Their moving rags-to-riches story features some of the most chart-topping songs of the past quarter-century, including Rhythm is Gonna Get You, 1-2-3, Coming Out of the Dark and the title hit, Get On Your Feet.

Summer Humor
What happens if you throw a red sun hat in the water?
It gets wet! 
Ponder
I believe we can change the world if we start listening to one another again. Simple, honest, human conversation. Not mediation, negotiation, problem-solving, debate, or public meetings. Simple, truthful conversation where we each have a chance to speak, we each feel heard, and we each listen well.
~Margaret J. Wheatley
The Other Side of the Hill Documentary
