    The great Nancy Wilson once said this of Regina Belle...she said, Regina Belle is an artist whose talent far exceeds the material she is recording. If you don't believe that Nancy is right...listen to any of her albums, but especially LAZY AFTERNOON...Regina's talent is phenomenal!!! And that's all I need to say...

    The "Believe In Me" is a solid Pop/R&B album album! It is serious slept on! My absolute favourite songs from the album are "Teach Me How To Live", "Come See About Me", "Believe In Me", "I Got It" and "I'm The One'"!
