Throwback: Bubblin Brown Sugar

I woke up this morning saying HEY HEY HEY, quoting Dwayne Nelson from the TV sitcom “What’s Happening”. It made me think about how much I really enjoyed that TV show growing up. I’m not a big YouTube fan but I knew if I wanted to find a clip of one of my favorite episode’s from that show it would be on YouTube. WOW! I found so many great music videos from my childhood, movies, etc…Can’t wait to get home to do nothing but play on YouTube.

So here’s a CLASSIC moment of the Givens Kids singing Bubblin Brown Sugar
