Karen White's new album Carpe Diem

     Making it to the top of the game in the music business and then hopping off of that mountain to fall completely off of the radar can be a nebulous position from which to make a comeback after an eighteen year absence. But when you are sultry songbird Karyn White; returning to the forefront of the music world is a very realistic prospect. 

White and her gold & platinum
   After all, white’s extensive background as a backup singer and songwriter for several hit artists; a Soul Train Award and two Grammy Awards nominee; as well as a solo career that spawned a double platinum self titled debut album (Karyn White) with the mega-smash hit “Superwoman” which became a classic anthem and a gold follow-up album “Ritual Of Love” which included another smash single “Romantic” that hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart has established a lasting fan base which she can surely spring from. While out of the music biz, White firmly established herself as an interior design expert as well as a real estate professional and currently runs successful companies in both areas.

White's smash new single "Seize The Day"

     White has a new album “Carpe Diem” on her own KWE (Karyn White Enterprises) label distributed via Lightyear/EMI, which dropped this week featuring the hit single “Seize The Day.” She hasn’t lost a beat. Her vocal pipes are better than ever while her looks are still eye candy stunning. White’s biggest change without question is her mental maturity and the vast treasure of wisdom she has gained from lessons in all facets of her life experience. To sit down and seriously talk with White is an advance course in the music business, relationships and dealing with the head games that result. This lady tells it like it is and is quick to come clean about her flaws and mistakes. Her new music is a blend of that wisdom and the direction she is now going. White’s new album “Carpe Diem” has a mature edge with the correct mixture of R&B, Funk, hip-hop and smooth jazz. It the kind of music that grows on you, the more you listen to it.

White and former husband Terry Lewis

          While she was at the pentacle of her career in 1992, White married super record producer Terry Lewis of the famed Terry Lewis and Jimmy Jam production duo. They had a daughter the following year and were living fabulously in Minneapolis, Minnesota. To the outside world she had it all i.e., the mansion, the man, the fame, the platinum and gold. White and Lewis divorced seven years later in 1999. Having gone through the experience of being a power couple in the music biz, what is white’s opinion or advice on being married to someone in the same biz as you? She surprisingly responds, “It’s a blessing. First of all we represent only one percent who are doing it. It is really hard and it takes a lot of hard work and deduction. I think it takes one to know one so I believe for me it was strength. I wasn’t mature enough. Terry Lewis was an incredible husband, father, businessman, producer, writer, everything. I wasn’t mature enough to understand really what I had. It takes an understanding because your husband has to support what you do. A lot of men would probably be insecure saying I don’t want my woman away and not understand but Terry did. Yes, I would advise it”

    What did White learn most about herself during her time off? “God had me. Wow, I felt like I was in the wilderness because at a young age I was very faithful and I knew I had a calling. I knew I was very driven. I was very successful at being able to make my dreams become a reality through God opening doors and being in the right place at the right time and hard work. But my personality and my character and the pains of just growing up as a woman suffered. My mother really put focus on the fact of me being an entertainer but you have to be the whole woman. She was like Martha Stewart. She could cook and do all of that and I wish she would have given that to me but it was like she wanted me to kind of be like what she wasn’t. So the focus was on me being an entertainer since I was a little girl and this is what I wanted to do.”

White's book Carpe Diem
     White also has a new book of positive affirmations and thoughts also titled "Carpe Diem" which means "Seize The Day." She recently made an appearance on the TV One Network Show "Life After."
