2) EVERYDAY PEOPLE was an american funk/soul band that made one album in 1972. They covered Kool & The Gang’s ‘”Funky Granny” and “Who’s Gonna Take the Weight” Stevie Wonder’s “Superwoman” and “I Like What I Like” which was written by the Canadian Everyday People.

3) In October of 1987, Stanford University juniors Larry Shorter and Tony Stovall were inspired by Sly Stone’s multi-racial, multi-gendered band, Sly and the Family Stone, whose music emphasized inclusiveness and acceptance. Less interested in crossing racial lines than in demolishing them, Stone found a huge audience, both black and white, for his message of optimism about what America could be. As a tribute to this great musician’s dream, Shorter and Stovall formed Everyday People, based on Stone’s 1967 hit of the same title, and thus brought together what one journalist calls, one of the only “truly integrated” collegiate a cappella groups in the nation.

With recording awards from the Contemporary A Cappella Society for its 1993 album, Shades of Soul, its 1996 album wail, 3 awards for its 1998 release, 2648 West Grand Blvd, and a phenomenal Best Album of the Year award for 1999’s EP JONES, Everyday People has thrilled audiences across the country and internationally as well.
