"I couldn't believe how much positive energy came out of these guys," said Cleveland Brown of working with Earth, Wind & Fire. "I just wish Donna wasn't eyeballing Philip the whole time. She said she wasn't. But she was."

"What a thrill to work with my childhood musical heroes!" said Mike Henry, Co-Creator/Executive Producer, "The Cleveland Show," and voice of Cleveland Brown. "Philip, Verdine and Ralph are so gracious, so humble and so ridiculously talented. And the song we made is truly something special. Get your hump on, everyone!"

"We jumped at the chance to perform a duet with one of television's gifted personalities," said Philip Bailey, leader and co-founder of Earth, Wind & Fire. "Being fans for many years, we are humbled to get our 'hump' on this Christmas with Cleveland and his creative family."

"Every girl who broke my heart in high school did so while an Earth Wind & Fire song was playing," said "The Cleveland Show" co-creator and showrunner Richard Appel. "But seeing that the guys are every bit as kind as they are talented made it hard not to forgive and forget."

The principles of Earth, Wind & Fire are Philip Bailey, Verdine White, Ralph Johnson and Maurice White. With a celebrated career spanning four decades, Earth, Wind & Fire have been nominated for 20 Grammy� Awards and have won six as a group. In 2000, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. To this day, Earth, Wind & Fire remain one of the most influential bands in popular and R&B music.
