I recently penned a tribute to the late Andre Harrell for Soultracks, the biggest website devoted to Soul Music. You can read it here. If you are a fan of old school legends like Heavy D & The Boyz, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Teddy Riley & Guy, Al B. Sure!, Mary J. Blige, Eddie F., Dave Hall, Jodeci, Father M.C., you probably heard them thanks to Harrell.
