Two of the most celebrated vocalists in pop and R&B history, McCoo and Davis have received seven Grammy Awards and earned 15 gold and three platinum records, and enjoyed starring roles on television and stage. They have performed to sold-out concerts around the world, and this tour recognizes their deep history with sounds of R&B, Gospel, Jazz and Pop.
As lead vocalists of one of the top singing groups of the late 1960s and early 1970s, The 5th Dimension, they recorded such classics as “Up, Up & Away,” “Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In,” “Wedding Bell Blues,” “One Less Bell To Answer” and “Stoned Soul Picnic” to name a few.
After a decade with The 5th Dimension, Billy & Marilyn decided to leave the group and establish themselves as a duo. They had immediate success with the single, “You Don’t Have To Be A Star (To Be In My Show).” It was a #1 hit and earned them a Grammy for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group.
Multiple television and stage opportunities soon followed, including the CBS prime time program “The Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis Jr. Show,” McCoo’s five years as host of “Solid Gold” and Davis’ acclaimed portrayal of James “Thunder” Early in “Dreamgirls.”
