Jessie Daniels along with his nephews formed the group Force MD's in 1981. They were frequently seen on the Staten Island Ferry and in other NYC locations singing in perfect harmony. Eventually the group signed up with Tommy Boy Records and produced classics! The group produced a collection of R&B hits throughout the 1980s, and received overwhelming commercial success from the Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis-penned love song "Tender Love" from their second album, 1985's Chillin’. The song was featured in the 1985 feature film and soundtrack Krush Groove, and proved to be a huge success, peaking at #10 in the Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming an instant R&B classic after it stayed on the chart for 19 weeks. "Tender Love" was also one of the tracks that helped Jam & Lewis garner a Grammy Award for Producer of the Year. In 1987 they finally scored their first R&B #1 hit, "Love is a House," from their third album, Touch & Go. The fellas are still doing their thing and Jessie Daniels will be joining me, Meka RaeNathan James, and you for Brunch In The Basement With JaVonne.
