Poetic License: In Poem and Song features notable celebrities honoring Curtis Mayfield, one of the most influential figures in contemporary music. The man who wrote his first hit at the age of 13 and started his own publishing and recording company at the age of 19 brought major influences to gospel, funk, soul, and rhythm and blues. Even today, his style impacts rock, hip hop, and rap artists. In 1992, Mayfield was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and he received a Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award in 1995. His lyrics, including "Gypsy Woman" and "People Get Ready," are read by Jerry Butler, Roy Innis, Melissa Manchester, Freda Payne, Burt Reynolds, Sharon Stone, and Blair Underwood.
