Celebrating the contributions of African-American artists
Every Thursday in February, Eight Forty-Eight and Radio M host Tony Sarabia and WBEZ's Richard Steele share some deep cuts from the African-American catalog.
This week, they picked five songs, including a James Brown track in which the Godfather of Soul sings partly in Spanish and a Morgan Freeman cut from the kids show The Electric Company.
James Brown, "Please, Please, Please"
Billie Holiday, "You're My Thrill"
Morgan Freeman, "Shoo, Shoo Sunshine"
Hannibal with The Chicago Symphony Orchestra conducted by Daniel Barenboim, "You Can Find a Way", Playing for Change, "Higher Ground"
