The O'Jays + The Temptations Review
Unfortunately, due to continued illness of Dennis Edwards, Paul Williams Jr. will be replacing him for this performance. Paul is the son of founding Temptations member Paul Williams Sr. Without a doubt, his vocal range and style will make this a memorable experience.
The O'Jays are touring history, a connection to an era and a sound that formed the soundtrack for the lives of several generations. The O'Jays are still hitting the road with the same electrifying energy they've had for over 50 years.
Walter Williams and Eddie Levert first met when they were the ages of 6 and 7 respectively. As teenagers in Canton, Ohio, they formed a band originally consisting of Eddie Levert, Walter Williams, William Powell, Bobby Massey and Bill Isles. In 1963, the band took the name "The O'Jays" in tribute to Cleveland radio disc jockey Eddie O'Jay. Several members have changed, but the core, original lead singers Eddie Levert and Walter Williams, continue to front the group.
The O'Jays were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2005. They were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2005 and honored with BET's Life Time Achievement Award in 2009. In 2013, they were inducted into The Official R&B Music Hall of Fame. Today, the songs The O'Jays are still being used in many movies, commercials and TV shows. "For The Love of Money" continues to be the theme song for "The Apprentice."
