Singer-songwriter John Anderson, a longtime friend of the Seminole Tribe, paid homage to Seminole medicine man Bobby Henry at the Florida Strawberry Festival on March 7 in Plant City.

Before playing his hit single “Seminole Wind,” Anderson paused to recognize Henry, who was in the audience.

“I’d like to say a very special hello to Mr. Bobby Henry, the chief medicine man from the Seminole Tribe of Florida, along with all his guests,” said Anderson, who also thanked Henry for his work on the song’s video, which has millions of views on YouTube. “[Henry] was one of the ones responsible for it. If it weren’t for him, we could never have done that video like we did. God bless you, brother. We love you and all the respect to you.”

The crowd applauded Henry.

“Seminole Wind,” released in 1992, reached No. 2 in the United States and No. 1 in Canada. It is often played at large events for the Seminole Tribe

Anderson received a standing ovation from the festival audience at the end of the song.

Henry proved to be popular among audience members, who shook his hand and took photos with him after the concert.
