Peace Be Still

This week’s video is a stirring performance of Peace Be Still by 1970s Chicago born and raised soul trio The Emotions. This performance was a part of Wattstax, a live celebration in L.A. of gritty southern soul music from the Memphis based Stax record label. The concert event featured performances from almost the entire roster of Stax Records, including Issac Hayes, Rufus Thomas, and the Staple Singers. Wattstax was also filmed as a documentary, with interviews with residents of the Watts community in L.A. interspersed between the performances. Enjoy!
