New York - On June 14, 2018, R&B singer and Columbia recording artist Leon Bridges was a part of the Songwriters Hall in Fame in New York.
"It is an honor to be here," Leon Bridges said. "It is crazy that I was exposed to Kool & The Gang through my father, and I always loved their music as a kid. To be here among some amazing songwriters is really incredible."
Speaking of songwriters, Bridges' advice for aspiring songwriters is as follows: "Honestly, just write from the heart. That's really about it."
Bridges defined the word success as "Being able to bless other people around me, and I have had the opportunity to do that, so I feel successful."
A Grammy-nominated musician, Bridges went on to perform an invigorating and infectious version of "Get Down On It," which was well-received by the audience. Bridges went on to induct Robert "Kool" Bell, Ronald Bell, George Brown and James "JT" Taylor (all of which are professionally known as Kool & The Gang) into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, whose musical career has spanned well over five decades.
Following their award, Kool & The Gang performed their perennial classic "Celebration" together for the first time in 25 years. The crowd was with them every step of the way, especially since they got up on their feet, danced and sang along with them.
Good Thing by Leon Bridges is available on iTunes.
