Tom Brock (born Thomas Jackson Brocker) is an American soul singer, born in Los Angeles. Brock worked with Barry White on the 20th Century Records label in the 1970s.[1] He wrote songs for Gloria Scott's 1974 album What Am I Gonna Do?, including "A Case Of Too Much Love Makin".[1] That same year he also released his one and only album, I Love You More And More, which included a highly popular title track.[2] The album was produced by White and Gene Page.[2] The song "There's Nothing In This World That Can Stop Me From Loving You" was later sampled by producer Just Blaze for the single "Girls, Girls, Girls" on Jay-Z's album The Blueprint.[3] This led to renewed interest in Brock, and in 2003 the album was re-released on CD.[4]
