New video premiere on YouTube

No Comments

Last week I got a call from living soul legend, William Bell about a new video an associate of his had made of a song he and I recorded on my latest album (Silver Lining). The song is PEOPLE GET READY, the classic originally written and recorded by Curtis Mayfield.

The song became an anthem for hope and civil rights in the sixties and both William and I feel this song is as relevant today as it was then and wanted to share it with you. So collectively we have decided to world premiere it on my YouTube channel on Saturday May 2nd at 12pm PDT (3pm EDT) Click on this link:
People Get Ready Video Premiere

Here is a statement from William:
” This iconic song, written by my good friend, the late great Curtis Mayfield, couldn’t be more relevant than now during these uncertain times ”
William Bell

I hope you will join us on Saturday on my YouTube channel as William and I will watch it with you and ready to answer your questions and comments, and feel free to subscribe to my channel while you are there!
See you Saturday!
