One of the most famous and popular entertainers of the 20th century, Maurice White left an enduring legacy in his creation of Earth, Wind & Fire, this genre-transcending group who earned multiple Grammy Awards and most recently a Lifetime Achievement Award.

Completed before his recent death, Maurice opens up in My Life with Earth, Wind & Fire about his struggles, his big breaks, and the founding of a band that would forever change music. White's love of music began when he was still a boy in South Memphis, learning to play the drums with Booker T. Jones and supporting his mother with a modest paper route. From there he would go on to train at the Chicago Conservatory of music and finally creating Earth, Wind & Fire in Los Angeles, writing and recording the hits that live on in our cultural conscience.

My Life with Earth, Wind & Fire is intimately moving and beautiful in its breadth of Maurice White's inspiring life. Here was a man whose creativity and determination carried him to great success, and whose faith enabled him to find music in every moment.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"White's book is practically a how-to manual for leading a band... Aspiring musicians could certainly learn a lesson or two."--New York Times Book Review
"My Life with Earth, Wind & Fire is the candid and intimate odyssey of a man whose music and ideology continues to have an immeasurable influence on artists and audiences worldwide."--Philadelphia Inquirer
"[The] musical elements [of Earth, Wind & Fire] would not have existed without the singular drive of Maurice White. And his words here provide one magical, mystery tour."--Houston Press
"[A] powerful and substantial memoir... The book is more than a chronological tale of a career; it's a quest for meaning... The memoir captures a life of determination, positivity, and success tempered by depth and humility."--Publishers Weekly
