Happy Birthday Frankie Beverly!

by James Hill

December 6, 2016

Today, we recognize Funk/R&B singer Frankie Beverly for creating what is probably the most universal Black club experience in the world.

You know what it is.

At exactly 2:07 into “Before I Let Go,” the DJ is sworn by God and country to cut the speakers and let the crowd sing in unison “GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!”

And for this we extend a hearty 70th Birthday wish to the man (and the band) who made it all possible.
