"The catalytic force behind Patrick Charles's debut album, Cite Soleil, is Charlene. Patrick wrote this one for his sister at her passing. Arranged by Patrick Charles & Kevin Toney, Charlene exudes powerful emotion as Mr. Toney ekes a song ...of joy & gratitude from those keys. Patrick's sister had always been a pillar in his life; a prominent supporter of his creative art. The track opens with a bri...ef movement of longing & sorrow which quickly transitions into joyfully spacious embraces…..It is the perfect track to end this album; as if Patrick were saying "Look at me! I am here now; thank you so much." From this reviewer's point of view, Charlene is the most intimate of tracks on this brilliant album"..Chris Drake
