[pullquote quote="I've known Paul forever. And Will Lee and some of those guys have played on my records over the years, so it's going to be great to go on there, it's going to be fun." credit="B.J. Thomas"]Thomas’s latest album, Once I Loved, is a collection of Brazilian-style pop and is available from the newly upgraded BJThomas.com. Featuring such songs as “The Girl From Ipanema,” it’s a salute to a country that’s been BJ’s most successful overseas market. He said [photogallerylink id=21169 align=left]that “Rock and Roll Lullabye“ which he re-made with a samba on the new album — was the theme of one of Brazil’s top soap operas.
