DJ Cassidy recently launched a new live series entitled Pass the Mic, where Cassidy will bring together music legends, "literally passing the mic from one home to the next."
The series comes as a result of a conversation between Cassidy and Earth, Wind, & Fire's Verdine White. While Cassidy was speaking with White one night, "That's the Way of the World" came on and it had him thinking about how special the moment was hearing the song while talking with White.
He wrote on Instagram, "I thought about how fortunate I was to have friendships with many of my heroes and how lucky I was to be able to enjoy their music in their company. I wondered if I could find a way to share that special feeling with others, so I sat at my turntables in my living room and began Zooming with my musical heroes of 1970s and 1980s, literally passing the mic from one home to the next."
He added, "I hope this virtual mix moves others as much as it has moved me. I am forever grateful to my musical heroes for their decades of hope, inspiration, and soul, and with them, I celebrate all the heroes around the world."
On July 2, he kicked off the series with an episode featuring Earth Wind & Fire, New Edition, Bobby Brown, and more. See Cassidy's Instagram for future updates on Pass the Mic.
