I recently was sent a copy of Reach Out by Human Nature. I'm a big R&B lover, and Human Nature has reprised many old Motown songs on Reach Out, so I knew I would enjoy this CD!
About Human Nature:
“Human Nature are amazing!" - Michael Jackson
“Wonderful vocalists who really know how to entertain a crowd.” - Celine Dion
Australia’s most popular & successful vocal group, Human Nature release their first album – Reach Out in the U.S. on September 1st. Reach Out is being released exclusively via Barnes & Noble physically and will be available widely digitally. The album will be released to all retailers physically on March 2, 2010.
Since they signed with Sony in 1994, Human Nature have earned 23 Platinum Awards in their native Australia and have toured throughout the world. Their largest audience was at the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000 where they performed before 4 billion viewers worldwide. The band has had 17 Top 40 Hits and Five Top Ten Hits since 1996, has opened tours of Asia and Europe for both Michael Jackson and Celine Dion , and have won several Arias (Australia’s version of the Grammy’s) and virtually every other major entertainment award that country has to offer. Their last four releases in Australia have reached #1 on the charts there!
Now Human Nature has set their sites on America.
Human Nature are launching their assault via a headlining run at The Imperial Palace Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, in a show presented by their mentor & friend Smokey Robinson.
