Inner Child is the second studio album from one of the most underrated R&B singers of the past 30 years, Shanice Wilson. Released in 1991 when she was 18 years old, the album is a mix R&B jams and heartfelt ballads. The album includes the biggest hit of her solo career, the infectious I Love Your Smile. The song is considered a classic, reaching for 4 weeks on the Billboard R&B charts and on the Billboard Hot 100. The CD also features her hit R&B ballads, I'm Cryin' and Slient Prayer (featuring Johnny Gill on backing vocals.
Shanice sure has an impressive voice, including the ability to sing falsetto a la Mariah Carey and Minnie Riperton. In fact, Shanice performs a version of Riperton's "Lovin You," which is somewhat faithful to the original. Fortunately, even though Shanice was just a teenager when she recorded this album, she doesn't overindulge in the falsetto like Carey did on her early releases. Unfortunately, she does overindulge in rapping, which is not her particular strength
