from ON AND ON

written by  Diane Warren

In 1999, Pop/R&B group All 4 One released their third album entitled “On And On.” The popular vocal quartet collaborated with David Foster who produced the amazing one-two punch of their previous top hits “I Swear” and “I Can Love You Like That.”

Foster’s trademark arrangements on these two ballads served the singers perfectly and established All 4 One as a leading vocal combo of the nineties. The result of their work for “On and On” produced a delicate, elegant ballad entitled “I Will Be Right Here.”

Written by hit-maker Diane Warren, “I Will Be Right Here” is a beautifully conceived song with sweet-as-candy vocals, a memorable refrain and top notch production. “I Will Be Right Here” was the first single from “On And On.” Although it reached #24 on the Adult Contemporary Chart, the song should have charter a lot higher given its radio-friendly potential.

Mostly produced by the band’s old collaborator Tim O’Brien, “On And On” followed the footsteps of All 4 One’s previous albums with a mix of Adult Contemporary stuff and light Urban material. Among the other shining moments are the ballad, “I Cross My Heart” co-written by Frank J. Myers and Gary Baker of “I Swear” fame and the up-tempo opener, “Keep It Goin’ On,” with legendary Nile Rodgers of Chic fame as another guest producer.

Last month, All 4 One was among the guests for the new David Foster Hitman show in Las Vegas. They performed their most loved hits accompanied by the super-producer.

Lyrics

wherever you go, whatever you do,
whenever you need me
how can i say how much you’ve done for me
how much i have just knowing i had you
you touched my world
and i’ll never be the same
you touched my heart
and know everything has changed
you are the one in this life i’ll remember

wherever you go
whatever you do
wherever you are
my heart is with you
no matter how far i’ll always be near
whenever you need me
i will be right here

there’ll always be a part of you with me
i hope there’ll be a part of me with you
oh baby just call my name
and i’ll here you on the wind
just close your eyes
and i’ll find you once again
just know i’m on your side and remember

wherever you go
whatever you do
wherever you are
my heart is with you
no matter how far i’ll always be near
whenever you need me
i will be right here

and when the wind touches you
it will touch me too
and the same star you see
will be the one that shines on me
i’ll be here when you need me
i’ll be here any time
baby i’m on your side so remember

wherever you go
whatever you do
wherever you are

wherever you go
whatever you do
wherever you are
my heart is with you
no matter how far i’ll always be near
whenever you need me
i will be right here
i will be right here
i will be right here
