    All of your faves took lessons from them even if they don’t know. Their inspiration can be found in EVERYONE’S vocal stylings. (At least the ones who can sang) You will put RESPECT on their names.

      Yes and they’re very humble and giving, some times I say they give to much to their fans, lol. And they’re VERY hands on with community service in Detroit, counseling, serving in their actual home church and even their mothers old home church. I love them. They’re so real beyond their music.

      And they’ve been recording (paid and professionally) since 1968 and they are STILL relevant today, in multiple genres. That’s CRAZY.
