This is for all of you American Idol fans. The next time you watch, pay attention to the background singers. There’s one you should aware of (probably all of them are better than most of the clowns in front. I don’t watch the show though.) Her name is Sy Smith. She’s pretty much been everywhere. You can hear her song, “Welcome to Syberspace” can be heard on the beginning of the Neo Soul Cafe audio podcasts. She on Myspace, so you junkies might have run across her music or her video, “Fa Sho”. She sung the title song for the show Soul Food with Al green. She’s also sung on the shows Ally Mcbeal and the aforementioned American Idol. She’s touring all over the place and has even performed in a recent Eric Jerome Dickey book (of which I cannot remember the name of). She’s done backup for a bunch of people including Me’shell N’degeocello (“Bitter” top 10 album easily, personally). Kinda busy, she is.
She’s been around for a few years now so you might have run across her work one way or another. If you haven’t get to know her a little better. She’s had two albums and you can probably find them around one way or another (check below or her website). She did an interview on Honeysoul.com in the middle of last year. Check that out (audio) here:
If you like what you’ve heard, check out her second album “The Syberspace Social” here (and buy it, it’s great):

Show her some love (or flash your breasts if you don’t know how)
