Live Preview |1/16 The Release Band
January 16, 2021 @ 9:30 pm – 11:30 pm
RELEASE JAZZ BAND 01/16
He had always been the sunlight to us all, he claimed he had many unbelievable successes in his life. After being nominated into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, he wrote many amazing songs that are unparalleled. After recovering from that deadly car accident in 1973, he did not settle down but kept inspiring us all with his music. He always believed love should not just be inspiring us in music but should inspire us to challenge more and more. Stevie Wonder used his strengths to walk out of history and be writing history.
At 12, when he was wearing jackets, jeans, and sunglasses, he was brought to the stage in Apollo theatre. He sat on the chair, adjusted the microphone, and grabbed a bongo. That was 1963, when Motown Records introduced to other people who he was, no one knew. When his fingers rocked the bongo, and when he was lost in his music, he made all of the audience focus on him and him along. With the big band behind him, he made all of us lost in his wonderful music.
He always listens to his heart, whether is destiny, love, or life. His songs do not just display music, but also a visible soul, letting us all to feel his strengths. On 16th of the first month this year, Release Jazz Band will tell us a story about Stevie. In this new year, free yourself and feel the power and strengths Release Band will bring us!
