of 1970s funk giants Earth, Wind and Fire, came into view at

recipient of the Cultural Achievement Award of Excellence...
"I want to thank you for your support throughout these years,"

30 years and I can't believe that we're still ticking." Apart
from encouraging the audience to "stay in tune with your
heart," White described the inspirations for some of his most
famous songs... "Fantasy," for instance, took three months to
write and was finally finished after he saw the film, "Close
Encounters of the Third Kind.".. Of the party anthem,
"September," White cryptically noted that he wrote it while in
a Washington, D.C. hotel room high above a riot." There is

something may be in the works for Earth, Wind and Fire's
music, similiar to Ray Charles's "Genius likes Company"
compilation? Given the tremendous success of the Mr. Ray
Charles's CD and the partnership with Starbucks and others,
this proved to be a great strategy in marketing and promotion
for sure. "There are a lot of great talents who have been
forgotten by the business and disconnected from their
audience," Burk says. "Our greatest opportunity is taking
those artists and marketing them alternatively to the
mainstream." Next is an album featuring the music of Earth,
Wind & Fire's Maurice White, tentatively titled
