Biography

From the hardwood to the boardroom, NBA legend and multimedia mogul Terry Cummings has excelled. Now with the release of his new album, Finally, Cummings steps into the studio and commands the microphone with the same grace he used to race up court for an uncontested slam dunk. As his debut recording effort for the Cummings Entertainment Group proves, he's not just some basketball player turned businessman turned vocalist. Cummings is a gifted selt taught musician. An accomplished keyboardist, a sensitive songwriter and soulful singer, Cummings possesses something that's long missing in today's prepackaged, music scene: passion.

Born in Hammond, Indiana on March 15, 1961 one of (13) children, Cummings overcame challenging surroundings to become a star basketball player at Chicago's Carver High School, DePaul University and in the National Basketball Association from 1982 to 2000. Cummings has played for such franchises as the Clippers, Bucks, Spurs, Sonics, 76ers, Knicks and Warriors, respectively. One of only 8 players in the history of the NBA to play (18) years. Cummings finished his career having scored 19,460 points and pulled down 8,630 rebounds in the incredible 1,183 games.

Most atheletes would have been content to rest on the faded echoes of their accolades. Not Terry Cummings, fulfilling a lifelong dream, he formed Cummings Entertainment Group. A true Renaissance man, Cummings-an ordained minister since the age of 16-has acted, produced, directed and spearheaded many charitable efforts.

Nothing Is What It Seems is a worthy effort very much in the tradition of some of his favorite vocalist: Marvin Gaye, Jackie Wilson, Sam Cooke, Al Green and Gerald Levert. The album is a sublime song cycle performed by a man who has lived a dream. Experience the soul, gospel and jazz essence... it's everything that Terry Cummings is.

Lyrics

All I Want

Written By: Terry Cummings

All I Want
All I want from you is … All I need … to know your mind
Baby girl, you got it … for me…ooh
All I want from you is… some of your time
All I want from you are … the little things
All I want ... that’s all I want
All I want from you is … All I need … to know your mind
All I know is … you got it for me
All I want from you is… some of your time
All I want from you are … the little things
All I want ... that’s all I want
From the moment I saw you, I knew
That something special was going to be
Happening with you, me—ee, that’s when I told myself
Just take my time, let’s not rush, cause she is so special to me
And I don’t want a mess it up
(Refrain)
Why, why do we think we don’t deserve to be in love like others do
We’ve all been hurt, we’ve heard it all,
But love has come let’s take our dues, we pay the price to fall in love
Forget about what past—it’s gone,
Baby, I’m loving you with all I have, and loving you is all I want to know
Lets take it slow, you and I, lets make it spiritual baby, take our time
No need to get physical, I want to know what’s on your mind
Take our time. I’m not typical, you’re all I want
All I want from you is … All I need … to know your mind
Baby girl, you got it … for me…ooh
All I want from you is… some of your time
All I want from you are … the little things
All I want ... that’s all I want
All I want from you is … All I need … to know your mind
All I know is … you got it for me
All I want from you is… some of your time
All I want from you are … the little things
All I want ... that’s all I want
