Lost Gem: Wayne Brady helps All-4-One's Jamie Jones inspire us on "Don't Stop"

Longtime SoulTrackers know that we feel that the quartet All-4-One created some of the best harmonies of the 90s and beyond (and they're still recording great albums to this day). But fewer know that All-4-One lead singer Jamie Jones has also established himself as a top notch songwriter and producer, working with his production team The Heavyweights and delivering hits for artists ranging from Regina Belle to Noel Gourdin.

But fewer know that All-4-One lead singer Jamie Jones has also established himself as a top notch songwriter and producer, working with his production team The Heavyweights and delivering hits for artists ranging from Regina Belle to Noel Gourdin.

The Heavyweights produced the hit album by comedian and television host Wayne Brady a decade ago and he returned the favor by teaming with Jones and William Cartwright on a terrific song that was featured on Jones' 2008 solo album. "Don't Stop" is a cool midtempo number that has the three alternating leads telling stories about working through the tough times toward success. It works as both a piece of inspiration and also a cut that is a winner musically. Unfortunately, too few people heard this song when it was released -- making it a very worthy candidate as our latest SoulTracks Lost Gem.
