EARTH WIND & FIRE - SHINING STAR
Shining Star is a song off the soundtrack of the unsuccessful 1975 film That's The Way of the World. The soundtrack to the film was recorded by Earth Wind & Fire, who appeared in the film as a music group being produced by star Harvey Keitel. The album was a major hit for Columbia Records, and it was the first R&B album to top the US Pop charts and the US Album charts at the same time. Major record labels took notice to the album's success, which showed that Black bands could sell albums and not just singles. Shining Star was the only song from Earth Wind & Fire to hit #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, and the hit song also topped the Hot Soul Songs chart at the same time. Because of the popularity of the song, the film That's The Way of the World was rereleased with the title Shining Star.
