No, your eyes aren't deceiving you: Wayne Brady - yes that Wayne Brady - is coming out with an album soon. We've all heard Wayne on TV singing
corny classic songs like "Say A Little Prayer" and "The Candy Man," but how is he when it comes to singing contemporary pop, Soul and R&B? Well, judging by his debut single, "Ordinary," pretty good. Unlike actor Terrence Howard, who's also dropping an album next month, Wayne actually has a fairly strong, soulful voice. And "Ordinary," which pays tribute to everyday life, is better than your might expect it to be. Don't just take my word for it though: give it a listen by clicking on the link below. And if you're wondering, Wayne's debut album, A Long Time Coming, drops Sept. 16, 2008 via Peak Records/Concord Music.
