Hello Everyone,
Just got the terrible news: Our beloved Maurice White, co-Founder of Earth, Wind and Fire has died in his sleep after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease. He was reportedly diagnosed in 1992, and stopped touring with Earth, Wind and Fire in 1994.

Earth, Wind and Fire was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in the year 2000, and Maurice was individually inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2010.

Like fans everywhere, I’m devastated! I just wanted to play this song, one of my favorites from the 70’s: (Hearts Afire) That’s the Way of the World. Hope you’ll just sit back, listen and remember.

That’s the Way of the World (Hearts Afire)
Written by Maurice White, Charles Stepney and Verdine White for Columbia Records

Hearts afire creates love desire
Take you high and higher
To the world you belong

Hearts afire creates love desire
High and higher
To your place on the throne

We’ve come together on this special day
To sing our message loud and clear, hmmm
Looking back we’ve touched on sorrowful days
Future, past, they disappear

You will find (you will find)
Peace of mind (yeah)
If you look way down
In your heart and soul
Ah, don’t hesitate
‘Cause the world seems cold
Stay young at heart
Ah, ’cause you’re never
Never old at heart

Never, never, yeah, yeah

That’s the way (that’s the way)
Of the world (of the world)
Plant your flower (plant your flower)
And you grow a pearl

Child is born
With a heart of gold
Way of the world (oh plant your flower)
Makes his heart so cold

Oh, ho no, yeah, yeah

Hearts afire creates love desire
Take you high and higher
To the world you belong

Hearts afire, love desire
High and higher
You, you, you
Hearts afire, love desire
High and higher

We’ve come together on this special day
We sung a message loud and clear, yeah
Looking back, we’ve touched on sorrowful days
Future disappear

You will find (you will find)
Peace of mind (yeah)
If you look way down
In your heart and soul

Ah, don’t hesitate
‘Cause the world seems cold
Stay young at heart
‘Cause you’re never
Never, never, yeah, yeah

That’s the way, yow
Of the world, yow yeah
Plant your flowers
And you grow a pearl

Child is born (child is born)
With a heart of gold
(With a heart of gold)
Way of the world (way of the world)
Makes his heart grow cold
(Makes his heart grow cold) yeah

Ooh, yeah, never
Ahhh, oh, well
