Charles Williams – “Every Beat of My Heart” at the Monterey Jazz Festival

In 1984, Charles Williams preformed with Johnny Otis at The Monterey Jazz Festival. We discovered this video in Charles’ archives which features Charles singing the band’s Grammy nominated hit — Every Beat Of My Heart.

Historical note — this is a song that Johnny Otis wrote over 50 years ago for Gladys Knight and it was her first big hit in 1961 reaching #6 on the charts!
