Urban Soul Nation Presents… THE WHISPERS
One of R&B music’s most beloved and consistently popular vocal groups, The Whispers, began their legendary and timeless career in 1963. Twin brothers Walter and Wallace Scott joined with friends Nicholas Caldwell, Marcus Hutson, and Gordy Harmon to form a local singing group.
They perfected their tight harmonies on the street corners in the Watts section of Los Angeles and in nightclubs in the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Area. The Whispers produced a string of hits over the next two decades and emerged as the leading romantic singers of their generation, racking up one gold album after another and charting numerous R&B hits throughout the `70s and `80s.
The Whispers were the first artists featured on the newly formed Soul Train label (co-owned by the TV show’s creator and host Don Cornelius and entrepreneur Dick Griffey). They gained national attention with their `70s albums, “One For The Money,” “Open Up Your Love,” and “Headlights,” producing two singles that graced Billboard’s Top 20 R&B Charts: “(Let’s Go) All the Way” and “(Olivia) Lost and Turned Out.” Other popular hits from the `70s and `80s for The Whispers include “And the Beat Goes On” and “Rock Steady.”
