Today, February 4, 2016, Maurice White passed away in Los Angeles, California. At the 18th Annual Grammy Awards, White won Best R&B Vocal Performance, By A Duo, Group or Chorus for his production on ‘Shining Star’ by Earth, Wind & Fire.
The song comes from the funk band’s sixth studio album, “That’s the Way of the World,’ and it’s included on their 1998 “Greatest Hits” album – a compilation by Leo Sacks.
On February 5, 2016, “Greatest Hits” peaked at no. 7 on the American iTunes Albums Chart. People today obviously still crave that good ole’ soul.
‘Shining Star’ has since been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.
