Soul Corner - Special 4th of July edition

The United States of America has contributed many great things to the world, and here in the US, we celebrate many of them today - democracy, freedom, the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights. And it's a a fun holiday in no small part because in many households there are 2 other elements to the day - American music and barbeque.

And so today we give you some of America's finest, live versions of a few quintessential soul songs, festive and celebratory.

And speaking of dancing, we can't forget the Motor City:

Maybe this one can help you beat the heat that is bearing down on much of the country right now:

The man himself, America's great musical ambassador, Ray Charles:

We'll close this dance party and hopefully inspire the music for your own celebration with one of America's true legends, James Brown, just absolutely killing it here from 1965:

Happy 4th of July from all of us here at WYMA.
