Rahsaan Patterson came on the scene in 1997 with an eclectic, neo-soul, feel good, self-titled cd that promised an elevation in R&B. He’s dropped a couple more cd’s since, but never a holiday offering. This Christmas he’s offering “The Ultimate Gift” in holiday music. This album takes you on a trip similar to one of those gift boxes of chocolate. You don’t know what you’re going to get, but it’s sure to be satisfying. When he breaks into Stevie’s “What Christmas Means To Me,” you’ll grab your children and dance the holiday in.
In the first week of December he invited a group of journalists to meet him in Dallas for a celebration of the holiday disc. He visited The Tom Joyner Morning Shw and The Ride with Doug and Dede’s nationally syndicated radio shows and hosted a holiday reception with Dede McGuire, where Rahsaan collected toys, books and clothing for children in need as part of his “The Ultimate Gift Toy Drive.” Check out the photos from the excursion:
