If you listen to Hip-hop, jungle, several UK dance sub-genres, or even TV commercials, you’ve heard the “Amen Brother” drum break performed by The Winstons. Despite being used in hundreds of songs, the original writer of the track never received any compensation for it’s use. Well, a DJ from the UK decided that wasn’t right, and started a GoFundMe page asking for donations to Richard L Spencer (the song writer of the original track).
What started out as a $1500 goal has now raised over $15,000! Yes, it’s still very small in comparison to all the millions the song probably generated, but it is still a great gesture for someone who can’t afford the legal fees to sue every artist that used it.
