In Brief

*** Puff Johnson, "Miracle," Work.

September 29, 1996|Connie Johnson

Johnson doesn't write love songs for cynics. There's a sweeping romanticism to this 22-year-old's music, in which she compares loved ones to miracles and angels. In the hands of a Celine Dion or Mariah Carey, ballads such as "Forever More" would have been wrung free of every ounce of drama. Johnson's more subtle treatment gives her often lofty and ethereal ideas about the search for one's soul mate some down-to-earth realism and charm.
