Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr. have enjoyed tremendous success through the years as recording artists, performers, and authors. They have received seven Grammy Awards, earned 15 gold and 3 platinum records, and enjoyed starring roles on television and stage. They have performed sold-out concerts around the world. They are currently celebrating 40 years in the entertainment business with a musical tribute to the hits and productions that have made up their multi-faceted careers.
As lead vocalists of one of the top singing groups of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s, 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,” just to name a few.
After a decade with The 5th Dimension, Billy and 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 number-1 hit and earned them a Grammy for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group.
That success piqued network interest and CBS-TV premiered “The Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Jr. Show” as a prime-time summer series in 1977. Marilyn and Billy entered the ‘80s as an international success. They headlined in Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe, and Atlantic City, played to standing-room-only crowds in concerts across the country, and won the prestigious Grand Prize at the international Tokyo Music Festival.
Today, they are a sought-after act for all audiences.
