Randy "Ruffin" Williams is on a singular mission. Ever since his youth, Randy has been musically inspired and driven by his dedication to the timeless music of Temptations lead singer, David Ruffin. He became obsessed with David Ruffin's unique vocal style, mesmerized by his ability to convey raw emotion, and connect with listeners on a deeply profound, personal level. Blessed with an extraordinarily flexible voice of his own and raised between the vibrant soul music scenes of West Philadelphia and Willingboro, NJ. Randy immersed himself in the sounds of Motown and the soulful rhythm and blues of the '60s and '70s. He loved it all, but David Ruffin left such an indelible mark on him, that he felt compelled to develop an elaborate stage show as a way to pay tribute to his idol, and to ensure that David Ruffin's unique legacy lives on. Randy spent countless hours studying every nuance of Ruffin's voice, so much so that his own voice became almost indistinguishable from Ruffin's - as if he were channeling him from beyond the grave. Producer Butch Ingram took notice and was duly impressed. He invited Randy to the Society Hill Recording Studios to record a track, backed by the impeccable Society Hill Orchestra, with background vocals provided by Carla Benson, Toni Richards, Sharon Ingram and the Ingram Brothers band. The track chosen was David Ruffin's iconic 1975 hit, "Walk Away From Love," which Randy delivered as if he had written it himself. Prepare to be mesmerized
