#CLASSICTUESDAYS-McFadden & WhiteHead "Ain't No Stopping Us Now"....


I hope you enjoyed our #ClassicTuesdays! I love music it shouldn't be hard to tell, it has been a passion of mine since early childhood and has followed me throughout adulthood, however all things must come to an end, this is our last post of #ClassicTuesdays til Fall at least...or until we can hire some Staff!!!! Lol... Who remembers this song "Ain't No Stopping Us Now"? So very inspirational and still used to Unite!

"Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now" is a 1979 disco song performed by R&B duo McFadden & Whitehead, from their debut album McFadden & Whitehead. They wrote and produced the song along with keyboard player Jerry Cohen.[1] Released as the lead single from the album, the song spent a week at number one on the R&B singles chart. It also proved to be a successful crossover hit, peaking at number thirteen on the Billboard Hot 100, and reached number 5 in the UK.[2] The single also made it to number ten on the disco charts.[3] It eventually went double platinum, selling over 2 million copies.

"Ain't No Stopping Us Now" is about succeeding despite having faced previous disadvantages ("so many things that held us down"). It was widely interpreted to be about the experience of the African American community, and after attaining popularity, became referred to as "the new black national anthem"[4][5] (the original being the 1900 song "Lift Every Voice and Sing"

These Lyrics are a bit Sketchy! However I kept them because of the enthusiasm they included.
