Today we celebrate the 80th birthday of the visionary founder and guiding light behind Earth, Wind & Fire, Mr. Maurice White.
Happy Birthday Maurice! RIH
I applaud all the fans for supporting the music, coming to the concerts, buying the records, and taking the message of the music into their hearts and minds. Those of you who have gone out of your way to let me know that the music touched you, you have brought so much sunshine into my life.
– Maurice White. My Life With Earth, Wind & Fire, by Maurice White with Herb Powell, 2016.
Walk with me, when the stormy nights are cold,
In your hand lies all control.
Master, then when my final song is sung,
With your mercy, I pray that you’ll say well done.
Help them see the light.
– “See The Light,” That’s The Way Of The World, 1975.
