How can one determine that this is a good song, well the first few seconds can say a lot about the rest of the 3 minutes. Okay let’s talk about MIRABELLE FOBI’s energy for a bit. Her energy flows from her music to one’s soul and definitely you will feel it within the first 12 seconds. The Cameroonian-American nurse, singer, songwriter, model and producer was brought up a in Christian home and influenced greatly by James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Manu Dibango, Celine Dion, Sam Cooke and Fela Kuti.
