FEATURED CONT'D 6
Once in PA, I was impressed with the robust music scene here and in the nearby States of NY, NJ and DE. Immediately, I started making musical connections and began gigging with Philly icons Mean Machine, the late Novella ‘Sweet’ Briar, and even did a big concert at the Core States Spectrum, featuring McFadden and Whitehead, with whom I sang background harmonies to A’int No Stopping Us Now. Both of them are no longer with us.
In Philly, I also connected with Caribbean musicians from Jamaica, Trinidad and St Vincent, who have been very instrumental in making sure that I’m always gigging. Shout-Out to Raymond Charles, Dwight MacIntosh and Colvin ‘Atiba’ Fields.

Dale Knight with John Whitehead of the duo who sang, "Ain’t No Stopping Us Now", which is still popular at many parties and events today.
