    In 1969 Maurice White (19 December 1941 - 4 February 2016) and his brother Verdine, both from Memphis Tennessee, started one of the most successful bands of all time: Earth, Wind and Fire. Over the decades Maurice and EW&F have received numerous Grammys and American Music Awards. Maurice, individually, his band and two of his songs have all been inducted into the Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Fame: "That's the Way of the World" and "Shining Star."
    The world lost a great musical innovator this month and a great poet as well.

    That's the Way of the World, by Verdine White, Maurice White & Charles Stepney

    Hearts of fire creates love desire
    Take you high and higher to the world you belong
    Hearts of fire creates love desire
    High and higher to your place on the throne

    We come together on this special day
    Sing our message loud and clear
    Looking back, we've touched on sorrowful days
    Future pass, they disappear
    You will find peace of mind
    If you look way down in your heart and soul
    Don't hesitate 'cause the world seems cold
    Stay young at heart, 'cause you're never, never old

    That's the way of the world
    Plant your flower and you grow a pearl
    Child is born with a heart of gold
    Way of the world makes his heart so cold

    Hearts of fire create love desire take you
    High and higher to the world you belong
    Hearts of fire love desire
    High and higher, yeah yeah yeah
    Hearts of fire love desire
    Ahh higher

    We come together on this special day
    Sung our message loud and clear
    Looking back, we've touched on sorrowful days
    Future disappears
    You will find peace of mind
    If you look way down in your heart and soul
    Don't hesitate 'cause the world seems cold
    Stay young at heart, 'cause you're never, never, never

    That's the way of the world,
    Plant your flower and you grow a pearl
    Child is born with a heart of gold
    Way of the world makes his heart so cold

    Hearts of fire, love desire
    High and higher, yeah yeah
    Hearts of fire, love desire

    Has always been my favorite of theirs, this and "the reasons"

    "Keep Your Head To The Sky"

    Master told me one day
    I'd find peace in every way,
    but in search for the clue
    wrong things I was bound to do

    Keep my head to the sky
    for the clouds to tell me why
    As I grew with strenght
    Master kept me as I repent

    Keep your head to the sky
    Keep your head to the sky

    Gave me the will to be free
    purpose to live is reality
    Found myself never alone
    changes come to make me strong

    Step right up, be a man
    You need faith to understand
    so we're saying for you to hear
    Keep your head in faith's atmosphere...

    Keep your head to the sky
    Keep your head to the sky
