"I've been searching, searching," for a soul-funk earworm...

I'm usually pretty good at name-that-tune, but... CHFI-FM's Funky Friday Mix last week had a random song from the 70's with the polished shimmer of a Philly Soul production and a funky mid-tempo beat which hinted at disco, a burbling synth which teased the bass player, and a rousing conclusion where a chorus of backing singers chants: "I've been searching, searching, searching..." or "I've been working, working, working..." intertwined with the lead vocalist in an interesting complex harmonic style. This would have been on AM radio in the 70's, maybe not a big hit, but on the charts. (On Google, "I've been searching" & soul/funk/disco just leads to the record bins. Not the Vandross/Change song).

Song Identification: Soulful cover of Summer Breeze

I heard a cover of the Seals and Crofts Song Summer Breeze while shopping in a mall store last week. Can you help me figure out who the artist was? It was in a mellow R&B style probably contemporary from the last 5 years or so, with kind of a hip-hop/reggae influenced groove, and (most likely) a female vocalist. The general mood was mellow and groovy and a little sexy.

Any Soundcloud recommendations for soul, funk?

The other day I was at a restaurant that had the following playlist: The Emotions - Best of my Love, Earth Wind & Fire - Shinig Star, Jackson 5 - I'll Be There, Al Green - Here I Am, Earth Wind and Fire - Fantasy. It was amazing. I listen to a lot of Soundcloud in my car and in my house, are there any Soundcloud playlists, people, etc. that fit this description? Other non-Soundcloud suggestions would work, but thought I'd try there first. Thanks!

Etta James sings...

20 years ago, at a concert in Toronto, Etta James sang a song that my partner fell in love with. To the best of her recollection it had the lyric, "why was was I born green, instead of blue -like everybody else?" I've googled around but can't narrow my results down to anything useful. Does anyone know what the title of this song might be and if there is a recording of it available?

Swelling, Call and Response, Gospel Choirs

I'm looking for music that features I can best describe as "swelling gospel choirs". The Autotune The News guys do a great pastiche of the style... the elements that jump out at me being the call and response and the introduction of melodic theme that's later repeated with far more voices in major key and occasionally jazz-inflected harmony (the refrain "Made in america!" towards the end is a perfect example). Some other exemplary tracks: Fired Up, All These Things That I Have Done, Souled Out, Get By. Is there some ur-gospel group that these artists are drawing from? I'm especially interested in acapella tracks, or those with minimal accompaniment, or those that sample acapella tracks.

Help me find just the right online crate to dig in - I'm working on a hipstery disco record (think Daft Punk, MSTRKRFT) and would love to find some old happy, dancey funk/soul/whatever you want to call it to sample, but I'd like to shy away from anything super mainstream or typical.
