JIMMI TUNNEL, AND IN MY OPINION HE COULD OF BEEN ONE OF THE BEST VOCALISTS IN FREESTYLE IF HE WOULD OF TOOK ON A SOLO CARREER, AS A MATTER OF FACT I HAD JUST PICKED UP HIS ONLY SOLO PROJECT A FEW DAYS AGO CALLED 'ALL OR NOTHING"..
THE TRACKS HE DID VOCALS ON SHOULD HAVE BEEN REALLY CALLED DUETS WITH SHANNON, MONET,ETC.. BUT NEVER GOT THE CREDIT HE RIGHTFULLY DESERVED

my sentiments exactly. check out his website at jimitunnell.com I emailed him, praising his talent. maybe he will return to freestyle if he hears from some more fans!

I just found this out recently myself and could not beleive that it was a man singing, I always thought it was a woman. I was further shocked when I came to realize that he had a part in so many great Freestyle songs. I agree he certainly is a great talent and a huge (unrecognized) part of freestyle. Thanks for the website info, it was interesting getting to find out more info on Jimi.

hey lamondfan check out Jimi on Distant Heart by George Lamond. the song opens with Jimi singing solo! also take a listen to Like a Child by Noel that "female" you thought singing background is in fact Jimi Tunnell. just goes to show what makes a great singer is the incredible range

Love him!
He's always helped make them Chris Barbosa/Mark Liggett records sound more flavorful. I always thought the backing vocals on those records were done by both Jimmi & a female vocalist.

Yeah I read it earlier, ..it's kool. :)
I figured it was him on those records too since I have never heard anyone else that sounds like him, & many of these records he's worked on have that classic Freestyle "Ligosa/Ligosa-ish" sound. (LOVE IT!)
