BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY : AFRICAN AMERICAN " TAVARES " THEY ARE BEST KNOWN FOR SUCH UP-TEMPO HITS AS THE MILLION-SELLING SINGLE " HEAVEN MUST BE MISSING AN ANGEL " : GOES INTO THE " HALL OF BLACK GENIUS "
BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY The five-brother singing group Tavares may be best known for such up-tempo hits as the million-selling single "Heaven Must Be Missing an Angel," "More Than a Woman," and "Whodunit," but they first came to national attention with the luscious ballad "Check It Out." Their crisp vocalizing and clean-cut, young-men-next-door image made them favorites on TV shows starring Johnny Carson, Mike Douglas, and Dick Clark's American Bandstand. In 1974,Tavares also had the first hit version (number one R&B) of "She's Gone" written by the then relative unknown duo of Daryl Hall and John Oates. Hall & Oates scored a number seven pop hit with the song in 1976.
