I remember the first time I went to a concert but EWF was the opening act in Nashville, TN. Had us going and if I not mistaken you were though but the crowd wanted more and you gave. I been in love with group ever since. Marice White what can I say. Every song and lyric he spoke was of love, peace, and well being. I am very thankful that you are continuing the group. My sister and I and a friend, and my six month old baby boy (I didn’t have anyone to keep him) and I remember Verdine playing the drums and he was lifted up in the air and a big cloud of smoke came and Lord have mercy he was playing the bass guitar. So I Juanita Bridgeforth and my sister Connie Brown will be at the October 17 concert. It been so long. oh, bye the way my son is 46 now. God bless you Earth, Wind and Fire. You are a shinning star.
What’s that indescribable thing about an Earth, Wind & Fire record? The secret ingredient was something that Maurice White knew how to do better than anyone else. Maurice knew how to put “love” on tape. You can’t teach it, you can’t imitate it, you can’t force it, but you know when it’s there, because the music fills your heart. Thank you Maurice. As a child, I would stare at the speakers, mesmerized by the magical love that was coming out of the speakers and permeating my heart. The arrangements kept me spellbound. You not only taught me everything I needed to know about music, you shown a light in my heart that would be an addiction that I would pursue for a lifetime. The pursuit of all things love and light. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I’m forever grateful for your contribution to humanity. Your music literally makes the world a better place.
My first concert was at 17. I’m loving the new EWF lineup. “Every Now and Then” a tribute to Maurice White. How we miss his iconic voice. Looking to hear these EWF songs in concert “Guiding Lights, Sign On, My Promise, Love is Law. ” Wonderland, Why, Never. Sooooo many hits we love almost 50 years later! Love you EWF! Gob bless.
His vision of coming together in LOVE is and should be a universal message. Thank you Reese for your contributions!!!
Maurice was love.
Saw Earth, Wind and Fire last night in Illinois. Pure JOY—such a small word but huge concept. Audience members laughing and smiling with their entire souls!
Thank you Earth, Wind and Fire for such a gift to the world. Your music is transcendent—everything else disappears and you’re transported to a place of sheer joy. Maurice White succeeded in his vision to gift the world with something spiritual and joyful.
Every song in the concert made me realize how much positive energy your music has brought to my life for decades. It was an honor to share that joy with the audience! You have made history and we love you!
It was a blessing to hear Maurice and the musicians in the Band. He will be missed, but his Spirit lives on and The memories he helped create are Timeless reminding us to be forever young with happiness and love. Thank you, Peace and Love, Gina from Maryland
So glad to be part of the EWF, Fire Nation global family.
Ase’… Saw EWF tonight in Cleveland Ohio( Northfield)
This was my 1st time ever seeing them perform. OMG!!! Powerful just powerful! The journey the guys took us on was mesmerizing and emotional. All supported on the foundation of LOVE!!! Tears came to my eyes when Phillip told us all to turn on your cell phone flashlight in remembrance and those we have lost. My Dad instantly came to my memory and the tears flowed as they sang. Never heard a band this tight and fluid.This was a treat I will never forget. Rest in Grace Maurice. Thank you.
So many of shows were so godly inspirational. I wish some of your songs could be in joyed in church. I tell people but I don’t think they hear me. I think many more people would love the songs if they just listen to the words and take them to heart. Thanks for all the love I fell when I enjoy your songs. Many thanks and love to you all. Wonder
Maurice was “All About Love “
At the ripe old age of 49, Maurice White and by extension, Earth Wind and Fire wrote the soundtrack of my life. So many songs ministered to my spirit directly and helped form the man and the Being that I am today. Losing Maurice still hurts to this day. A man that I never met in my life, but yet I loved like he was a close family member. I can only thank the Creator for the gift that he gave the world in Maurice. Maurice’s life force may be gone from us physically, but the metaphysical plane of existence that he created that cements the bond in all of us that loved him and his music. Thank you so much Reece. Here I am in 2022 reflecting on your genius and giving thanks for who you were in my life. I know that you, Charles Stepney, Ramsey Lewis, Donny Hathaway, and countless others are having some serious jam sessions up there. It is times like this that I wish heaven were not so far away.
I’m so proud and honored to have been blessed with this man’s incredible music along with the amazing band he put his heart and soul.into starting. Thank you Maurice for everything!!! You truly are a national treasure.
Saw them at Dodgers stadium a few years ago w Fleetwood Mac, journey. It was awesome for my bday. Can’t wait til they come back to Los Angeles. So many memories since I was a kid. Thank u guys(EWF). Love u guys.
I always felt Maurice was a cosmic being who radiated love and shared his genius with the world. HIs music and what it meant to me is beyond description.
Simply the greatest band ever. They have made life worth living
Whenever I feel down I throw in some EWF and I instantly feel better. This is one of the greatest bands ever assembled. The DVD EWF with Chicago is one of the greatest recordings ever captured.
So how does it feel knowing you brought so many people joy throughout the years? I only hope for the remaining members, it was equally joyful.
Blessings to EWF and it’s legacy….. Merry Christmas 2022.
Earth Wind and Fire was the soundtrack of my childhood. At almost 51 years old, I’m still listening, and moved by their music. Thank you for the music Maurice White.
Maurice was a beautiful soul who inspired us all, throughout Earth Planet.
Rest in Peace
