The Manhattans first hit the music scene in 1966 when their debut album "Dedicated to You" peaked at #19 on the U.S. R&B charts. The group's 1976 self-titled album reached #6 on the U.S. charts and was certified Gold.

The Manhattans enjoyed further success in 1980 with the Platinum-selling single "Shining Star."

Rose Royce took the R&B world by storm in the 1970s with hit singles "Car Wash," "I Wanna Get Next to You," "I'm Going Down," "Wishing on a Star" and "Love Don't Live Here Anymore." The Los Angeles-based group recorded four studio albums from 1976-79.

New York native Freddie Jackson released four consecutive #1 albums from 1985-90 and is best-known for the hits "Rock Me Tonight (For Old Times Sake)," "You Are My Lady," "Tasty Love," "Jam Tonight" and many more.

Williams also topped the charts with "I've Got the Next Dance," "It's Gonna Take a Miracle" and "Let's Hear It for the Boy."
