Billy Davis switched fields (from cotton to music) when his family migrated from Mississippi to Detroit. There he hooked up with Hank Ballard, who had a string of R & B hits during the 1950s-60s. Hank Ballard & The Midnighters achieved international fame as one of the most risqué groups of their time with songs like "Annie Had a Baby.” At one time they were the 1 vocal group in the world. In 1959, Ballard released his song "The Twist" and a year later, Chubby Checker's version went to 1 on the pop charts.
