Concord Records interview with Peabo Bryson:
Also powerful is “I Promise I Do (The Wedding Song),” one of four songs that Peabo co-wrote on this 11-song project. Peabo composed this particular number with his most frequent current collaborator, Regina Troupe. Singing her praises, Peabo shares, “She’s pretty spectacular – very creative, talented and attractive. She started as a background singer of mine. During a rehearsal she was playing piano and singing something almost as a joke, but I could tell she really had the goods. She wanted to learn and do more, so I challenged her. Together, we took time to empower ourselves by mastering technology’s transition from analog to digital, and we’ve been writing great songs ever since. We are truly on the same page.” ~Peabo Bryson
