Winner of three Grammy Awards, the Temptations is a five-member vocal group formed in 1960. It is known for its unique tracks, flashy wardrobes and choreography. The origin of the Temptations dates back to the time when members, Paul Williams and Eddie Kendricks began singing in the church. As teenagers, Kendricks and Williams founded a doo-wop quartet 'The Cavaliers' in 1955. 'The Cavaliers' consisted of Wiley Waller and Kell Osbourne, in addition to the two founding members. It was this group that became 'The Primes' upon the relocation of its members from Birmingham to Detroit. The Primes became a well-known doo-wop group and released several singles before disbanding in 1960.
Soon a friend Otis Williams contacted Kendricks and offered him the spot of the lead singer in his newly formed band. Kendricks along with Williams agreed to join the group. Together members, Melvin Franklin, Otis Williams, Paul Williams, Eddie Kendricks and Elbridge Bryant auditioned for the Motown Records under the name 'The Elgins,' in 1961. Impressed by their talent, the founder of Motown, Berry Gordy, signed the group to the recording company's imprint, Miracle Records. He then suggested the members to change their name from 'The Elgins' to 'The Temptations.'
The band's first charting single 'Dream Come True' was released in 1962. It reached number 22 on Billboard R&B chart. Other popular releases of the year include 'Check Yourself,' 'Of Mother of Mine,' 'I Want a Love I Can see.' In the group's career so far, it has released 43 studio albums, 4 live albums, 15 compilation releases and 109 singles.
