Reach Out I’ll Be There

In 1979 President Jimmy Carter decreed that June would be Black Music Month.  Three decades later in 2009 President Barack Obama revamped the title and declared June African-American Music Appreciation Month.  Each day this month I am turning up the volume on an artist or song brought to you by the letter R.  Enjoy!

Reach Out I’ll Be There – The Four Tops

Whenever I hear this song I think of the ending of the black cinema classic Cooley High.  Run Preach, run!
