Many people can’t name a pop/rock band that has survived six consecutive decades… Well, that honor can be bestowed upon Chicago. Chicago has continuously captured the hearts of many and today they did it again as they released their new song, “America”. The band currently consists of Robert Lamm, Lee Loughnane, Jimmy Pankow, and Walt Parazaider (who have been with the band since its origins in 1967); Jason Scheff (since 1985); Tris Imboden (since 1990); Keith Howland (since 1995); Lou Pardini (since 2009, though he toured with the band in 1999 and 2007);and Walfredo Reyes (since 2012).

As band co-founder Lee Loughnane explains, “America is a song that has been waiting to be written for many yearsThe core message of “America is you and me”, intuitively resonates with people. Chicago‘s grass-roots message, far from being polarizing, is crafted to inspire people of all political perspectives, who, though disagreeing vehemently on many points, still share common fears and hopes for the future of the nation – we are truly all in this together.”

When you first listen to the song, you will be drawn into the great Chicago style of music but even more so, as an American you are drawn into the lyrics and can’t help but become proud to be an American. Hope is alive today and is growing stronger in our country.

You can download “America”  at the following locations:

Chicago has been considered one of  the longest running and most successful pop/rock ‘n’ roll groups in history. You can’t deny that as they are the highest charting American band in Billboard Magazine’s list of Top 100 artists of all time, coming in at #13.
