Welcome to the 513th edition of Who Am I?, the weekly game where I dish out a daily clue to a subject and you have to guess who or what it is.

Every day, the clues get easier. The winner of this week's game gets a piece of my gratitude.

This week's subject is a PERSON.

CLUE #1: I grew up around lots of music at home.

Grover Washington Jr.
Congrats, Aaron!

It's Grover Washington, Jr., the legendary saxophonist best-known for his 1980 hit with the late Bill Withers, "Just The Two Of Us". It peaked at #2 on the pop charts. His other big hit was "I Like It" with the supergroup The Blackout All-Stars in 1994. He died in 1999 from a massive heart attack after performing a few songs on CBS's Early Show. He was 56.



New game next week!

Well fuhhkkkkk me! I have that Grover Washington CD, and I thought the vocalist was Al Jarreau. So I picked him instead of GW Jr. Al Jarreau was in We Are the World.

Anyway, you got it Aaron, congrats! Great game King!
