Original founder and leader of
“The Floaters” with Miss Diamond
The man that organized and fronted the multi-platinum selling vocal group from Detroit has musically vented!
Larry has spent the last 15 years writing his testimony and his latest accomplishment “The Essence of Grace” is his musical story come to fruition.
The Floaters were an African-American R&B vocal group, from the Sojourner Truth housing projects in Detroit, Michigan, that formed in 1976. The group are best known for their 1977 song "Float On", which reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, #1 on the UK Singles Chart, and #5 on the Irish Singles Chart.
The band was formed by the former The Detroit Emeralds' singer James Mitchell, with his brother Paul Mitchell, Larry Cunningham, Charles Clark, and the unrelated Ralph Mitchell. Most of The Floaters were from the Sojourner Truth housing project on Detroit's Eastside.
James Mitchell wrote the band's one major hit, "Float On", with Arnold Ingram and Marvin Willis. The lyrics spotlight each member of the band, who introduced themselves with their name, astrological sign, and ideal type of romantic partner.The song was produced by Woody Wilson. It became a world wide hit in 1977 on ABC Records, reaching #1 on the US R&B chart, #2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, and #1 in the UK Singles Chart (for a single week in August that year).
Follow-ups such as "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" (#28 Billboard R&B chart) were not as successful. The group continued to record, releasing four studio albums over the next few years.
A new recording of the song "Float On" was recorded in 2001 for the album Still Standing by the group Full Force.
This song was also sampled by Canadian hip hop recording duo Dream Warriors, in their song of the same name

Its a gift of committing, providing, truly loving and being positive/godly leaders. Some women have begun catching theyre men sleeping with others (including other men) and some women stay some dont.
