Vox Humana is the fifth solo album released by soft rock singer Kenny Loggins. Released in 1985, it was Loggins' first album released after his involvement with the hit soundtrack to the motion picture Footloose, the year prior. The title is from a Latin phrase meaning "human voice."

Among those who make cameo appearances are members of DeBarge, The Pointer Sisters, Philip Bailey, Mr. Mister's Richard Page, Steve George and other artists.

Song information[edit]

"Forever" was written for a short film called Access All Areas produced by Jenny Sullivan (ex-wife of Jim Messina, Loggins' former bandmate). The song was a Top 40 hit in 1985, and continues to be a favorite among Loggins' fans. Some of its success on the charts can be attributed to its use in the soap opera, The Young and the Restless. A live version was recorded on the video for Outside: From the Redwoods but was not included in the album release.

"Love Will Follow" was included as a duet version with singer Shanice on the Kenny Loggins live-concert album "Outside: From the Redwoods."
