Original founding members Walter Williams and Eddie Levert first formed The O’Jays in 1963, in Canton, Ohio, and over 50 years later, they’re still touring with the same electrifying energy, thrilling fans the world over. After being signed to a major label in 1972, The O’Jays scored their first number 1 hit, the million-selling “Backstabbers,” to be followed by a long run of legendary, chart-topping pop/R&B singles like “Love Train”, “Put Your Hands Together”, “For The Love of Money”, “I Love Music”, “Livin’ For The Weekend” and “Use Ta Be My Girl.”
The O’Jays were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2005, inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2005, and honored with BET’s Life Time Achievement Award in 2009. In 2013, they were also inducted into the R&B Music Hall of Fame. Throughout their career The O’Jays have earned 10 Gold albums, 9 Platinum albums and 10 #1 hits. It’s been a long journey, but thanks to the fans, the Love Train is still going strong!
