House of Zekkariyas: Womack and Womack Transformation to the House of Zekkariyas (Warner Brothers 4-450-75)

Amy Linden, The New York Times, 28 March 1993

THE SINGING group House of Zekkariyas (formerly known as Womack and Womack) has a soul pedigree that runs river deep. Linda Womack is the daughter of the gospel and rhythm-and-blues legend Sam Cooke, while Cecil Womack wrote and performed with his brother Bobby throughout the 60's. As House of Zekkariyas, the husband-and-wife team has made an album overflowing with joyous, modern-day soul. Their understated and deceptively simplistic songs celebrate fidelity, commitment and the daily realities of family life.
