Flowers was released during The Emotions heyday with Columbia Records and affiliated with Maurice White and his group Earth Wind & Fire.
Both Flowers and the subsequent Rejoice achieved gold and platinum albums respectively.
Flowers combines the full flavour of Earth Wind & Fire s music power with exquisite vocals from the group.
Me For You was co-written by pianist Clarence McDonald, a Motown session player with Gladys Knight, The Jackson Five and Diana Ross.
Special Part Of Me was co-written by Deniece Williams, herself an artist recording with Maurice and Earth Wind & Fire.
From all the songs on Flowers , the title track has become the most enduring and is regarded as a classic. The album is produced by Maurice While with the help of Charles Stepney, the late Chicago based musician/arranger who worked with Marlena Shaw, The Dells and Ramsey Lewis.
