They also performed new songs from their new album: Now, Then and Forever. The three remaining original members of EWF for over 42 years shut the house down!
Verdine White brought his electric energy on the bass guitar; Philip Bailey wowed the audience with his powerful four-octave range while Ralph Johnson kept the crowd going with his smooth suave moves!
During an intimate interview with fans aboard the Soul Train Cruise, the super group talked to us candidly about Maurice White’s condition and one of Don Cornelius’ biggest regrets. As Philip stated, “We are at home, so we can talk like this, right?”
The crowd assured him that indeed he was, so he did. We found out the real reason they didn’t perform on Soul Train as well as their original thoughts behind their most requested song September.
The three were so down to earth with their fans. Their performance was a great experience! Everyone danced in the aisles while an overly excited older woman with a lot of spunk nearly put one of their vocalists in a half-nelson! Philip’s son was another vocalists and he gave a spectacular performance with his dad! They even performed songs from their new album which has a great sound.
“We make these albums for you all. We have new songs on our album, but what we love about this new record, it that is sounds like Earth, Wind & Fire,” said Verdine White.
If you missed them on the Soul Train cruise, be sure to visit: www.earthwindandfire.com for tour dates and concerts! As our associate, LaCora Stephens agreed with Philip:
“This was a rare occasion to be so close and personal with the mega-group! Seeing the love among the three was a sight to behold … true icons!”
