It was important to receive a proclamation from his city of birth, Danny Woods Day is officially March 27th on his Birthday!  Initially I asked for a key to the city and I was told that Keys to the City and another award were only given to the living!   I’m proud that the Danny Woods’ proclamation set the tone and inspired other families with loved ones in the public eye to receive their very own proclamations on their loved ones birthdays in Atlanta also!

 

Charlotte was written by myself and his niece Leah Woods! When I asked the beach music community to assist in making this happen Brenda Stanton was hands on, she sent emails to the office of Mayor Liles!

Grammy Hall of Fame and a posthumous mention on this upcoming weekend!

Dear Recording Academy, I am asking you to please write about and mention live about Danny Woods on your live broadcast this weekend!

 

 

 

Danny Woods formerly of the Chairmen of The Board passed away on January 12th, 2018 at his home in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. He was 75. The 7 octave performer had an infectious smile and an electric presence. One fan remembers him being on stage and jumping off of a trailer. “Chairmen Of The Board, one of the most popular Detroit acts in the early ’70’s, had a top 10 hit with “Give me Just a Little More Time,” as well as several Top 10 hits on the R&B Singles chart, including “Pay To The Piper,” “Chairmen Of The Board” and “Finder’s Keepers.” Grammys

My father-in-law also has a rare and coveted Aries album.

 

 

 

The most searched songs on Shazam are “Down At The Beach,” “You Had Me Fooled,” “Do Right,” “Pay To The Piper,” and “Back To The Beach.”

I am confident that his gospel albums will do the same!

I also call upon the beach community to hashtag #DannyWoodsChairmenOfTheBoardGrammys to get the attention of the Recording Academy and the Billboard Awards #DannyWoodsChairmenOfTheBoardBillboardAwards in hopes that they mention him! Lastly I challenge you to petition your mayors to create a Danny Woods day in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Atlanta, Detroit and North Carolina. Thank you
