before You Walk.”
Now decades later he is still singing. He released an album call “Double or Nothing” on April 17, 2015. Melvin Davis at the age of 73 is still going strong. His song “Double or Nothing” still has that soul favor Melvin Davis is known for. Some the other songs I like on the album are “Cherish Each Moment”, “Something I Just Don’t Do”, “WCTP”, “Why We Can’t Communicate” and “Let Love In Your Life”.
