The Emotions

A trio of sisters with a strong gospel base, the Emotions (based in Chicago) were one of the leading female R&B acts of the '70s. Lead singer Sheila Hutchinson and her sisters Wanda and Jeanette were only teenagers when they crashed the soul charts in 1969 with the engaging "So I Can Love You," but they sang gospel as children and enjoyed secular fame locally before signing with Memphis-based Volt and working with producers Isaac Hayes and David Porter. When Stax folded in 1975, the group hooked up with Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire, an association that led to the number one pop/R&B hit "Best of My Love" in 1977. "Best of My Love," was one of the year's greatest cuts, with the Hutchinson sisters' tight harmonies working perfectly with White's joyous production.  The follow-up single was equally strong.  A beautiful ballad, "Don't Ask My Neighbors," took the group to the top of charts and became one of the most covered tunes of the next 20 years.

Two years after Best of My LoveMaurice White and the Emotions collaborated on "Boogie Wonderland," which was both a number two R&B and number six pop hit.
