Rock and Roll Trivia

Clue 1:  This family group recorded for 7 different record labels over their illustrious career, garnering 3 Grammy awards and 2 dozen Top 40 hits along the way.

Clue 2:  Their lead singer was 7 when she won a grand prize on the Ted Mack Amateur hour, and they were touring nationally with Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson before she was 13. 

Clue 3:  They were the first to chart with a record that 6 different acts would take to the Hot 100.  Their version spent three weeks at #2, but Marvin Gaye’s would spend 7 weeks at #1.  Even the California Raisins managed to take it to #84 in 1988 – and they were made of clay!
