American living legends The O'Jays have a 50-year body of work that includes over 60 albums (10 gold and nine platinum), 24 Top Ten smashes including 10 #1 hits and 59 total charted songs including "Back Stabbers," "For The Love Of Money,""Darlin' Darlin' Baby," "Love Train," "I Love Music," "Use Ta Be My Girl" and "Have You Had Your Love Today." The group boasts three generations of fans, a phenomenon in pop music and according to the group, an exception rather than the rule.
The vocal group from Canton, Ohio originated with Eddie Levert, Sr., Walter Williams, Sr., William Powell, Bobby Massey and Bill Isles and they were named after Cleveland DJ Eddie O'Jay. Isles left the group in 1965. Massey left to become a record producer in 1971 and Levert, Williams and Powell continued as a trio. Powell retired from touring due to illness in late 1975, passing at the age of 35 in 1977 and was replaced by Sammy Strain, formerly with Little Anthony & The Imperials. Strain returned to his former group in 1993 and was replaced by Nathaniel Best. After the departure in 1995 of Best, Eddie Levert, Sr. and Walter Williams, Sr. reached out to Eric Nolan Grant, a gifted vocalist who was already a part of the group's extended Cleveland-based musical family. Their chart-topping album Love You to Tears marked Grant's first appearance with the group.
In 2002, their album For the Love was nominated for a Grammy Award. In addition to their many nominations each year for the past 43 years, The O'Jays continue to receive awards and honors. In 2004, the band was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame and in 2005, The O'Jays were inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Their hit, "For the Love of Money," became the theme song to Donald Trump's hit reality TV show, The Apprentice. In 2009, The O'Jays were awarded BET's Lifetime Achievement Award.
