My Life With Earth Wind Fire

My Life With Earth Wind Fire

My Life With Earth Wind Fire

Foreword by Steve Harvey and afterword by David Foster The Grammy-winning founder of the legendary pop/R&B/soul/funk/disco group tells his story and charts the rise of his legendary band in this sincere memoir that captures the heart and soul of an artist whose groundbreaking sound continues to influence music today. With its dynamic horns, contrasting vocals, and vivid stage shows, Earth, Wind & Fire was one of the most popular acts of the late twentieth century—the band “that changed the sound of black pop” (Rolling Stone)—and its music continues to inspire modern artists including Usher, Jay-Z, Cee-Lo Green, and Outkast. At last, the band’s founder, Maurice White, shares the story of his success. Now in his seventies, White reflects on the great blessings music has brought to his life and the struggles he’s endured: his mother leaving him behind in Memphis when he was four; learning to play the drums with Booker T. Jones; moving to Chicago at eighteen and later Los Angeles after leaving the Ramsey Lewis Trio; forming EWF, only to have the original group fall apart; working with Barbra Streisand and Neil Diamond; his diagnosis of Parkinson’s; and his final public performance with the group at the 2006 Grammy Awards. Through it all, White credits his faith for his amazing success and guidance in overcoming his many challenges. Keep Your Head to the Sky is an intimate, moving, and beautiful memoir from a man whose creativity and determination carried him to great success, and whose faith enabled him to savor every moment.

Leaves From Fire

Leaves From Fire

Simcha Guterman's, Leaves from Fire, is a firsthand account written with the deep sense of comprehension he was documenting the fate of his people. Knowing full well that his life was in danger, Simcha chronicled the occurrences of the Holocaust on long scraps of paper, as they happened right before his eyes. The events described take place in Poland, during the first years of World War II. The author stuffed long paper scraps, written in Yiddish, into bottles and hid in them in different places. One of these bottles was discovered after the war. Simcha Guterman's work has been published and translated into eight different languages, receiving high praise from critics. The book's evocative illustrations were drawn by Yaakov Guterman, the author's son.
