One of Britain’s most successful r&b acts and the UK’s answer to the Jacksons. Five Star’s legacy is that they were the first all singing and all dancing UK r&b acts to cross over and become megastars in their own right. With a string of hits, a huge profile and best of all it was totally in-house. They should have had much more success in the U.S than they did.
You just can’t listen to 80s r&b, rap and hip hop and wonder where all the innocence went. The music back then wasn’t all about bling, guns, n***as, bitches and hoes. I managed to dig this up and it even features a young Whitney Houston when her star began to shine. Something for the younger generation to get inspired.
