I believe that I could not be more grateful to an author than I am to David Paich and Jeff Porcaro for creating this masterpiece. Almost four decades after its release, this song still has enormous potential, which I was able to exploit to create a collective cover, in which I surrounded myself with a team of wonderful artists. With most of them we met just to realize the project for this cover, and the broad consensus we got on YouTube paved the way for several new collaborations that we are building together.
“It’s gonna take a lot to drag me away from you
There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
I bless the rains down in Africa
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had”
