William DeVaughn - Songs


William DeVaughn (b. 1947) is an R&B/soul singer, songwriter, and guitarist with a style often compared to that of Curtis Mayfield who became famous during the mid 1970s. He is best known for the the self-penned and uplifting "Be Thankful For What You Got" (1974), which topped the R&B charts, made the Pop/Rock Top 5, and went gold. A longtime favorite on gospel music stations, a remake of this song was released in 1980 that became a hit on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart and in the U.K.
