AT GREATGOLD WE RECOGNIZE AND CELEBRATE the many contributions to, and influences on, all popular music that Black Music Artists have made throughout history. We especially recognize those contributions during Black Music Month, as we do everyday in our playlist, which always includes the Best of Black Music Artists. Our recognition continues 24/7/365. The music artists pictured on the Black Music Month album collage are just some of the many black singers and musicians in our Classic Hits Mix from a portion of our regular playlist.
To attest to the influence and contributions to society by Black Music Artists, many of the world’s prominent non-black musicians have paid tribute to their admiration of early music by Black Artists through borrowing from the songs and styles to become what they, themselves, are today. President Carter started the recognition of Black Music Month in 1979. Other presidents have followed that lead, since, including President Barack Obama in his declaration for African American Music Appreciation Month (popularly called Black Music Month).
Black Music Month gained national recognition in 1979 when music business leaders and insiders successfully lobbied President Jimmy Carter to host a reception on June 7th, 1979 to formally recognize the cultural and economic contributions of music created by black music artists. Since 1979, Black Music Month has grown from a small commemoration to national proportions with events held annually across the country.
JUNE ALSO BRINGS THE SUMMER MONTHS and our tradition of playing Summer Songs at least once every hour throughout the Summer Time begins anew this month at GREATGOLD, the Home of GreatGoldHits and ClassicHitOldies.
