American music would be sort of bland without the enormous contributions made by African-Americans throughout our history. No real Jazz and no Blues and certainly no Soul music.

This weekend’s music thread is all about the wonderful influence that Afro-Americans have had and still have on music. So pick your favorites from any genre of music by the many, many very talented and expressive Afro-American musicians and singers. As always, don’t forget to smile while doing so! 😉

This was really fun KT, too bad I had to leave early, a veritable treasure trove of excellent music. I enjoyed watching many of the videos, see you again next weekend. 🙂
