    Tribute to Winfred "Blue" Lovett of the Legendary Manhattans (RIP)

    in Entertainment

    Winfred "Blue" Lovett, born November 16, 1943. Blue is one of the founding members and is the notable bass voice in the Manhattans.


    The Manhattans were formed in the early 60s in New Jersey as a quintet led by writer/bass vocalist Winfred "Blue" Lovett and emotive lead singer George Smith, along with Edward "Sonny" Bivins, Richard "Ricky" Taylor and Kenneth "Wally" Kelly, all of whom had just returned from service in the armed forces.  The group was popular regionally and had minor national success on the strength of some solid recordings for Carnival Records (their version of the country tune "From Atlanta to Goodbye" was a gem) in the late 60s before gaining the attention of Columbia Records in 1970.  Unfortunately, their Columbia signing coincided with the sudden illness and untimely death of lead singer Smith.  During a tour through North Carolina, the Manhattans came upon a college student with an amazing Sam Cooke-like voice.  Recognizing the incredible talent of this 21 year old, the group invited Gerald Alston to join, and he became the lead singer who would bring stardom to the quintet.

    in Music

    GERALD ALSTON 0f MANHATTANS on the MIDNIGHT SOUL SHOW with DJ MR.WILL on FACES OF SUCCESS RADIO please TUNE IN 


    As any R&B enthusiast will attest, the name Gerald Alston has always been synonymous with soul, elegance and sophistication. The one voice you never get tired of.


     


    Alston inherited some big shoes and has filled them admirably for over 17 years. Born in Henderson, North Carolina, Gerald Alston the son of Rev. J. B. Alston and the nephew of gospel great Johnny Fields of the Five Blind Boys of Alabama learned his trade in church. As a ten he formed Gerald Alston & the New Imperials, a group that performing both secular and religious music, called themselves The Gospel Jubilee when they appeared in churches.


    During a local appearance, Alston met the Manhattans when they borrowed equipment from Alston’s band. When the Manhattans heard Gerald rehearing, they loved what they heard and asked the 17 year old to join the group. Alston took over as their lead singer in 1970. The group enjoyed enormous success in the 70s and 80s with songs such as: There’s No Me Without You, Wish That You Were Mine, Hurt, We Never Danced To A Love Song, Don’t Take your Love From Me, I Kinda Miss You and It Feels So Good To be Loved So Bad. Their 1976 single Kiss and Say Goodbye was both a number one R&B and Pop hit. The Manhattans won a Grammy in 1980 for the big hit Shining Star.
