Share this page:
One of R&B’s most beloved vocal groups, the Whispers produced a string of hits throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s. In the years since, their harmonies have helped them earn international acclaim.

The group began their career in 1963 when twin brothers Walter and Wallace Scott joined friends Nicholas Caldwell, Marcus Hutson, and Gordy Harmon to form a local singing group. They perfected their tight harmonies on the street corners in the Watts section of Los Angeles and in nightclubs in the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Area.

The Whispers produced a number of hits over the next two decades, racking up one gold album after another and charting numerous R&B hits throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s. They gained national attention with their albums One For The Money, Open Up Your Love, and Headlights, producing two singles that graced Billboard’s Top 20 R&B Charts: “(Let’s Go) All the Way” and “(Olivia) Lost and Turned Out.”
