With the release “The Thrill is Gone” (1969), B.B. King solidified his role as Black music’s ambassador to the world. Throughout the 1970s King also found crossover success with singles like “Ain’t Nobody Home” (1972) and “To Know You Is To Love You” (1973), which was written and originally recorded by Stevie Wonder and Syretta Wright.

King’s most successful recordings, 1997’s Deuces Wild — 17 tracks with 17 different artist ranging from Van Morrison to Heavy D, Bonnie Rait and D’Angelo — and his 2000 collaboration with Clapton, Riding with the King, which went double platinum and earned the duo a Grammy Award, were both examples of how successful King’s efforts were.

B.B. King was everything our history needs to remember with all the obstacles as a Black man could face overcame in multitudes.

He gave face to the Blues and showed his talents with going outside of the box with his music. B.B. King let nothing stop him from his dreams.
He is and was the epiphany of a Black Man – a person to look up to, aspire to be like, respect, love and appreciate.

Thank you for all that you were and all that will always be in our minds.
