Black Music History "Giving Them Roses" – Day 22: Leroy Hutson

A brother who truly deserves an Unsung special…

Here’s the reasons why you should know Leroy Hutson…
  • He was roommates with Donny Hathaway at Howard… (I didn’t discover Hutson until I went to the Capstone…)
  • Co-wrote Hathaway’s “The Ghetto”
  • Handpicked by Curtis Mayfield to replace him for The Impressions
  • Released a strong catalog of solo albums on Mayfield’s record label, Curtom
  • He made… “I’ll Be There, I Still Care”… if you don’t immediately dig this song… you might want to check your pulse…
Check that pulse…

Used by Kidz In The Hall for “Mr. Alladatshit”…
