GREATGOLD – 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).
In 2009, President Barack Obama further defined June as African American Music Appreciation Month, declaring the start of summer as a celebration for all the black musicians, composers, singers, and songwriters who have made enormous contributions to our culture. During his administration’s years, President Obama annually renewed the official declaration of what is popularly thought of as Black Music Month.
The 2016 Declaration by President Barack Obama, reads: “Songs by African-American musicians span the breadth of the human experience and resonate in every corner of our Nation — animating our bodies, stimulating our imaginations, and nourishing our souls. In the ways they transform real stories about real people into art, these artists speak to universal human emotion and the restlessness that stirs within us all. African-American music helps us imagine a better world, and it offers hope that we will get there together.”
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.
