Kelly Willard - Blame It On The One I Love
7th track from "Blame It On The One I Love" (1978). I just love the slight doubling of Kelly's voice here—like silk on silk! And I never tire of hearing this perky pop song.

Otherwise, I confess to not knowing much about Ms. Willard beyond the fact that her name is synonymous with the smooth CCM I so adore. Judging from photographs, I'd say she's a small, waifish, willowy-built woman. But her voice...ah, now that's something else! Much in demand for session work, she's sung backup on almost everybody-who's-anybody's album—almost like a female version of 'Mr. Backup' himself, Michael McDonald. But thankfully she's also stepped out of the shadows on occasion, as she does in this early release as well as in a handful of duets with the likes of jazz-fusionists Paul Clark and Roby Duke.

I understand she's quite well known today for her praise and worship albums. But I will probably always think of her as that mysterious voice that put much of the wind in the sails of my beloved CCM during the golden years of Yacht Rock. And for that—for offering your finely-tuned talent to the Lord and doubtless influencing countless people in a positive way (including little ol' me)—I thank you, Kelly. From the bottom of my heart: thank you, thank you, thank you—a thousand times thank you!
