GRAMMY Museum and Rock and Roll Forever Foundation Present: Lean on Me: Expressing Gratitude and Care with Music


GRAMMY Hall of Fame inductee, Bill Withers, was a prolific musician and inspiration to countless others. As a hard worker in and out of the recording studio, Bill understood the importance of teamwork and dependability, as his international hit, “Lean on Me” encompasses. Today, we take a closer look at his song and how it’s a reflection on today’s first responders, frontline workers, and helpers that risk themselves to protect their communities. Get ready to lighten your spirits as we treat our ears to one the most enduring and uplifting anthems of all time.
