Every song has a story. Aretha Franklin said, “Music can take you right back, years back, to the very moment certain things happened in your life.” Dick Clark added, “Music is the soundtrack of our lives.”

Both musical icons play a part in The Story Behind the Song as Grinker takes us behind the scenes with the composers, arrangers, and artists of our favorite songs.

You Are There for the surprising stories behind the words and music of The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Quincy Jones, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Marion Anderson, Kate Smith and Chuck Berry.

Grinker also will share little known, fascinating stories behind such classics as “Amazing Grace,” “God Bless America” and “Yankee Doodle Dandy.”
