Overview:

Shining Star: Braving the Elements of Earth, Wind & Fire : With some ninety million records sold and eight Grammy Awards over the course of its forty-year history, Earth, Wind & Fire has staked its claim as one of the most successful, influential, and beloved acts of our time. Never before had a group crossed so many styles and genres when EWF exploded into the public's consciousness in the 1970s. Its charismatic founder Maurice White, and Philip Bailey, with his soaring multi-octave range and distinctive falsetto, were two remarkable musical talents who produced a landmark series of platinum and gold albums and headlined stadium shows around the world. In Shining Star, Bailey chronicles his professional and spiritual journey to becoming one of the greatest voices in popular music: from his origins as an aspiring Denver percussionist to his being recruited to join EWF, the band's meteoric rise to stardom, its breakup, and its triumphant reunion, realizing a newfound success with generations of music lovers.
