Top Flight North Coast Jazz Group pays special Tribute to R & B Icons Barry White & Teddy Pendergrass!
Special Featured Vocalists Walter Anthony Jr. & Dion Davis.
Barry White is a three-time Grammy Award–winner known for his distinctive bass-baritone voice and romantic image, White's greatest success came in the 1970s crafting many enduring soul, funk, and disco songs such as his two biggest hits, «You're the First, the Last, My Everything» and «Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Babe».
During the course of his career, White achieved 106 gold albums worldwide, 41 of which also attained platinum status. White had 20 gold and 10 platinum singles, with worldwide record sales in excess of 100 million,
Teddy Pendergrass first rose to fame as lead singer of Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes in the 1970s before a successful solo career. In 1977, Pendergrass released his self-titled album, which went platinum on the strength of the disco hit «I Don't Love You Anymore.» Its follow-up single, «The Whole Town's Laughing At Me,» became a top 20 R&B hit. The debut album was quickly followed by «Life Is a Song Worth Singing», in 1978. That album was even more successful with its singles «Only You» and the classic million selling number 1 R&B hit «Close the Door.»
By early 1982, Pendergrass was perhaps the leading R&B male artist of his day, equaling the popularity of Marvin Gaye, and surpassing Barry White and all others in the R&B field.
In March of 1982, Pendergrass was severely injured in an auto accident in Philadelphia, resulting in his being paralyzed from the chest down.
