Legendary R&B group Earth, Wind & Fire, widely renowned for their energetic rhythms, sultry-
classic love songs, feel good vibes and positive and uplifting lyrics, provided an unforgettable magic that
has earned the group six consecutive double platinum albums and more than 40 million album sales just
in the U.S.  The extraordinary band has reaped countless industry accolades, including six Grammy
Awards, an induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, BET’s Lifetime Achievement Award and
ASCAP’s Rhythm & Soul Heritage Award.

Steve Harvey, friend and big fan of Earth,
Wind and Fire for many years introduces them
for their induction into the Hollywood Rock Walk.

Earth, Wind & Fire recently released their first 
new CD in six years, The Promise, featuring the 
group’s unique mix of seasoned professionalism
and contemporary edge, along with the hit single
“All In The Way.”

Earth, Wind & Fire combines the highest standards of  virtuosity with a highly innovative and visionary
approach to showmanship, revolutionizing the art of concert performance with elaborate costumes
and stage effects designed by magician Doug Henning and David Copperfield. Crisp arrangements,
soaring harmonies, impeccable instrumental performances, along with the signature vocal interplay
between Philip Bailey’s highs and Maurice White’s lows, helped establish the group into a worldwide

phenomenon – and the biggest-selling act of any kind in the history of Columbia Records. With a
vibrant sound that crossed generational and demographic lines with such radio mainstays as “Shining
Star,” “Serpentine Love,” “Getaway,” “After The Love Has Gone,” “Mighty, Mighty” and “Fantasy,”
Earth, Wind & Fire, the group became the first black performers to headline throughout the world
without an opening act, to receive Madison Square Garden’s Gold Ticket Award for selling more
than 100,000 tickets and to receive the Columbia Records Crystal Globe Award for selling more
than five million albums in foreign markets.
