Album Notes
EVERYBODY HAS THE RIGHT, an anthem in support of marriage equality, was initially written by Chris Bennett and co-writer Lisa-Catherine Cohen in response to former President George W. Bush's attempt to pass a United States Constitutional amendment limiting the legal definition of marriage to one man and one woman. In 2010, the duo recruited out music artist McKinley Marshall as a third co-writer, producer, and arranger, and the dance music powerhouse EVERYBODY HAS THE RIGHT was born.

This CD features a Radio Mix and an extended Club Mix of the song, with vocal performances by disco divas Chris Bennett and Pattie Brooks. A portion of proceeds from the sale of CDs and song downloads will benefit groups working in support of marriage equality.

Chris Bennett is a Grammy-nominated composer, singer, and pianist who in more recent years has released twelve critically-acclaimed contemporary jazz albums; her dance music credentials extend to the 1970's—the golden decade of Disco—as a Casablanca Records recording artist with iconic music producer Giorgio Moroder and the electronica super-group Munich Machine.

Casablanca label-mate Pattie Brooks, a frequent guest artist on American Bandstand and Soul Train, released three solo albums on the imprint and scored a 1978 Billboard Top Ten single with the rousing disco hit "After Dark" (from the movie "Thank God It's Friday").

Combined, Chris and Pattie have worked with a veritable who's who of number-one recording artists, including Donna Summer, Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Paula Abdul, Thelma Houston, Teena Marie, Jermaine Jackson, and Keb Mo. Ardent supporters of equal rights for all people, Chris and Pattie are proud to lend their voices to EVERYBODY HAS THE RIGHT.

My new favorite song!
I am so inspired by this great track by two legends of Disco, Pattie Brooks and Chris Bennett are in top form on this rousing disco anthem. Finally, an anthem for our cause. This song could help us win in the Supreme Court. Tell your friends!

Great production, awesome blend of vocal talents—both mixes make me want to get up and shake it! Thanks to Chris Bennett and Pattie Brooks, co-writer/producer McKinley Marshall, and co-writer Lisa-Catherine Cohen for this powerful and relevant release.

Jamming loud and proud!
Awesome, ladies! I hope you perform this song at 2013 Pride in WeHo this year. See you there! In the meantime, I'm telling everyone I know to download these tracks! So glad you're donating a portion of proceeds to the pro marriage equality cause.
