In 1969, music legend Maurice White created a band named after the elements from his very own astrological charts. 50 years later, Earth, Wind & Fire is a music institution.
With timeless songs and commitment to spreading positivity, Earth, Wind & Fire has consistently made music that bridges the gap between all generations and nationalities. With a sound that blends funk, jazz, pop, soul and R&B, the band launched a musical genre that can’t be confined to a specific label except their own. Their record-breaking success has earned them an impressive nine Grammy Awards, including one for Lifetime Achievement (2012), eight Double Platinum albums, induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the Lifetime Achievement honors from ASCAP, NAACP and BET.
The music of Earth, Wind & Fire is more alive than ever. From fans to fellow artists, the group continues to inspire new audiences and influence musicians across generations and genres, all while thrilling those who have been with them since the beginning. Like the elements in their name, Earth, Wind & Fire’s music has endured ever-changing trends in the world and shows no sign of vanishing as they continue to create joy and uplifting music that will forever reach a sacred universal atmosphere.
