Philip Bailey (born May 8, 1951, in Denver, Colorado) is an American R&B, soul, gospel and funk singer, songwriter and percussionist, best known as one of the longtime members of Earth, Wind & Fire. Together with Verdine White, B. David Whitworth, and Ralph Johnson he forms the heart of the current EWF line-up on stage. Bailey found fame by sharing the lead vocals on EWF songs with EWF-founder Maurice White. Their harmonic voices are legendary. Bailey is most famous for his falsetto and sung lead on such songs as "Devotion", "Head to the Sky", "Reasons", "Fantasy " and "I've Had Enough". Bailey's most notable solo song was a duet with Phil Collins called "Easy Lover" which was included on his Gold solo album Chinese Wall . The album was also produced by Collins and was released on Columbia Records. Phil Collins, during a radio interview, was asked how "he discovered" Philip Bailey. Annoyed with the interviewer's lack of knowledge, Collins made up a story about how he had been filling his car with gas/petrol when he heard the attendant singing...and that turned out to be Philip Bailey. The interviewer believed the whole story, which was also picked up by other media outlets.
