Earth, Wind & Fire are a musical institution. 2020 marked a year-long celebration of their 50th
anniversary in entertainment – one that has taken them all around the globe playing sold out
concerts. In 2019, their contributions to arts and culture were acknowledged in Washington DC
with the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors. The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery also
awarded Earth, Wind & Fire with its Portrait of a Nation Prize.

The band has scored eight number one hits, have sold over 100 million albums worldwide and
released 23 albums. Eight of those albums went Double Platinum and hit the Top 10, making
them one of the best-selling artists of all time. They’ve won an impressive nine Grammy Awards
including one for Lifetime Achievement (2012). In 2000, Earth, Wind & Fire was inducted into
the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, cementing their lasting impact on popular music.

Their achievements are equally matched by their generosity. Over the years the band has
supported various charity organizations including the Make a Wish Foundation, Race to Erase
MS, the American Cancer Society, and the Human Society. In 2007, leader Philip Bailey founded
Music Is Unity, which helps youth in foster care successfully transition into adulthood and provides
music instruments to youth with musical aspirations but lacking the resources. Co- founder,
Verdine White has led important initiatives with the Girls & Boys Club of America and opened
The Verdine White Foundation in Los Angeles as a mecca to serve youth with music scholarships
and other programs.

The music of Earth, Wind & Fire is more alive than ever as they continue to inspire new
audiences and thrill those who have been with them from the beginning. Like the elements in
their name, Earth, Wind & Fire’s music has withstood ever-changing trends in the world and
shows no sign of vanishing as they continue to create joy and uplifting music that will forever
reach a sacred universal atmosphere.
