The Moonglows

The Moonglows were an influental American R&B; and doo wop group, featuring such legendary singers as Bobby Lester, Harvey Fuqua, Alexander Graves and Prentiss Barnes, along with guitarist Billy Johnson. Originally known as The Crazy Sounds and The Moonlighters, they were renamed by Alan Freed. Their first hit was "Sincerely" (1954), which was followed by a series of R&B hits for Chess Records, including "Most of All" and "Please Send Me Someone to Love". The band's success had dried up by 1961, and didn't score any hits until a reworked version of "Sincerely" hit the charts after reuniting in 1972.

The group was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999.
