Prescriptions aren't the only things that Dr. Clarice (Bell) is writing these days. The well-known Atlanta family physician turned songwriter/music producer who co-wrote the recent Boyz II Men "Twenty" album single, "More Than You'll Ever Know", has co-written and placed 2 more songs. This time it's with Grammy nominated R&B/funk legend, Charlie Wilson, on the newly released, "Love, Charlie" album. She says about one of the songs, "One of Mr. Wilson's signature vocal phrases is 'oooh wee'. While in the studio, I ran some concepts by him for the song that's based on that phrase, he liked it, and we finished the song the same day", adding, "It's a fun, mid-tempo groove that's not only about the 'oooh wee' feelings of attraction you get when in a new relationship, but also about the 'oooh, WE' possibilities of where that relationship can go! 'Oooh, WE can rocket up into the sky. Imagine you and me and our desires'!you know, we can make this as fabulous as we want it to be."

Another song co-written by the multi-instrumentalist, Dr. Clarice, on the "Love, Charlie" album is the slow jamming "Whisper", which features R&B royalty and radio personality, Keith Sweat. "I had just recently met Mr. Sweat; it was so cool to later find out that he would be featured on the song", she says. "Mr. Wilson shared with me and the other writers his concept of a song about a guy wanting to whisper in his lady's ear. What I think is cool about the song is the fact that the listening audience never actually hears ALL of what the guy is saying in her ear!so the audience gets to fill in the blanks." She adds, "There are a lot of ways that the guy could have chosen to communicate what he wants to say to his lady! 'I could write it in a letter. I could text your phone. I could hit you up on Twitter 'cause you stay logged on'. But he wants to communicate it AND, at the same time, feel her warmth and take in her aroma!and well!he's gotta whisper in her ear to achieve THAT."

So, what's the doctor taking care of next? "The song; if I take care of the song, the song will take care of me. If I stay present in the moment as each note is played and each new melodic and lyrical phrase is created, I'll continue to enjoy the creative process and enjoy life! (while, on occasion, giving myself permission to fantasize about working with more artists, like Janelle Monae, Aretha Franklin, some pop artists!)! "
