The Emotions

A trio of sisters with a strong gospel base, the Emotions (based in Chicago) were one of the leading female R&B acts of the '70s. Lead singer Sheila Hutchinson and her sisters Wanda and Jeanette were only teenagers when they crashed the soul charts in 1969 with the engaging "So I Can Love You," but they sang gospel as children and enjoyed secular fame locally before signing with Memphis-based Volt and working with producers Isaac Hayes and David Porter. When Stax folded in 1975, the group hooked up with Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire, an association that led to the number one pop/R&B hit "Best of My Love" in 1977.

Two years after Best of My Love, Maurice White and the Emotions collaborated on "Boogie Wonderland," which was both a number two R&B and number six pop hit. They issued three more albums on White's ARC label from 1979 to 1981, but were unable to duplicate their earlier success. They moved to the Red label for the 1984 LP Sincerely, which included the single "All Things Come in Time." They issued three other singles from the album, but none made much impact, though each one charted. They then signed with Motown, but issued only one album, If I Only Knew. Sheila Hutchinson was a featured vocalist on Garry Glenn's "Feels Good to Feel Good" in 1987. Pam and Jeanette Hutchinson did background vocals on Helen Baylor's gospel song "There's No Greater Love" in 1990. Wanda Hutchinson and Jeanette sang on Earth, Wind & Fire's Heritage in 1990. ~ Bill Dahl and Ron Wynn

This was the time when you could actually sing the lyrics to the music. I was born in the 50's, but grew to love this music in the 70's. I feel sorry that our kids (growing up today) are not as fortunate as we were.

This era of music not only reminds you of the times of the past but how the love of our people was spread through our music. Sad to say our music messages are not the same. You get artist are not led to spread a positive message. It is based on money. Drugs, parties and profanity. Straight degradation of our men and women. If it doesn't help it's hurting us. Our youth have no role models in the industry. Let me day that everyone isn't bad. It's just different today. Love to my people. Chief Keit
