Just hearing this song for the first time and it's amazing. It gives me goosebumps. I really haven't been familiar with most of his music since I was just a baby in the 70's but I'm going to buy his music! I started to become familiar with his music after purchasing his daughter's music, Lalah Hathaway, who is also such an amazing jazz and r&b artist. I see it absolutely runs in the family!

To ALL that may read this:
The Genius of the Angel that wrote and performed this "Timeless Classic", has gone UNSUNG for far too long! As with anything We truly Love,... it is an obligation to share. There will likely never be an artist so similar to Donny Hathaway, that we would say a song might sound like his. By All Means,..... Tell a Friend about this song Donny Hathaway. When I was a child I remembered loving his duets with Roberta Flack. His legacy is for All of Us! His lesson if
