They served as backup singers for Lou Rawls, Teddy Pendergrass, Aretha Franklin, and Le Pamplemousse. They worked with Diana Ross from 1975-78 and were the backup singers on Linda Clifford's 1978 album If My Friends Could See Me Now. Their biggest hit was "You Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else". The song broke the Billboard Magazine Top 40 at #38 in May 1979.

The song was also a Top 5 R&B hit, during the same time. An additional R&B hit followed in 1980, with the single "I Just Love The Man", charting at #9 in January 1981. The less successful, "Nights Over Egypt" (released in 1981, charting at R&B #23 in 1982) is currently a cult classic that receives more airplay, on urban radio stations, than their bigger previous hits. After the release and failure of their fourth U.S. album, On Target, lead singer Shirley Jones pursued a solo career and had a #1 R&B hit on Billboard with "Do You Get Enough Love", from her top ten debut album Always In The Mood. "Who Can I Run To", from the groups self-titled 1979 debut album, was covered by Xscape in 1995. Their cover became a number #1 R&B and #8 Pop hit.

Valorie Jones died on December 2, 2001 in Detroit at the age of 45. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
