[Dalvin DeGrate] isn't surprised by the doo-wop resurgence. ``Everybody is going back to real talent, real singing, real soulful R&B. So many people had come out lip-syncing. It's going back now to the roots.'' CUTLINE:READY FOR `TRAIN': Jodeci, from left, `Mr.' Dalvin DeGrate, Joel `JoJo' Hailey, DeVante `Swing' DeGrate and Cedric `K-Ci' Hailey, earned four nominations for tonight's Soul Train Music Awards.
Jodeci ties Boyz II Men and Natalie Cole as top Soul Train nominees (four each). Jodeci, Color Me Badd and Boyz are vying for best group, as well as best single and song.
Swing, who wrote, produced and played the instruments on most of Jodeci's album, has also worked with Al B. Sure! and Tevin Campbell. Sure!, in turn, helped Swing produce Jodeci's album.
