From Earth, Wind & Fire’s 1993 release Millennium, here’s the music video for “Sunday Morning,” co-written by Sheldon Reynolds. RIH Sheldon
“Sunday Morning” earned a GRAMMY nomination for Best R&B Vocal Performance By A Duo Or Group.
In late 1992 we started recording our next album, Millennium. In my mind Millennium was supposed to be Earth, Wind & Fire’s last album, and in many ways it is. I saw it as symbolic that EW&F’s career would end where it started, at Warner Bros. I wanted to conclude Earth, Wind & Fire’s recording career in a manner that was respectful to our musical legacy. For the most part Mo Ostin gave me complete creative freedom; the whole idea was that this was to be a return to the classic EW&F sound. And I achieved some of that on the album.
