The Whispers' dance version of "And the Beat Goes On," is now available to download on their website and on on all streaming sites. It's the latest addition to their catalog of re-recorded hits to gain ownership of their masters.
With over 58 years in the music industry and a myriad of disappointments with traditional record companies, the Whispers have embarkedon a journeyto re-record covers of their catalog hits. The tag, "Whispers' Version," will be included on each title so fans can distinguish their versions from those owned by the record companies and conglomerates. The first single to drop is "Ane the Beat Goes On (Whispers' Radio Version)" to be followed by the extended dance version.
All Whispers' musical compositions with their vocals on them are considered their "catalog." In most cases, the record companies own the copyright to the sound recording (Masters), and the writer owns the copyright to the lyrics and composition. Th Artist has no ownership or control, receiving a very small percentage of the song's proceeds.
The Whispers ae one of the first "old school" artists to take control of their music by owning their masters and leaving a lasting income stream to their families.
Kingdom Records re-released a new version of "Praise His Holy Name" a cut from their "Thankful" Album. The composer is Maurice Joshua, and the writers are Magic Mendez and Merrily Garrett. It was followed by the House Remix.
