SATURDAY, JULY 26 AT 8:00 PMOne of R&B music’s most beloved groups, The Whispers began their legendary and timeless career in 1963. In 1969 they released “The Time Will Come” for Soul Clock Records, a small L.A. based label, and subsequently recorded their first Top 10 R&B hit, “Seems Like I Gotta Do Wrong,” in 1970 when the group moved to Janus Records.
The Whispers produced a string of hits over the next two decades, racking up one gold album after another and charting R&B hits throughout the ’70s and ’80s. They gained national attention with their 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 & Turned Out.”
Their first platinum album, The Whispers, highlighted “A Song for Donny” and their biggest hit “And The Beat Goes On.” It was their most successful selling album — double platinum. The neoclassic “Lady” is still a concert favorite. 1987’s Just Gets Better with Time went platinum and featured “Rock Steady,” their collaboration with Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds which made the R&B #1 and US Top 10.
