Top 10 Best Black Female Groups of All Time

Emotions

radiofacts.comThe Emotions were formed in Chicago, Illinois. They originally consisted of three sisters, all children of Joseph and Lillian Hutchinson. Joseph had prayed for talented children before the girls were born. They began singing in church choirs and were known as the Hutchinson Sunbeams. In 1968, the girls changed their name to ‘The Emotions’ and released their first album, So I Can Love You, the following year. The album’s title track, written by Sheila, was a minor hit single, as was “The Best Part Of A Love Affair”. In 1969 the girls were asked to be part of a summer outdoor concert in Rochester, New York. The group caught the eye of the host of the concerts, Herb Hamlett the black DJ at WCMF FM. Father Joe was the group’s guitarist and formed a friendship with Hamlett, that brought the group bookings and headliners in New York State.

SWV, TLC? Are you serious? I know chic’s on the block who will sing circles around them. Destiny’s Child? Same thing. En Vogue is barely making it. Salt n Pepa is a completely different genre.
