The Whispers are a R&B / dance vocal group from Los Angeles, California. They formed in 1964 in Los Angeles. The original members included the twin brothers, Scotty and Wallace Scott, along with Gordy Harmon, Marcus Hutson and Nicholas Caldwell. In 1973 Harmon was replaced by former Friends of Distinction member Leaveil Degree. The group scored many hits on the R&B and Billboard Hot 100 charts throughout the 1970s and 1980s, and they hit #1 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart in 1980 with «And the Beat Goes On» / «Can You Do the Boogie» / «Out the Box».

In 1997 the group moved to Interscope Records where they featured the works of Baby face once again with their album, "Songbook, Vol. 1: The Songs of Babyface”. Both albums charted on Billboards top 100 albums.

Marcus stopped performing with the group in 1989 due to ill health, and in 2000, when he passed on, the Whispers vowed never to replace him. In the new millennium the group still performs around the…читать далее ↓
