Two-Stepping, Ballads, Funk + Jazz All In One

Sunday, April 11

Earth, Wind & Fire and The Isley Brothers were recently featured in the webcast series Verzuz. It’s an incredibly popular friendly music “battle” on social media created by producers Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. Coming up on Soulsations, we’ll share hits from the two legendary bands. Plus, a new two-stepping tune from The Isley Brothers featuring Snoop Dogg, classics from Chaka Khan and The Bar-Kays, and an engaging ballad from Shelea. We’ll also “Get Up For The Downstroke” with a funky DoubleTake from Parliament and jazz band BWB.

Here's the official music video for "Friends and Family" by The Isley Brothers featuring Ronald Isley and Snoop Dogg:
