How did you find Vocal Downloads? One day, a few years ago, I did an online search for vocal downloads and I found it affordable and user friendly. 2. How has using our vocal samples changed the dynamics of your workflow, budget and the material you produce? At times the samples help me to craft the very title and substance of the song like in “Keep On Believing Praise Remix”. At other times the energy it lends to the song with the strong voices from both male and female artists is like putting good seasoning of food. For a few dollars (and sometimes free bonus downloads) I can have a high quality sound without having to bring an artist into the studio session who may slow my ideas down with human frailties such as being late or doing too many takes etc… 3. Can you tell us what is in the works and what can we expect in the future from Kamal Emanuel? I intend to release a CD, which is currently untitled, of many of my recent singles along with a few previously unreleased songs. I may also add additional tracks by artist who I have been working with as part of our Bless the Mic/Bless the Stage Talent Showcases in NJ. I am also considering providing more service to the ministry as I am a member of Brothers and Sisters Church in Teaneck NJ. He is available to host or MC your show, appear as a featured performer and as an event consultant.
