We are so fortunate to have an original member of the stand out acappella group, The Persuasions, as a guest on the show.Mr. Jayotis Washington has agreed to spend some time telling us about the fascinating group that influenced the likes of Boys II Men. The Persuasions began singing together in Brooklyn, New York in the mid-1960s. They have performed in a wide range of musical genres and have hits that I personally grew up listening to. Another fascinating fact about Mr. Washington is that he is the father of friend of our show, Legendary House Music Diva Barbara Tucker. Be sure to tune in and get some history and hear some fabulous music.
