The Four Tops

Origin: United States

Genre: R&B/Soul/Funk

Singers Levi Stubbs, Renaldo Obie Benson, Lawrence Payton and Abdul Duke Fakir first joined their voices at a birthday party, in 1954. The quartet went through a decade of stops and starts before landing a deal with Motown. Along with The Temptations and The Supremes, they became one of the most successful acts of the Sixties, scoring a string of hits with I Can't Help Myself, Reach Out (I'll Be There) and Standing in the Shadows of Love, to name but a few. Since then, the group has been recording and touring on a regular basis, despite the loss of original members Payton and Stubbs. In 1990, The Four Tops were inducted into the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame.
