Legendary music group Earth, Wind & Fire will take the stage at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Oct. 14. Earth, Wind & Fire is a musical institution. 2020 marked a year-long celebration of their 50th anniversary in entertainment – one that has taken them all around the globe playing sold-out concerts.
“You Want My Love” is only the fifth song this year to reach the top 10 in one month. R&B icons Earth, Wind and Fire reach the top 10 of Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay chart for the first time in 28 years as their new single “You Want My Love,” featuring rising R&B talent Lucky Daye, improves 12-9 on the chart dated Sept. 18. The song ascends through a 47% boost in plays in the week ending Sept. 12, according to MRC Data, to become the ninth most-played song this week on monitored U.S. adult R&B-centered stations. The 47% gain, meanwhile, is the largest percentage point jump for any of the chart’s 30 songs.
Although the band Earth, Wind, & Fire made their own records with songs like “September” ranking No. 8 on Billboard’s Hot Top 100 chart in 1978, July 2021 will go down in the history books as the hottest month on record, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. July also reigns supreme for rainiest month in many regions of the U.S., including Massachusetts, according to NOAA’s National Climate Report. The band derived its name from nature: Greek philosophy postulated that the universe was made up of four elements: earth, air (wind), fire, and water.

Thanks for a Great August, Welcome to the Fall Season, and, of Course “September” (Thanks to Earth, Wind & Fire)
Showbiz411.com had a great August, thanks to everyone who read and clicked and chimed in. Now comes the fall season, and even if it’s still not what it’s supposed to be, we always start September with this song. One of the great pleasures of writing this site and meeting up with music pals is knowing Verdine White, Philip Bailey and Ralph Johnson of Earth Wind & Fire. There are no better people. Their music (all credit due to Verdine’s late great brother Maurice) is magic. How can you not love the group that gave us “Let’s Groove Tonight,” “Shining Star,” “Keep You Head to the Sky,” and the one song I know every sound in and word of, “That’s the Way of the World.” (I told Philip last week there’s a 10 state ban on me singing it in public!)
I don’t think September gets enough credit. It’s the first of those “-ber” months, but we tend to pass right over it in favor of October’s fabulous foliage, November’s holiday of thankfulness, December’s red and green holly jolliness. Then we start over again with the two “-ary” months, followed by the five months almost too short to abbreviate, and then August.
The Superior Court of Connecticut, Judicial District of Stamford-Norwalk at Stamford, recently granted summary judgment in favor of a title insurer, finding that the insured was not entitled to defense costs where the underlying lawsuits did not concern matters on which the title insurer had a duty to defend. See Stewart v. Old Republic Nat'l Title Ins. Co., 2021 WL 3832354 (Conn. Super. Ct. Aug. 10, 2021). In 2013 and 2014, the plaintiffs acquired ownership of neighboring properties in Greenwich, Connecticut and obtained owner’s title insurance policies. In 2016, adjacent property owners brought an action against the plaintiffs alleging that the plaintiffs obstructed an easement by extending a lawn, installing a raised drainage system and removing a stone pillar (the “Kennedy Lawsuit”). Without notifying its title insurer, the plaintiffs engaged counsel to defend the lawsuit. Six months later, after the property owners filed a revised Complaint alleging that the plaintiffs did not have exclusive ownership of or exclusive rights to the easement, the plaintiffs notified the title insurer that the lawsuit was pending and that the plaintiffs may have a claim. The title insurer denied coverage and concluded that it had no obligation to defend the lawsuit for a number of reasons, including that the policy did not insure the plaintiffs’ exclusive rights to and ownership of the easement, the plaintiffs did not have exclusive ownership of the easement, the plaintiffs’ conduct was the cause of the lawsuit, and the events at issue occurred after the issuance of the policy.

One day after releasing their reimagined version of “You Want My Love,” beloved funk-soul group Earth, Wind and Fire hit the Central Park stage with Babyface and R&B singer Lucky Daye to perform the song live at New York’s We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert. “This project has been fantastic to work on,” Babyface said earlier this week. “We really wanted to bring a tremendous, iconic song that is unmistakably Earth, Wind & Fire into the contemporary world of Lucky Daye. The goal was to create a reimagined version of this classic song that reflects Lucky’s unique voice and musical style, while still honoring the original.” The group brought their trademark ebullient, joyous vibe for the track, which acted as a warm-up to “September.” That song — arguably the group’s biggest hit — bridged grandparents, parents and kids at a show that featured a cross-generational hit list of artists, including Paul Simon, the Killers, Polo G, Patti Smith, Bruce Springsteen, Journey, Kane Brown, Jennifer Hudson, Cynthia Erivo, Elvis Costello, LL Cool J, Jon Batiste and Andrea Bocelli.

For generations of R&B fans, Earth, Wind & Fire have been an elemental force in the soundtrack of their lives. And 50 years after the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band — founded by the late Maurice White — dropped its self-titled debut, EWF is still making us groove to ’70s classics such as “Shining Star,” “Boogie Wonderland” and, of course, “September.”
Earth, Wind & Fire teamed up with legendary producer Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds for a reimagined version of the R&B group’s hit “Can’t Hide Love,” now titled “You Want My Love.” The fresh spin on the 1976 single was co-written by singer Lucky Daye, who also features on the track. Earth, Wind & Fire’s Philip Bailey said in a statement, “I am super hyped about this all-star collaboration — Earth, Wind & Fire, Lucky Daye, and Kenny ‘Babyface’ Edmonds producing. It was an honor to join forces with these two superstars, and I truly believe we’ve created a winner all the way.” “This project has been fantastic to work on,” Babyface added. “We really wanted to bring a tremendous, iconic song that is unmistakably Earth, Wind & Fire into the contemporary world of Lucky Daye. The goal was to create a reimagined version of this classic song that reflects Lucky’s unique voice and musical style, while still honoring the original.” The artists involved will debut the song live during Earth, Wind & Fire’s set at the upcoming all-star We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert on August 21st.

Sixteen years ago, a young man from Louisiana by the name of David Brown stopped by American Idol to sing a rendition of Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come.” Impressing the judges, Brown took his talents to Hollywood and beyond before being knocked out in the round of 20. Fortunately, that didn’t stop his dreams from coming true.
