“We lift our voices in honor of those whose voices have been silenced. When people become iconic in death, we fail to appreciate the great loss of happy, loving moments. Their joy and laughter are forgotten,” said Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr.named by Clive Davis as “Pop and Soul’s First Couple”, in a joint statement. “The theme of our project is that civil rights are human rights…in this history month, we share it with all our brothers and sisters. This music is for the stupid love songs our ‘blackbirds’ of all colors will never be able to sing.”
