The band has scored eight number one hits, has sold over 100 million albums worldwide and released 23 albums. Eight of those albums went Double Platinum and hit the Top 10, making them one of the best-selling artists of all time. They've won an impressive nine Grammy Awards including one for Lifetime Achievement (2012).

For their record-breaking success, they’ve also been awarded with Lifetime Achievement honors from ASCAP, NAACP and BET. They have star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Their reach extends to heads-of-state. They have been invited to perform for Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, who said in an interview with Rolling Stone that Earth, Wind & Fire was a “rhythm and blues and pop staple.”
