Raven Simone is no longer the cute little girl she played on Cosby – even though she’s still adorably cute – but she’s transitioned her little girl sass into some real sexy soulfulness on her album This Is My Time, a production that some consider to be her “best album yet.” The sound still sticks to her R&B/Pop roots, but there’s a mature edge to it that was lacking from previous contributions. Some reviewers state that “every song on the album is musically pleasant to listen to,” and an added benefit is that parents and listeners alike don’t have to worry about Parental Advisories while listening to her powerful voice. And when you listen to the lyrics of the title track you definitely know that this talented young lady is all grown up: Oh, At times I felt like I had lost my self Cuz people try to make you someone else I had to learn to trust my heart So things can change I came to a point Where I can speak my mind And not feel I’m living in a box To keep the girl I am concealed Oh I finally found the strength so I can Leave that all behind [Chorus:] This is my time, to shine This is my place to find All that I have inside I never knew This is my time to show What I must have always known That nothings impossible And dreams come true Everybody’s got the strength inside All it takes is time to realize That you and only you Can be the one to decide I can, I will, I know that everything I want I can do Believing in my self Then every wish I make will come true Oh, Satellite TV, It took a while to get this far But I’m here now [Chorus:] This is my time, to shine This is my place to find All that I have inside I never knew This is my time to show What I must have always known That nothings impossible And dreams come true Overcoming all these things Here I finally found my wings Now I know I’m ready to fly…….. [Chorus:] This is my time, to shine This is my place to find All that I have inside I never knew This is my time to show What I must have always known That nothings impossible And dreams come true
