from JORDAN HILL

written by David Foster & Brian McKnight

Jordan Hill’s 1996 ballad, “Until The End Of Time,” is the only writing collaboration between David Foster and r&b star Brian McKnight to make it on record. These two gifted music-makers have crossed paths in concert and the recording studio. McKnight claims fame for big hits like “Back At One,” “Love Is” (with Vanessa Williams) and “One Last Cry.” McKnight has always mentioned Foster as a mentor and inspiration as well as being a fixture on the Hitman’s famous Foster & Friends touring franchise.

Ms. Hill was signed by Foster for her impressive voice, style and looks that fit in the Mariah Carey pop/r&b/ac “diva” cliche of the era. “Until The End Of Time” found its way onto Ms. Hill’s self-titled debut cd for Foster’s 143 Records. Given the golden touch of its top-notch co-writers, “Until The End Of Time” was a great showcase of adult contemporary bravura with perfect melodic pleasure, catchiness and dramatic power in its musical development. On “Until The End Of Time,” the young singer delivered the goods and was joined by the warm baritone voice of Delious Kennedy, founding member of the r&b vocal quartet All-4-One. The vocal interplay between the two young performers was really impressive. They blended the harmonies with powerful crescendos and “money notes” on the song’s commanding climax. Foster’s elegant arrangement was based on various keyboards and programmed percussions which served Ms. Hill and Delious perfectly. The final result was a tender love ballad that was total nirvana for adult contemporary lovers.

 Jordan Hill was chocked-full of classy, adult contemporary material as well as pop ditties and r&b goodies. Check out past reviews of the hit ballad “Remember Me This Way” that can be heard onJordan Hill and on the soundtrack of Casper. Also read and hear the danceable hit single “For The Love Of You” for more insight on the Jordan Hill cd.

Lyrics

Looking at you, I can’t believe that it’s true
I’ve got someone who’s crazy over me
Here and now, I am sure that I’ve found
What true love is and what love should to be

When you hold me then I know
That’s where I belong and I don’t want
To let you go
Nowhere in this world I’d rather be

You and I, can’t deny, we can’t deny
Heaven’s here between your lips and mine
I promise I, I will never say good-bye
It’s you and me ’til the end of time

It’s just enough, all I’ve ever dreamed of
The love I pray for before I go to sleep
Just in time I never thought that I would find
Another reason to give all of me

When you hold me then I know
That’s where I belong and I don’t want
To let you go
Nowhere in this world I’d rather be

You and I, can’t deny, we can’t deny
Heaven’s here between your lips and mine
I promise I, I will never say good-bye
It’s you and me ’til the end of time

You are the air that I breathe
I’ve seen all that I need to see
Finally I know
Love is what used to be when
I don’t and I won’t have to spend
Another night alone
You don’t have to be alone

You and I, can’t deny, we can’t deny
Heaven’s here between your lips and mine
I promise I, I will never say good-bye
It’s you and me ’til the end of time
It’s you and me ’til the end of time
It’s you and me ’til the end of time
