There aren’t many artists like The Rev. Al Green. He is a unique figure when it comes to R&B music. A Reverend who not only does Gospel, but one that is more popular for his smooth, sexy love songs!
I remember the first time I went to an Al Green show and it was at the famous Greek Theater in Los Angeles. The one thing that really stood out to me was that there were all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds at the show and everyone had such a great time! It was truly a “we all can get along” moment!
Who can forget the moment when President Obama sang a little Al Green during a speech at a fundraising event. He told his staff he would do it but they didn’t believe. Well guess who was right!
Al Green has so many songs but “let’s Stay Together” seems to be one that has truly stood the test of time. It’s a very simplistic song lyrically, but the meaning far outweighs the simplicity.
It’s time to go back down memory lane on a “Throwback Thursday” night! with a special look back at the 51st Grammy Awards and the legendary Al Green.
