BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY : AFRICAN AMERICAN " MIKI HOWARD " R&B SINGER WITH BILLBOARD TOP TEN SINGLE AND NUMBER ONE SINGLES : GOES INTO THE " HALL OF BLACK GENIUS "
BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY
After leaving Side Effect, Howard signed a deal with Atlantic. Her first hit for the label was the Billboard R&B Top Ten single "Come Share My Love." She followed that with the remake of Glenn Miller's 1940 hit "Imagination." Her success continued with two more Top Ten singles, "Baby Be Mine" and "That's What Love Is." The latter was a duet with Gerald Levert and was the result of the creative union Howard formed with Marc Gordon and Levert. Howard and Levert later became romantically involved, and that romance spawned one of Howard's biggest hits, "Love Under New Management." The song was written during their brief love affair, but was released after their romance had dissolved.
