I saw today’s By Special Request artist, Rufus Wainwright, when he opened for Roxy Music during their last reunion tour. His performance of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” is lovely.
Today’s By Special Request group is Tower of Power. I saw the Oakland, Calif., band during a Fleet Week event in 1989. Enjoy!
Today’s By Special Request group is Sons of the Soul Revivers. This gospel group was started by cousins Walter, James, and Dwayne Morgan when Walter was only nine years old. The boys’ fathers had a gospel quartet they called the Soul Revivers, so the kids called themselves the Sons of the Soul Revivers.
I always think there is something magical about familial harmonies, and the Morgan men are no exception. Enjoy!
In honor of those who never returned from the wars …
