My Song, My Story: Kool & the Gang

Kool & the Gang has sold over 70 million albums worldwide and influenced the music of three generations. Thanks to songs like "Celebration," "Cherish," "Jungle Boogie," "Summer Madness" and "Open Sesame," they've earned two Grammy Awards, seven American Music Awards, 25 Top-10 R&B hits, nine Top-10 Pop hits, and 31 gold and platinum albums. Kool & the Gang have performed continuously for the past 35 years, longer than any R&B group in history. Their bulletproof funk and tough, jazzy arrangements have also made them the most sampled band of all time. My Song, My Story offered an in-depth profile of the band's beginnings and its evolution over its highly successful three-and-a-half decades. It also revealed how even today, the band continues to tour and connect with new and old fans. My Song, My Story included interviews with the artists, their colleagues and family members, and features archival tape and music.
