God bless you, Ms. Allen! I sincerely
hope you're doing splendidly! Since
high school in '73, "Can I?" has been
etched into my soul. Thank you for
such an infinitely beautiful song.
God be with you, all your family and friends.

Aunt Velma,
Supreme as usual. I play one of your sample albums to my kids to show what writing, composing, and musicality is all about. Always a joy to hear your sweet soulful voice. "Sandye"

I have listened to your early songs and I just finished listening to your CD "Bluesin'In The Big Easy", and found it was like time traveling. Thanks for the wonderful songs, and thanks for that great voice. J

Dear Vee Allen:

I have searched for years to find the original version of "Can I" in record shops that specialized in oldies but goodies records and on-line. I could not find that song that I remembered so well when I was in grade school. I love that song! Eddie Kendricks made a remake but it wasn't the same. I took another look on and there it was! A 2007 remake that you did. Of course, I bought the song right away and I have been playing it ever since! You still sound great! Is there anyway I can obtain the original version? Let me know when you will appear in the Chicago area.

Love your website and your songs on YouTube. Now you need a Facebook page. Miss hearing you sing in person.

Ms. Allen, your music is an inspiration to me. Because of your sweet melodious voice, i've come into my own realization that love; real love is possible. May God bless you always!!

Hi Ms. Allen:

This is the first time that I have visited your site. I hope you can help me. I have been on a quest for so long (seems like an eternity) to find a song that I loved as a teen back in the early 1970s. I finally found a site that list you as a singer of the song "Trying to forget" I listen to one of your songs on youtube and your voice sounds a lot like the voice I remember. The lyrics I remember are " I walk alone every day and I keep hoping you'll pass my way....etc, Looks like tomorrow's another day, if you were with me baby I wouldn't feel this way, trying to forget, but I haven't done it yet. I guess I'll have a drink, smoke another cigerette and think about the man, I'm trying to forget. Is this your song? Please respond, Thank you, Andrea

My woman for life! Velma is a world class artist who just didn't need o sing. She was so multi-talented it afforded her so many avenues to success. To her, I always thought that singing just wasn't prestigious enough to devote her whole life to it. I selfishly differed because I love the artist in her. On any stage, she's a standout. I sincerely missed a lot in my life. FREDDIE

Dear Ms. Allen:

For years, I have wondered whether you were still recording. I am delighted that you have a new release and cannot wait to hear it.

However, I remember a simply beautiful release from the 70s that I have been lookng for that was played on WVON in Chicago. I believe it was entitled: I Can't Let You Go. Some of the lyrics are as follows:

I live and breathe everyday for you
Wherever you lead I will go
But this one thing you're asking me to do
I must say no
I can't let you go my love
I can't set you free
Anything else I'll do
I want so much to please you...

This lovely tune has remained in my head for years. I would love to have a copy of it. Is it available?

Thank you for your wonderful music!
