A lot of people know Donny Hathaway for his Christmas staple “This Christmas”, after all it was recently rated by ASCAP as the 25th most-performed holiday song of the past five years based on radio airplay data tracked by Mediaguide. Honestly, up until a few months ago that’s all I knew him for too. Then I happened upon one of his greatest songs, “Someday We’ll All Be Free”, the lyrics brought Hathaway to tears when he heard the final mix of the song. The featured song that sampled “Someday We’ll All Be Free” is “Someday” off of DJ K.O.’s Picture This compilation.
