Posted on 06 February 2016 by The Florida Star Online

Maurice White, the founder and lead singer of Earth, Wind & Fire, has died.

A former session drummer, White founded Earth, Wind & Fire in the late 1960’s. The group went to sell more than 90 million albums worldwide.

White was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in the late 1980’s, which led him to eventually stop touring with Earth, Wind & Fire in 1994. However, White retained executive control of the band, and remained active in the music business.
