Check Out Inspiring DJ Cassidy-Curated ‘Get Up, Stand Up!’ Spotify Playlist for Joe Biden

After Thursday night’s (July 9) virtual fundraiser for
presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, DJ Cassidy
posted the inspiring 50-track “Get Up, Stand Up!: Songs for the
Soul of America” Spotify playlist compiled by the former Vice
President.

The compilation of uplifting songs ranges from the iconic reggae
title track by the Wailers, to such R&B classics as “Wake Up
Everybody” by Harold Melvin & the Bluenotes, “What’s
Going On” by Marvin Gaye, “I’ll Take You There” by The
Staples Singers, Stevie Wonder’s “Living for the City,” The
Isley Brothers’ “Harvest for the World” and Sly and the
Family Stones’ “Everyday People.”

In addition to beloved soul and folk songs from Sam & Dave,
Jackie Wilson, Barry White, the Four Tops, Bob Dylan, Buffalo
Springfield, and The Supremes, there are also tracks from gospel
giant Kirk Franklin (“Looking For You”) and songs from Janet
Jackson (“Together Again”), Rihanna and Calvin Harris (“We
Found Love”), Beyoncé (“Love on Top”), Alicia Keys (“No
One”) and Andra Day (“Rise Up”).

The playlist will be continuously updated with songs chosen by
Cassidy and other guest curators from now until the Nov. 3
election. “I could not be more honored and excited to be
launching Vice President Biden’s official Spotify channel,”
Cassidy — who spun at both of Pres. Obama’s inaugurations —
told Billboard exclusively. “Music has always played a
significant role in America’s social evolution and now, more than
ever, music has the power to inspire, uplift and unite. I hope the
playlists on this channel can serve to energize and mobilize us all
between now and November.”
