“Singers Patti Austin and Siedah Garrett are gearing up for an all-female remake of the Quincy Jones-produced love anthem, ‘ Secret Garden .’
Just in time for the song’s 20-year anniversary, the two Jones protégés are hoping to put a ladylike twist on the classic originally recorded by Al B. Sure, El Debarge, James Ingram and the late Barry White. “(Source)

Al B. Sure
Barry White (RIP)
Composed by musical greats El Debarge, Siedah Garrett, Quincy Jones and Rod Temperton, “The Secret Garden” first appeared on the 1989 Quincy Jones CD “Back on the Block.” The original version was over six minutes of composer El DeBarge, plus Al B. Sure!, James Ingram and Barry White soulfully crooning romantic sweet-nothings over lush instrumentals.
The original single zoomed right to #1 on the R&B charts, and the landmark album won three Grammy Awards!
I wonder if four ladies can top that! What do you think?
Thanks for reading.
