Lilly Winwood singing her father Steve Winwood’s hit song with dad on the piano.

“I was born in East Texas and my mother and father’s families were from Arkansas and the generations before were from the Deep South. My father’s father was a Methodist preacher, a circuit rider, in Arkansas. My earliest memories are of the music in church and of my aunts and uncles singing the beautiful old hymns. ‘Higher Love’ is a generation past that, when things were not so much taken for granted, so that one has to plea, ‘Bring me a higher love,’ and the lines are all trying to explain why there must be higher love. A modern hymn, you might call it.”

James Vincent McMorrow writer of the lyrics of ‘Higher Love’
