Fambrough–one of the founding members of the iconic R&B group–participated in a ceremony that included the gifting of 375 outfits and 200 pairs of shoes that the 6x Grammy-nominated group wore throughout their illustrious career. The day’s events all included a visit to Motown’s Studio A, a location that Fambrough noted, “I used to dream about this place.”

THE SPINNERS–one of the biggest and most influential soul groups of the 1970’s, helping to create the foundation for The Sound of Philadelphia–are well-known for their string of soulful and vocally harmonic hits produced by Thom Bell, with songs like “I’ll Be Around,” “Ghetto Child,” and “The Rubber Band Man,” as well as the chart-topping “Then Came You” featuring Dionne Warwick and more during their time recording for Atlantic Records.

THE SPINNERS formed in 1954 in suburban Detroit and celebrate a 60+ decade career which has included consistent touring and massive hits. With their awe-inspiring vocal range and harmonic abilities on songs that elegantly merged smooth Philly soul with glistening pop, THE SPINNERS have left a big mark on the musical world.

THE SPINNERS have remained an actively touring group for decades, performing their beloved hits to audiences of all ages, and released a new album in 2021, Round the Block and Back Again.

Their first single “That’s What Girls Are Made For” peaked at No. 27 on the Billboard Hot 100 pop chart in 1961. Then, after almost a decade with Motown, THE SPINNERS signed to Atlantic Records in 1973. The group also received a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1976 and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999. THE SPINNERS continue to record music and their cultural impact extends into movies and TV.
