Kashif – “The History of R&B Music” Indiegogo Campaign Promo from Grown Folks Music on Vimeo.

And the campaign rolls on… GFM fam we wanted to drop this quick message from Kashif today as we enter 46 days left to contribute to the Indiegogo campaign for this monumental documentary series. One aspect that is crucial to note is that this film will not only tell the story of the pioneers of this music but proceeds from the sales and distribution of this film will go to support the work of the Rhythm and Blues Foundation and all of the important work they do with assisting aging artists with their housing and medical needs. We are urging all of the “Real Lovers of R&B Music” to stand up and be counted and to contribute to and spread the word about this campaign and this film. We want all of you to join this movement and to “Do it for the love of R&B Music!”
