Description
"Her recording of "It's My Thing (You Can't Tell Me Who to Sock It To)" reached the R&B Top 20. Her song "Unwind Yourself" has been sampled numerous times, most recognisably by DJ Mark the 45 King on his 1987 track "The 900 Number", DJ Chad Jackson on his 1990 hit single "Hear the Drummer (Get Wicked)" (UK #3 in July 1990), and by DJ Kool in his 1996 hit "Let Me Clear My Throat" (UK #6 in March 1997)."

Liner Notes
HERE IS A LITTLE GIRL WITH A GREAT BIG VOICE AND A BIGGER FUTURE. HER STYLE IS ALL HER OWN; HER SOUND DISTINCTIVE AND EXCITING. MARVA WHITNEY IS A BRIGHT YOUNG STAR AND IS DES-TINED TO BE A BIG STAR. THIS, HER SECOND ALBUM IS APTLY TITLED "IT'S MY THING", BECAUSE SOUL IS MARVA'S THING! MARVA WAS IN COLLEGE IN KANSAS CITY SINGING IN LOCAL CLUBS, CHURCHES, AND OTHER SOCIAL GATHERINGS WHEN SHE WENT TO SEE MR. JAMES BROWN. MR. BROWN TALKED TO HER, LIKED HER ATTITUDE AND GAVE HER AN AUDITION WITH HIS BAND. THE REST IS HISTORY . . . MARVA JOINED THE JAMES BROWN SHOW AS FEATURED GIRL VOCALIST REPLACING VICKIE ANDERSON. SHE HAS APPEARED WITH THE GROUP IN CONCERT EVER SINCE, AND ON THE TRIPS TO VIETNAM, AFRICA, AND OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD; IN TALKING ABOUT MARVA WHITNEY AND HER TALENTS ONE HAS TO MENTION HER POWER; HER DRIVING STYLE; HER DEDICATION TO THE STRONG MELODY LINE. BLESSED WITH AN EXCEPTIONAL RANGE, SHE BLENDS PERFECTLY WITH JAMES BROWN ON DUETS; THEY TEAM TOGETHER ON SUNNY IN THIS ALBUM. HER RECENT CREDITS INCLUDE FEATURED APPEARANCES ON THE JOEY BISHOP SHOW, THE STEVE ALLEN SHOW, THE DONALD O'CONNOR SHOW AND OTHERS. DIG THIS GIRL; SHE'S GROOVY; SHE'S A BRIGHT NEW TALENT WHO IS DESTINED TO BE AROUND FOR A LONG TIME. SHE SINGS SOUL; SINGS IT BETTER THAN MOST; PLUS SHE SINGS SOUL WITH JAMES BROWN.
