#3 R&B, #39 Pop

Formed in Chicago, Illinois in 1968, The Emotions were the three daughters of Joseph and Lillian Hutchinson.

Jeanette, Wanda and Sheila Hutchinson started out singing in the church and performed on the gospel circuit as “The Hutchinson Sunbeams. ”

As teenagers they had their first big R&B/Pop hit in 1969, posted here for your listening pleasure, “So I Can Love You” with Stax Records under the tutelage of  dynamic duo of  Isaac Hayes and David Porter.

Sheila wrote this hit along with co-writing many of their group’s Seventies chart makers as well.

When Stax records folded Earth, Wind and Fire took the ladies under their wing to even greater chart success that we will surely discuss here at OSML in the near future.

Aren’t these harmonizing divas the best?!

Musically Yours,
