Quiana Lynell Wants to Share ‘A Little Love’: Exclusive Premiere
By: Gail Mitchell

One mark of a gifted singer is how well he or she can reinterpret a classic composition and make it their own. The classic in this instance is the ’60s-era song “Just a Little Lovin’ (Early in the Mornin’).” Penned by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, it’s been covered by a slew of stars from Dusty Springfield, Tina Turner and Barbra Streisand to Ray Charles, Carmen McRae and Sarah Vaughan.
