William DeVaughn is a DC native who, despite a lifelong moral ambivalence toward show business, scored a multi-million-selling, #1 hit with the self-produced "Be Thankful For What You've Got". It remains an uplifting summertime anthem in and around the District and around the world. The LP's other tracks also follow in that vein of wholesome, encouraging slices of life--delivered with a voice and style that recalls a little bit of Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, and Al Green.
