State Of Art – Hero (Promo Clip)

Raymond Jones Posted on 2013-03-28 21:28

Norma Jean Wright and the late Raymond Jones both CHIC alumni teamed up in the early 90s for a joint project, calling themselves “State Of Art” some of the promo video clips from that project was posted on the Raymond Jones memorial page on this site.

Another of the clips have now surfaced on Youtube. It’s a song called “Hero” which was released in 1990. Below is the Youtube clip, but I have tried to clean it up a bit, and posted it on Raymond’s memorial page.

Tomorrow , Friday March 29th, BBC4 will broadcast a documentary on Nile Rodgers “The Hitmaker” at GMT 21:00 (9pm).

Nile Rodgers: The Hitmaker recounts a captivating and moving story of a man who has created some of the most sparkling and ebullient pop music ever recorded.
