Earth Wind & Fire, “September” the Real, Revision, and Remix

“From my youngest days, I always felt certain affinities with the idea of being a preacher.  Being joyful and positive was the whole objective of our group.  Our goal was to reach all the people and to keep a universal atmosphere.  All of our songs had that positive energy.  To create uplifting music was the objective.”

– founder, Maurice White

 

Many artists are called ahead of their time, but few are called eternal like the music of Earth Wind & Fire  specifically their 1978 mega hit, “September.”  Founder, Maurice White passed away in 2016 but his vision for the group and more importantly its music is as relevant now as it was then.  There is simply no artist today making new music which inspires the same joy and positivity.

But it’s the 21st of September!

In our world fueled by anger and angst, hate and violence, division and destruction, theOUTfront sends out a few minutes of musical joy, positivity, and love to all who will listen… in triplicate.

From the comment section:

“It’s 3 am and I just danced to this so hard in my underwear. I forgot to close the curtains so I think some of my neighbors witnessed me at my greatest form. I don’t even care. This is too gooooood”
