Rejoice is an album by The Emotions released in 1977 on Columbia Records and produced by Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire. The album contains the highly successful number one Pop, R&B and Disco hit "Best of My Love", and Rejoice has been certified platinum in the US by the RIAA. Rejoice was also the third bestselling R&B album of 1977. In a 2007 interview when asked which album that he produced, besides those that he did for Earth, Wind & Fire, is his favorite, White replied: "The Emotions's Rejoice because it had a great vibe, a great ‘feel’. Yeah, I'm proud of that production."
